Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the MFJ-251 switchable dummy load. The MFJ-251 will
simulate high and low impedance loads of 1:1, 2:1, and 3:1. These loads are useful
in testing equipment to verify proper operation or troubleshooting station problems.
Theory of Operation
The MFJ-251 uses three 50 ohm high power resistors that can be switched in or out
of the circuit to form five resistance values at the coaxial input. It does this through a
series of relays that place each of the resistors in series or parallel to create the
resistance values needed for 2:1 or 3:1 matches. The front mounted switch sends
12vdc power to the relays needed for each arrangement of the resistors. When the
unit is in the off position or power is removed from the power jack, the MFJ-251
defaults into the 50 ohm mode to become a standard dummy load.

MODEL MFJ-251
MADE IN THE USA
Use a 12 volt dc source to supply power to the MFJ-251.
Use the pig tail supplied connected to a power supply or
a wall wart such as the MFJ-1312D. The source should
be able to supply at least 500ma.

Use the lowest power setting on the transceiver when testing. Do not transmitted high
power into the dummy load when using the 2:1 or 3:1 settings. Doing this may damage
your transceiver.

This diagram shows how the MFJ-251 could be used to verify the tuning capability
of a automatic or manual antenna tuner. The MFJ-251 provides a purely resistive load
to the tuner. Use the lowest power setting (5-10 watts) on the transceiver when testing.
Do not transmitted high power into the dummy load or through the tuner when tuning.
Doing this may damage your transceiver or your tuner.
