After receiving some good tips about the coupling of a 5W slug being too tight to convert to a 1KW slug with just a resistor change, I've decided to move the pickup further from the transmission line. After a little experimenting this seems to work. I only need it to be accurate on 50MHz, so if I screw up the bandwdith it will not really matter.

Google a QST slug calibration article from a few years ago.


Quoting Paul Baldock <>:

I have a 5W 50-125MHz slug. Can I turn it into a 1KW slug by adding
a suitable series resistor?
