bad DIAMOND replica Time Owned: 3 to 6 months.
As the AVAIR SX-600 got best reviews at this site, the SX-1000 is a very bad replica.

I want to get the SWR in the 23cm band, but if you switch the powermeter switch, you can choose between 1:1,5 and 1:2!!!!
The band switch works, but if you select the SHF band (IV) you really select the HF band (I) and vice versa, a design error !!!
The light plug doesn't fit, if you compare 2 pieces, each one shows other results, if you compare it to a original DIAMOND SX-1000, you have a 3rd result!
If you look inside, you know, why! It looks like a children has assembled this meter.

In Austria, the dealer says, that my SWR meters are a bad charge, when I vistit him 3 monts later ALL!! new SX-1000 had the same errors. In Austria the brand is TELECOM, but beyond this brand, you see AVAIR.
The AVAIR website exists no more longer, even the telephone line is dead, so do not wonder about this product. DONT BUY IT!!!
