Holy cow do these guys build good stuff!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This thing is fantastic. Palstar really knows how to build quality stuff. I had a MFJ dummy load previously, and in same price category, but the Palstar is light years ahead in design and quality. I already own an AT4K tuner, and it's the perfect companion to that magnificient tuner. If you need a dummy this one, you won't regret it!

Super piece of ham gear  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
After speaking to ICOM technical support, I was informed of the importance of using a dummy load. After speaking to several hams, I purchase the DL2K. So far, it has been a solid part of my radio desk. The meter seems to be accurate to within a few whats of my ICOM-7700. There has been much mention of the fan noise. Not having an amplifier, the themostat controlled fan has never switched on... and I did check to make sure it does work. In fact, I have not felt any heat to speak of radiating from the unit. You can pump 200 watts into it all day long without any reservation.

It is a solid piece of equipment just like the other PALSTAR products. It sits side by side my matching AT2K tuner.

Very Good Quality  Time owned: more than 12 months
This dummy load works as it should. The switch for the fan is on the front unlike the older version. The meter seems very accurate. Please note this is not a pep watt meter.The fan is on the loud side but seems to keep the dummy load cool under long key ups. This is a nice addition to any shack. As with other Palstar products, you get what you pay for.
