This is a straightforward dummy load, handy for those cases where you need to test at low power without radiating a signal.
It's well made, and fits nicely on an SO-329. I can't say I really stress tested it, but it didn't overheat with moderate power, and the RigExpert sees it as 50 Ohms.
One caveat - if you use a barrel connector to mate it with, say, the PL-259 end of a cable, it can be tricky to get it off the barrel when you're done.
