SWR meter

Post by Refugee » Sat May 25, 2013 1:25 pm

I have found one in my box of spares.
There is no way I can test it. It is very well made as can be seen. I bet there are plenty about that were awful.
It will almost certainly be from a CB base station.

It's definitely CB era... I have exactly the same one, hidden away somewhere, and like almost every other piece of kit by 'Monacor' that I've had my hands on, it was very well made :thumbr:

It is indeed too well built for me to have the heart to pull it to bits and recycle the case.
They don't fetch much at auction so perhaps the cabinet may get recycled if it looks like a kid glove fit bhbg

They can fetch a Fiver.

It's actually fairly easy to test with a 50 Ohm signal generator. Using 100 Ohm 50 Ohm short and open loads.

I will most likely keep it because it is nicely built even if I am not going to use it.
