THE 50 ohm DUMMY LOAD

An easy and useful project for any shack:

dummy load
Made from two sheets of single sided copper board,  copper  facing to the outside.

Uses 20 X 1000 ohm, 1 watt resistors and two  panel mount connectors of your choice.
You get bonus marks for neatness! (hint... place a piece of perf board over the copper and poke pencil marks through the holes to lay out the resistor spacing)


The side view:    Note that the center conductor of each connector
                            goes right through to the bottom of the board,
                            same as the resistors.
