Any equipment offered for disposal will have been bench/air tested, its general condition and any known faults will be mentioned. All equipment is from nonsmoking owners unless otherwise noted.

Transmitting equipment will only be sold to persons holding an appropriate Australian Licence. In the disposals process the Disposals Officer's decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

Due to the number of items reserved but never purchased a deposit is required to reserve equipment for collection. Minimum Deposit is $50 or the full sale price for items costing less than $50. Equipment is not considered sold until payment is made in full.

250W 50Ω load resistor and clamp.

These resistors were removed from surplus TV transmitter power combiners.

The specification for the resistor is 250W CW at a maximum heatsink temperature of 100ºC.

A conservative rating on a large heatsink such as an Altronics H0545 would be 150W.

For full power the heatsink would need to have a thermal resistance of less than 0.4º/W and fan cooling.

With the resistor mounted in a heatsink and with a short (3mm) connection an N connector the SWR was measured as being <1.1 at 1.3GHz

Price $10 each.

600W 50Ω load resistor and clamp set.

These resistors were removed from surplus TV transmitter power combiners.

The specification for each resistor is 250W CW at a maximum heatsink temperature of 100ºC.

Each pair of resistors consists on one resistor with a tab for one terminal and the flange for the other. The second resistor has both terminals as tabs.

Connecting these resistors in series gives 100Ω and connecting two sets of resistors in parallel then gives 50Ω.

A set mounted on a heatsink in with very short connections was then connected to an N connector with a short length of coax and measured.

The SWR was 1.3:1 at 470MHz

Note the heatsink is NOT supplied.

Price $40 each
