|Well, I took the plunge and brought one.|
I would have gotton the 868 model, but none available here in UK.
The meter is HUGE....I mean, 7" diagonal....great, clear graphics, easy to read!
Let down by the rather dim pair of small bulbs....I replaced these with 3 bright white LEDS....really good....MFJ should fit these as standard.
It seems quite accurate with the instruments and Rigs I have. I am satisfied with the accuracy.
The average power setting does not seem to work on SSB, unless you scream, or give a constant carrier....maybe that's normal for this type of meter.
On the Peak position it will hold at just over 100 watts ( with a 100 watt rig, of course )
The peak hold is one two or three second selectable.
Don't see why anyone would need 2 or 3 second delay.
One second is fine, half second would be better, but isn't available.
I have grown to like it quite a lot....maybe a bit overpriced, as the cabinet quality is rather low. Mine came with a small black mark on the top, looks like marker pen maybe.
Overall it's what I expected...I like it, you may see it differently.
