The biggest heat sink you ever did see!

Often times there is a "free pile" of interesting junk goodies at the SBMS meetings. This thing WAS the free pile!! Its a heavy sucker. Thats an 18" ruler BTW.

Its some sort of Spectrian RF amplifier. It says "Bad" and "Scrap" all over it. I'll harvest parts off the boards, and I've been thinking of building a power supply testing load with some monster FETS. Or, a dry, convection-cooled dummy load perhaps? Or maybe an all new RF amp, I've got lots of prospective devices.
