Really good meter Time Owned: more than 12 months.
I buy it brand new in 2020.year as a back up meter.
My main meters are Daiwa CN 501H2 for HF/50Mhz which works excellent and Daiwa CN 103L for VHF/UHF.

I test it with simple dualbander Kenwood TM-G707 radio and using the power settings which mention in Kenwood manual say for Low/Mid/Hi power, the Diamond readings are preety much correct for 5W/10W and 50W.

It is very handy and you can use it as reliable meter for portable and fixed operations. The fact that is Made in Japan will also give you piece of mind.
Good job Diamond!

A compact SWR/PWR meter good for permanent connection. Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
When I am considering a SWR meter for my dual band radio, people recommend the SX400/600 to me. However, I find them quite expensive and bulky for my desktop. I discovered this model accidentally and bought it at last for the permanent connection to my FT-8800R.


Freq Range:140~150MHz/430~450MHz
Power Range:15W (Low) / 60W (Hi)
SWR Range:0.1W~60W
Loss: Less than 0.3dB
Measurement: SWR and Power
Plug: M-BR
Dimension: 64W ¡Ñ 75H ¡Ñ 31Dmm
Weight: 200g

This SWR/PWR meter is small and easy to operate. I can use it to monitor the SWR value easily when I talk in different bands. Also, I can use it to adjust the TX power value in the alignment mode.

People said that the loss is greater than that of SX400/600. However, if you need a small SWR/PWR meter for dual band operation with TX power less than 1W/4W, this is the solution for you.
