|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.
