Good accuracy for Ham use.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Calibration ok.
There is a small difference in meter readings between peak and average with a CW signal applied.
Times 2 and times 5 meter multiply work fine.

Love it  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Give 'em the Bird!
First, I'm surprised this unit hasn't been reviewed before. At least I couldn't find it!

Second, be aware that 'adaptor' and 'adapter' are interchangeable on a device.

This completed board is made in the USA and comes pre-adjusted. The instructions include the simple self contained calibration process.
Very easy to install. There are 5 multi-turn pots which only needed the slightest 'tweak' to calibrate my Bird.
Unlike similar units, it comes with a 'plug' to fit into the side of the 43 to hold the switches and power LED. No drilling.

I couldn't (or should I say; 'wouldn't) build one for this price.
Dead accurate.
