Re: End Fed antennas w/ uBITX #ubitx

It's not an accident that mine is similar.
Thanks for the pointer to the cheap metal film 3W resistors a few months ago!
Mine's much uglier, just twisted the ends together, though kept the
resistors spaced far enough to allow some airflow.
In your case, that's french-fry oil-flow.

I'm using 20 of this 1k 3W part from Mouser at $0.10 each
Four of the 200 ohm 3W part in parallel would be plenty as a dummy load for the uBitx:

If somebody were to kit them up for the group along with a schottky diode RF probe,
the surface mount resistors might be easier to mail.
