W1FEH is correct JUNK!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Mine was just like his screws srtipped, cold solder joints and connecttions to antenna connectors broken. Poorly designed and even more poorly constructed. If soemone offers you one of these for free, back away slowly and then run as soon as you think it's safe.

Its all relative....  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have had one for over a year now. Seems to work ok, I don't think its accurate for power readings, but I do think it works for SWR on 2/440. But I kinda just use it for tuning to the lowest setting I can get, and don't really read the meter face....reads low on all power settings on ALL my radios.....But, I only gave $15 for it so...........

JUNK!  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I purchased this new from a dealer at the Orlando Hamcation. Big mistake! First the screw holes that hold the SO-239's were stripped so had to add new hardware to keep it together. The soldering is garbage inside. When I used it it would work on 2m but gave wild readings on 440 unless I tweeked the pot inside the unit. I was using it tonight to check the SWR on 440 with 35W it smoked. Now all it does is foward power on 2m. Funny, 35W smokes a unit rated for 150W. If I could find an address to send it to I would with a nice letter.
