Meter Scale Software

(1/2) > >>

Greetings all:

I'd like recommendations for meter scale designing software.  Preferably FREE but will consider all.  It needs to be somewhat intuitive because my software learning curve is very convoluted.

I was hoping to find a program that was free or very inexpensive because I would use this program once in a very great while.  At the present time I would like to design a meter layout that uses Red, Yellow and Green on the scale instead of numbers or graduation bars.

Hi Al,

try this: http://www.tonnesoftware.com/meter2.html
He got an El Cheapo version for trial. It was for free on my 2013 ARRL handbook CD.

I can attest that Jim Tonne's METER program is excellent.  He has a basic version for trials, but I purchased the full program and use it far more than I had thought I would.  I think its well thought out, easy to use when you haven't used it for a while, and does an excellent job on meter faces.  Its allowed me to design circuits where I want to use a single meter for multiple applications and still have it look professional.   

I would check out his basic version at a minimum.

Thank you both for the answers to my question.

Prior to asking I did several online searches for such a program and kept coming up with Tonne's METER. 

No long ago the same question came up on a Yahoo forum I belonged to and there were several suggestions provided and since that information has been long gone I thought I'd ask here.

I'll go ahead and download the METER basic and see how it goes.  It just might be worth the $34.95 fee for the full version.

Thanks you again.
