Swr meter kits?

Post by bc73 » 07 Nov 2016, 22:01

Hi All,
Anyone know of any kits that are available for an HF swr meter?
I have seen the GO4LO one on Sotabeams page but would like one with an actual meter.

Don't know where you can buy kits but they're easy enough to build from scratch, Plenty info online, See the link below.

As bc73 said, I didn't know there was such a thing, I thought that they were a diode and a couple of resistors, 95% of the cost being the meter and case.
