50Ω dummy load for testing ham radio transmitters built into a quart paint can. When complete it will be filled with mineral oil to help dissipate the heat.
My mistake was in following the directions! My beautifully soldered resistor network didn't fit in the can. Crimping them made it small enough to fit through the opening.
Next step will to build a nano powered power meter that will plug into to banana jacks.
