Boy, do I wish I still had it!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Bought it many years ago! Neat design and neater operationally. Never used it mobile but was great as base QRP meter. Dropped it last year and it shattered.

Wish someone, somewhere would make a decent QRP cross-hair manual tuner!

To bad they stopped making it  Time owned: more than 12 months
Have had two of these for mobile use since 2003 the best watt meters I have owned for mobile use.The are still the best to me in design for mobile operations. While the diamond SX20/40 are simular in size and accurcery they do not have a mounting bracket.
Crossing my fingers they do not fail.

Very rugged, compact, and accurate!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This review is for the Daiwa CN-465M, which is the 140-450MHz version of the CN-410. There are 4 meters in the CN-400 series. I am very satisfied with the performance and accuracy of this instrument. The cross-needles make reading forward power and SWR very simple, and the needles themselves are a very visible flourescent red in color. Incidentally, the meter has 2 scales, 15W and 75W. The meter is also backlit, if you choose to connect it to a 13.8 VDC source. The design is also visually and ergonomically pleasing, looking like a hybrid base and mobile meter in one!

Great little portable SWR/Power meter  Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought one in 1999 from HRO and it has worked flawlessly ever since. I use it mobile and portable as it is lightweight and does not require power(except for meter lighting which is optional).

This meter got a good review in QST (circa 2002)in comparison to the other popular SWR meters currently on the market, and is quite accurate considering the broad frequency range it spans. I use it QRP on the low power scale and it is very accurate with my FT 817.

Unfortunately, Yaesu, in its infinite marketing wisdom, discontinued production. They are still
on eBay and and swapmeets.

Grab one if you can!
