Re: Output power
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I have a 5 watt dummy load consisting of 5-1 watt carbon resistors, gold band, soldered into a PL-259 connector circa 1970's. It was given to me from an elderly ham, now SK. He learned I was starting the hobby with a QRP kit built HW-9. He told me he tried QRP once but it was too difficult making contacts. Thought I would like the low power heater. I do.

Thank you all for the replies. Unfortunately my idea on paper does not look like it’s going to work out based on my experiments last night. My idea was that I have a cb type swr meter and I was going to make it into a digital swr and power meter and well being that it’s not for Hf the output voltage of the meter didn’t line up with output power. .6v on 80, 1v on 40 and 30 and 1.5v on 20. So oh well on that one. I have Arduinos all over the place so using a mega for this is not a loss for me. I almost use them as coasters at this point. I would see a deal on them and get them over the last few years and as far as time goes I always try to make time for my hobbies because life is short right :).
