Here are some comments from Randy (K7AGE):

In this video, I build a simple QRP Dummy Load that is good for up to 20 watts. It even has test point that you can use a meter to measure the voltage to calculate the power of your transmitter. Parts needed: 8x 100 ohm 3 watt metal film resistors 1x 1N5711 diode 1x 0.01 uF capacitor BNC or SO239 connector Elecraft sites: http://www.elecraft.com/mini_module_k... http://www.elecraft.com/manual/E74006...
