Daiwa CN-501H HF/VHF Bench Meters offer high quality and are value-priced. These SWR power meters will be right at home in any ham shack. Their convenient features make measurements of SWR and power during antenna testing and tuning a much easier task. You'll be able to match your transmitter or amplifier with ease!

Not very accurate Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
The meter is 20% low compared to a second meter, which has been compared to the meters in my 3 tuners.

good ,but need some work Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
already own the cn-501v for my vhf/uhf ,so to me it was a no brainer to get the h model to use on my hf station. icom 7410/7300 along with the ameritron al811h. ordered from the guys at dx engineering ,as usual..awesome. got the meter and connected it to my station. love the bright light it emits onto the meter face from the bottom. excellent.. BUT, the meter does not hit my peaks like my older yaesu meter i once owned. in fm or rtty it shows full 100 watts,but in ssb mode,the meter is always light on peaks,even with the amp,but ...knowing i can see the difference with or without the amp is a plus..this is what matters. it seems pretty accurate,but could use a little help. the meter does not need to be plugged in to work, as the light is the only reason for external power. nice overall meter.
