As I’m hoping to go mobile in the near future, I thought it would be a good idea that I buy a suitable SWR meter. I wanted one that would cover both low and high frequencies. The one I went for was the Avair AV-601. I’ve only just unboxed it so once I can find or make a patch lead, I’ll be trying it out. First impressions are that it is well made with no sharp edges or cheap plastic trim. It would have been nice to have had N-Type connectors for the VHF sockets as I’ll have to use a converter. Here is a picture of the new device.
