Power meter, min 1kw wanted-SORTED


As title, I am looking for a power meter and it needs to be capable of 1000w min.
WHY?
Or any recommendations on which one to look for (or which to avoid!)
Thanks
Al

Top end are more than the linear!

Bottom end for big jobies is Zetagi, leave them alone, dont even think about a fifty quid Zetagi.

Best mid range option is MFJ, people slate 'em, but I've used them for years and they're good to go.

Go for a MFJ, if your pockets are deeper then Palstar, keep an eye on ebay, I missed a good Palstar for £160! usually sell for £300.

MFJ will set you back £150-200 ish emoticon

This is big kit emoticon

But I would hang out for an ATU, keeping looking, ebay is a bit expensive nowdays, try a wanted ad o n hamradio deals or TM1 emoticon

BTW mine is MFJ-962D its old(ish) but works perfect, no worries emoticon Paid £110 for it emoticon

Thanks Dave, will have a look around for something that is suitable, not in a rush so for now its unplugged for safety.
Glad I asked!
