Nice addition  Time owned: more than 12 months
I use it to monitor the ALC on the FT-857D display while checking the output power on the external meter during digimodes. I would give it a 5 if it would have a scale illumination.

Easy to read  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
For the price, it is easy to read. Out of the box you need to set full scale, mine wouldn't zero, so I'll need to remove the plastic face and mechanically adjust it since the front zero set did not have enough range to get the meter to zero. Perhaps the trip from overseas has something to do with that.
