Very useful accessory Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
This has been a great addition to the shack. I like being able to see all of the KPA500 parameters at a glance. My amplifier is off to the left side of the desk. I have the KV5J DDU near my monitor. Easy to see. Fairly priced, great product.

Outstanding Product Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
KV5J's NEW Digital Display Unit for the Elecraft KPA500 Amplifier is excellent addition to the KPA500. While the KPA500 provides the same information, the operator must press buttons to bring up specific information on the KPA500's small display....or have the KPA500 Utility displayed on a PC monitor. The significant advantage of the Digital Display Unit is the SIMULTANEOUS display of all the key amplifier parameters. Given the relatively small size and remote capability (10 feet), the DDU may be located in direct view of the operating position. The display is bright and is "plug and play". Hook up power and plug in the supplied cable from the KPA500 to the DDU and you are done. Great product.

Quality product, solved problem Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
My KPA500 sits on a shelf under my desk. I could not see the amplifier's vital readings. This remote digital LCD display solved that problem. It looks terrific and works great. The unit was shipped quickly via USPS and packed extremely well. Keith KV5J answered my emails immediately. Very happy with this unit!
