A really good meter  Time owned: more than 12 months
Works a lot easier than crossed dials. Bulbs burn out easily but it's not worthwhile to change them. I have HF and VHF modules and both work very well. Externally mounted modules are a nuisance, though.

Nifty Meter  Time owned: more than 12 months
This meter reads PEP and Average power to 2Kw. There were sensors for HF, VHF and UHF and the meter can be connected to three seperate sensors. The sensor to use is switch selected and power can be read in two ranges, 1-200 watts and 100-2000 watts.

When checked against a Bird 43P in average mode, the SW-2000 matched the Bird. In the PEP position, the SW-2000 is a little inaccurate, always reading a little more than the Bird 43P.

In average power/SWR reading it seems to match the Bird.

I use this meter daily and rate it with the best.
