Long live the DV27.
A very underestimated aerial in my opinion (and my first aerial on a tin).

A dummy load is one thing on my list of stuff to get.
I never go up from the 555 well not often so i wanted it a bit lower.
Don't think the 1/2 wave has the same band-width the 5/8 wave has but it will do for me Tommy rock on.

Alan,

Martin's suggestion is an ingenious one and I've never seen it before, however there are more elegant solutions to building RF Dummy loads.

I've put a post up here :-

RF Dummy Load


Hope that helps Smile

I made a big oil filled one years ago but never seen the salt water one before.
Don't really need one but i will get something sorted out.
Thanks Martin/Victor.
