    I am looking for a SWR/Power/Modulation meter, can you recommend one? I am running a dual antenna setup (I know it isn't 8.5' apart ) and my SWR on all channels is almost 1, something is reading wrong. The factory SWR meter on my Galaxy must be messed up.

    Kewl. I think Astatic make the best meters on the market. I had a set of "Workman" but they never were as accuret as the Astatic. Dosy are nice, but usely cost more.

    I was surprised at the price. 3 nice gauges, several knobs and such for only $89.

    [/ QUOTE ]Astatic is pretty fair on thier price. I think they're a high quality unit too. That's the unit I run on my base. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Is the talk-back on my Galaxy 959 a true representation of the modulation and sound quality? example: Say I was peaking and tweaking and tuned too high and started distorting the audio being transmitted, would I hear that on the talk-back or only on another radio say 1 mile away?
