Re: Wave guide dummy load.

I have made and even published how to make loads using that IC Carbon foam.
Some of the foam is 'Static Dissipative' and does not work well as a microwave absorber.
Get out your Ohm Meter and poke the foam with the probes about 5-10 mm apart. If you read a few hundred Ohms it will work well. If it reads thousands of Ohms, it will not. Then form the foam into a wedge shape and put it in the waveguide. Kent WA5VJB/G8EMY

And the old style anti-static carbon-filled foam for IC's, would that work? Something that has crossed my mind but forgot to ask for a while now
