    It's a calculated guess as to what you expect the impedance to be. It's sort of a contraction of impending impedance. :whistle:

    Hey that's what they should do with that gushing oil well in the Gulf of America, just dump a bunch of fresh water on it and maybe it will disappear. Not likely huh?:whistle:

    Hey Radio Tech, I'm seeing the broken image icon for your pictures. Is anyone else seeing this?

    Well, I built the salt water dummy load and was wondering how many watts can it handle?

    Depends on a few things: amount of water, surface area of the enclosure, circulating air -- things like that. Increase the power until it starts to boil. Then back off.
