A compact SWR/PWR meter good for permanent connection.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
When I am considering a SWR meter for my dual band radio, people recommend the SX400/600 to me. However, I find them quite expensive and bulky for my desktop. I discovered this model accidentally and bought it at last for the permanent connection to my FT-8800R.

Specifications:

Freq Range:140~150MHz/430~450MHz
Power Range:15W (Low) / 60W (Hi)
SWR Range:0.1W~60W
Loss: Less than 0.3dB
Measurement: SWR and Power
Plug: M-BR
Dimension: 64W 75H 31Dmm
Weight: 200g

This SWR/PWR meter is small and easy to operate. I can use it to monitor the SWR value easily when I talk in different bands. Also, I can use it to adjust the TX power value in the alignment mode.

People said that the loss is greater than that of SX400/600. However, if you need a small SWR/PWR meter for dual band operation with TX power less than 1W/4W, this is the solution for you.
