What in the hell could it possibly be???

The latest assembly from Casa de Juan;

fullsizeoutput_3f28

A zap-o-matic? A high-precision random-number generator? A molecular stun-gun?

a 50-Ohm dummy load for testing transmitters up to 20w output to minimize the risk of

  1. transmitting a signal; and
  2. burning up a transmitter while not hooked up to an antenna

It’s effectively a sandwitch of small PCBs surrounding resistors along with an appropriate capcitor and diode to smooth out the signal while testing.

Yep, the soldering work still needs some improvement. Like the last project, I’m actually rather impressed that I was able to make it work as expected.

And next time, we’ll do something a bit more challenging.
