Hi John, N4NAB

To make with easy reliable measurements of the Incident Power ,Reflected
Power and SWR from 1 watt to 250 watt at 1260  MHz  and from 1 watt to
25 watt at 2300 MHz I suggest you to buy a BIRD Thruline Model 43 RF
Directional Wattmeter with the approprate standard measuring elements
depending on your needs.
This unit is a professional instrument well know to all radio engineers and
you can move it with easy from the shack to the antennas only screwing two N
Using the appropriate measuring elements you can extend the frequency range
from 0.45 to 2300 MHz
I have two BIRD 43 since 1976 and I am very happy with them.
