SWR Meters for low power VHF use KC1ABR on 20/8/13
I was wondering if anyone has had success with an SWR meter using a VHF 5W handheld radio as the source? I want to do some work with a portable 3 element Yagi antenna hooked up to my Yaesu VX-170.

On all of the many product reviews I've read, meters tend to be very inaccurate at less than 20 watts.

Any ideas on what product I could use to assess how the radio/antenna system responds to changes would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Dave
