Damn, I already ordered a pile of HVAC gear.
j/k - yeah that was what I was basically planning, Ian ... just as a
noob, I'm not totally confident with what a single air cooled part can

The dummy loads that I have worked with for medium wave and below and from 5 kilowatts down have all been convection air cooled. Broadband dummy loads that I have used for higher powers (up to 25 kilowatts) have been forced air cooled.
