Re: More pins for the Raduino! An RF gain control for the uBITX!

Yep, but just for fun try nine 470 ohm resistors and one 1.2 K ohm resistors in parallel. All should be 1 watt or better.

Thank you Thomas,

just to be sure, 
using 5 pieces a 250 Ohm 2W composite resistors in parallell,
will make a 50 Ohm 10W dummy load. Right?
