        Comments about RadioShack CB/High-Frequency Ham Power SWR Meter:

        I've burned through a few CB radios in my time and decided to check the SWR on my latest CB. It was surprisingly easy to use, I had to purchase a 3' patch cable separately. My antenna was measured within spec's, so no more guessing.

                        This SWR meter was pretty great. I'm super amature about CB's and put one in my SUV. Had a friend tell me to keep an eye on my SWR or i would fry something, cant remember. well anyway, bought this one from radio shack, and actually installed it inline from radio in my dash for everyday use. Worked really good for me, instructions super easy to follow, and analog guage is surprisingly easy to read. the only bad part is you have to buy a coax cable, to go between the meter and your radio, seperately.

                        We have been in Ham Radio for over 50 years. For the price it was a bargain and works up to par with all the expensive meters on the market.

                        We bought this meter to monitor our transmission line between our antenna tuner and antenna. We knew what the tuner was doing, but needed a swr/power meter to know what the line was like after the tuner. It was a success!

                        Comments about RadioShack CB/High-Frequency Ham Power SWR Meter:

                        Nice cheap meter. I keep it inline to make sure the built-in SWR/power display on the 897D is behaving. I also use it to watch SWR and power at the same time. My only gripe is that its too light...I added weights to the bottom to keep it from tipping up while connected. I also accept the fact that it didn't come with "jumpers"...because its already inexpensive.
