Homemade dummy load. Post 1835.

Here's an interesting idea for those of us who need a quick and simple RF dummy load for testing our transceivers.

According to "the250rider", materials for this easy project include (8) 100-ohm-1/2 watt-5% tolerance resistors in a series-parallel circuit immersed in a small jar with vegetable oil acting as a heat absorber.  This might suffice for QRP operations or for any other project needing only small amounts of power.
