Workman HP 202S SWR/WATT METER

Post by Nightwing » Friday, 20 March 2009, 6:22 AM

RANGE--- 10 w , 100 W , 1K.
I have been using this meter for about 4 weeks now and have found it to be EASY to use.
When the meter arrived I had to Zero the needles,I sort of expected that..
The two adjusting screws on the front of the meter made that simple..
Since the meter does not come with an internal light,I added one..
Took a light from an old ford AM radio and installed it on a switch..
As far as accurate--Don't know--Don't have anything to really test it against..
I have two other meters and the 202 seems to be in line with them..

I would give this meter a 4 out of 5----------Because I had to put in the light..
The meter face and scale ARE easy to read.What you do notice more than
anything is the swing of the needles..

Cost of the unit was 30.00$ and free shipping!!!!!!

On a whole the unit seems to be well built, no cold solder joint's
Time will tell!!

Would I purchase another Workman unit????? YES

May not be the most expensive but it does get the job done...

Sorry about this....
I should have stated that the 202S is a CROSS NEEDLE meter....

The 201 is a single needle meter
