This is post 2451 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

When I lived near a beach on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu (Haleiwa), I used a salt water dummy load made from a UHF connector, an old Mason jar, an odd assortment of resistors, and some clear salt water from the ocean to make a crude, but workable dummy load for my old HW-101.  The finished project kept my rig happy for several months until I was able to buy a Health "Cantenna" dummy load.

In this video from "104's World", we see a few examples of this basic antenna accessory. This revised design is cheap and easy-to-build.
