Every ham radio station needs a dummy load.  This piece of equipment allows transmitter testing and adjustment with minimal RF energy. In this well-organized video from Randy Hall (K7AGE), we get a step-by-step tutorial on how to make an inexpensive QRP dummy load capable of handling 20 watts input. The device is small enough to put in your knapsack or "go-kit". Here are the materials needed for this project: "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...

Here's a simple, effective QRP dummy load for field or portable operations.  In this video, Randy (K7AGE) takes us from beginning to end in making this useful station accessory.  Randy says the dummy load can handle 20 watts without a problem. The dummy load also has a test point that you can use to meter your voltage and calculate the power of your transmitter.  A nice, basic project that will be useful for years to come.
