Default Re: MFJ Dummyload faulty?

Bird stuff that works is expensive. I’m using a microset CF300 with a homebrew W7ZOI power meter and tap. The microset has flat VSWR to about 700MHz as it uses flanged RF resistors not those horrid carbon poles with a horrid tempco.

When I got into amateur radio I bought a diamond antenna “100W for ten seconds” load. It lasted two seconds at 100W then proceeded to emit smoke and now measures at 58 ohms. Thus you get what you pay for.
