a common way to make a WG dummy load is to insert a wedge shaped chunk of conductive foam

For a power less than 1 Watt, use a wedge made of epoxy filled with powdered iron. Wedge length should be one wavelength long approx.
If you can find a Mylar foil deposited with a resistive layer of 300-400 Ohms/square located in E-plane and tapered makes for a good load but limited to 0.1 W approx.
