great meter  Time owned: more than 12 months
i have had several of these and gotten rid of them in some kind of trade deal. I got a nice one now with led's in it its a very good meter heavy duty not junk. If you find one buy it

Toe to toe with the best !  Time owned: more than 12 months
Looked for quite a while to find this meter....In "New" condition...amazed with its quality....accurate....easy to read....a must for any serious radio amateur station....Looking for another....found nothing so far in good shape...but they are out most things of this quality....very few of them are bought and sold unless its an estate situation....anyone who has one keeps them till they can no longer operate their station....Can't imagine anyone being unsatisfied with this meter....

I like the PEP feature  Time owned: more than 12 months
Great! I bought mine new in 1982. The Knob on the shaft uses little set screws to keep it tightly in position and I need to adjust it and tighten them otherwise no problems with this meter.

Fantastic Quality  Time owned: more than 12 months
I was going to get a to get a Daiwa. Last minute I found a mint condition YS-2000. Paid $100 for it. This is really in the Bird category, not the Daiwa. Not only Bird, but the old Bird stuff as I am told the new Bird meters are maon in China. Getting harder and harder to find the old stuff in nice condition.

Great ole meter  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have owned 2 of these, the first I sold and don't know why and the replacement which will be sold when I am a SK. Great meter looks 70ish but the performance is second to none! If you find one in good condition buy it, it is also easily adjusted with the pots inside if it ever needs to be calibrated. I wish anyone could build a meter this good and friendly to use. Way to go Yaesu...

A1 service  Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought my YS-2000 in 1982 & it is still working as new. I also own a Swan WM-2000A that is just like the Yaesu except it is black, I also own a Siltronix, all identical. I don't know if there are other brands out there made by this company, but they are darn good meters & worth hanging on to. As I always say " you can't have too many radios " and that goes for meters also. If you get a chance to pick up one of the meters I mentioned, don't hesitate, they will serve you well.

Top of the Line Meter  Time owned: months
It just do what is suppose to do, well constructed, heavy thick walls and solid. Just a nice piece of equipment all around. Do not hesitate to buy one.

Great PEP Meter  Time owned: months
I had one of these but I foolishly swapped it for another piece of gear.
I checked it out compared to a Bird Thu-line and it was very good, right up to 1500watts.
If you can find one of these I would recommend that you buy it!
