Default Re: MFJ Dummyload faulty?

Anything that works properly in this field is expensive.

Bird stuff is OK, but not precision. The measurement grade stuff from Weinschel, Narda, etc is even dearer.

I use attenuators rather than loads so I have an output for a spectrum analyser, or a precision power meter.

For something to check a transmitter is working, 60 Ohms will do, but it's disappointing. I'd suspect damage.
