I run two SWR Meters...  One between the antenna and tuner, and one on the amp.  That way, if my SWR is creeping up, and the tuner is compensating, I still see the issue...

Power/SWR meter is nice to be placed after the tuner just to see how badly your antenna is matching up.

An SWR meter can be very useful for detecting other stations on 75 meters when you combine it with an EA meter.  Huh

Got it! Grin
