Good Meter  Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought one at a hamfest a few years ago and it works great. It has a bigger meter than the Drake that looks similar to it.

Excellent meter  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I bought this on eBay for $65.00 plus $15 shipping for use with my Swan 700CX. I wanted a directional wattmeter, which this essentially is. The meter is large, easy to read, and it moves smoothly. The ranges are spaced in a manner that make them easy to use with the 700CX. They are: 0-5W, 0-50W, 0-500W, and 0-1500W. This meter is well-made, heavy, and appears to be accurate.
When buying HAM equipment on eBay, I set my first bid to a low amount, and then use Auctionsniper to bid - at the last second - the maximum amount I want to pay. Otherwise, newbies and "shill" bidders will drive the price up to absurd levels.
