I've always wanted a small dummy load for my QRP projects. The doors of the N2ICZ vault creaked open and I purchased one of these: The QRPGuys 12, 50 ohm, Dummy Load/Power Meter. Here's the part of the sales pitch that prompted me to purchase it, "The required tools for assembly are a soldering iron with a small tip, rosin core solder, small side cutters, and can be built in less than an hour. On a difficulty scale of 1-5, 5 being the most difficult, this is rated at 1".
Yes sirree Bob... Right up my alley. And for $10.00, who can complain? I'll keep you posted on how it works out.
