Excellent Meter!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
A short while ago, after advertising on a UK site, I was lucky enough to get a DAIWA NS-660P in immaculate condition, I'd been looking for one for a long time. This is the 660P version with 3 power settings: 15w, 150w & 1.5kw. It is an active power meter & has 3 selections: AVG,NORMAL PEP & PEP HOLD. The most useful function is PEP HOLD to give a true reading of your output power on SSB. The meter is well built & very accurate. If you find one, buy it, you will not be disappointed.

Excellent  Time owned: more than 12 months
This is a fantastic meter

It has a peak hold setting that measures ssb pep very well

To see this meter in action someone has posted a video here

This video gives a good idea why you need a powered pep hold function to measure ssb

A permanent fixture in my shack, hard to find, if you do come across one then buy it, as it will serve you a lifetime and you will not need anything else

The Daiwa 660 looks good in any shack and is certainly a keeper.

GREAT  Time owned: more than 12 months
The 660pa was my 1st meter and still is my favorite after 10+ years.
Found a 2nd one hit by lighting, replaced some caps/resistor and the IC and all is good but the REFLECTED needle is open. Anyone got a spare?

Great meter, love the optional RF inline sensors.

Still very good  Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought the Daiwa NS-660P in 1988. All my other stuff from that time has been sold, but the NS-660P did stay and is still doing a very good job.

In the meantime I bought two sensors for it; the U-66V and the U-66S2. They too are of excellent quality.

It is a very reliable and accurate SWR/Power-meter.

No problems at all. Recommended in every way!

So Far - So Good  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Purchased one used at the Indy hamfest this summer. Seller was supposed to send a copy of manual/paperwork but he never did (shame shame) but in any case, a fine fellow ham in florida was kind enough to send me copy for the records and the meter seems to work well. Had to calibrate a bit but all is well now. Very sturdy meter but light could be a bit better. For the price I paid, I am very happy.

Very good meter  Time owned: more than 12 months
Bought the Daiwa 660-pa new at Dayton in 1993.
It is accurate and has average, pep normal and a pep peak hold function. Have not had any problems.
It has found a permanent place in my shack.

Great meter  Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought this used at a ham fest in 1993 and have not looked back. It is accurate and looks good. It has an average setting along with normal & hold for pep readings. It handles 30w, 300w and 3kw. If you need a good meter and find one of these used buy it.
