The Vishay RCH50 50W film resistors sold by RS components are pretty
good value at about 2-3 pounds each, and work OK up to HF - but
obviously you need a hefty heatsink as well as the resistors.

Hello Jim / Gary.

As you say the wirewound types can give a very acceptable return loss at 136kHz and are much cheaper than a 'non inductive type' of similar power.

I have also recently used two of the RCH50 type resistors ( but 100 Ohms) in a wilkinson combiner at  100MHz. - they worked just fine.
