Supurb little meter  Time owned: more than 12 months
Yaesu hit the mark with this little meter for VHF and UHF. I have had my meter in line for over a year now and that is where it is going to stay.
I use the meter for FM and SSB and it is right on the money. I compared the meter to my Coxial Dynamics meter and there is not a watt worth of difference between the two. The meter is not back lit but I can live with that.
I hated to see Yaesu get out of the meter market because it is hard to find a better meter in todays market for this kind of money. If you see one at a hamfest or on line do not hesitate to jump on it. You will be glad you did.
