From what I've read it can be used to measure swr for antenna tuning. Anyone have experience with it?
It's a true peak reading power/SWR meter. Nice piece of equipment, 'specially for $50. But make sure you realize that the YS-60 is for HF, 1.6MHz to 60MHz. The YS-500 covers VHF and UHF, 140 MHz up to 525MHz. This one would work for CB stuff, as well as 160m to 6m ham.
