I just repaired (I think) a 50 amp astron rack supply.  I intend on using
it to power two hf rigs (SO2R) and accessories.  However, I wish to load it up
to about 30 amps to check ripple and regulation without sacrificing my
station if something is wrong.
Any ideas on what I could use to load it up for a test?

Thanks for all the responses. The popular solution is to use a car headlight (or two). I got a couple of those.
