good size meter for those that dont see so well  Time owned: more than 12 months
have one already and just bought another one on ebay. great meter for the meter size and accuracy. highly recommend this one if you can find one for a reasoable price 70 to 80 dollars is the going price most times for one that works and in good shape. most for your buck compard at what some meters go for.

Excellent Meter  Time owned: more than 12 months
Very accurate and smooth needle movement. This is how a watt meter should work. I got mine used from EBay and used it for my main rig until I got a Dentron meter. The Swan works as well as the Dentron , but the Dentron matches my equipment better for looks. I still use the Swan on my rag chewing TS-520. This meter will not do you wrong. Get one if you can, you won't be sorry.

Outstanding!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Excellent quality. Very accurate, with ACTIVE peak metering, which is nice. I also like that BIG meter movement! Easy to see with tired eyes. No need to squint, and cross the eyes to read crossed needles. Very nice overall. No negatives that I can find.

Very Good  Time owned: more than 12 months
Alto I have sold the WM-3000 I wished I had not.
Large easy to read meter. If you can find one buy it.
BTW, the Siltronix FS-600A is the same Meter but just to 1000w.

Classic!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I believe these meters were actually manufactured by Yaesu in Japan for Swan and several other brands of ham or CB gear (Siltronix). Has 4 power scales (very handy for various rigs of different power levels) and each scale is internally adjustable for calibration, but the meter reads forward or reverse (selectable) one at a time, not simultaneously as with the more modern cross-needle wattmeters.

In the peak (or "SSB" as it's labeled on the front panel) mode, the huge 5" analog meter has a smooth action, and is a pleasure to watch as you speak into your station's mic.

If you find one in good condition at a hamfest, snap it up! You'll be well pleased with this classic station accessory.
