Customer Reviews

other MFJ devices have worked just fine for meThe instructions that came with the RF Power and SWR meter are grossly inadequate to resolve a setup issue. The device did not work as described in the Instruction Manual. I need to talk to someone in tech support at MFJ to decide whether it is defective or if I am not connecting it correctly. In fairness, other MFJ devices have worked just fine for me.2Brandy new 874 meter problem first useI used the meter for the first time to calibrate my antenna and the meter would not stay on the swr set position. It was very jumpy under and above the set position on the meter. It was as if there was something wrong with the set knob or the meter itself did not like that position.Stan at MFJ was useless. I was left speechless with how little help he was. I mean this the support call was like no other.Off to return to amazon for another one.1Five StarsOne of the best and easiest to use that I have found5Good meter Quick and simple, accurate tuning. Can't go wrong. Only issue I have, it does not come with radio-to-swr coax cable...AND IT SHOULD ! 5Look is Quality and works greatThe look and feel is quality and it works great! The one I received had no issues it just worked. I just built a small 3 element yagi for portable 2 meter use and used this meter to test it with, I got good repeatable information from the meter. I would highly recommend it for low power Ham or CB uses.5SWR Meter for vhf/uhf/hfI recieved this the other day a MFJ 1.8-528 Mhz SWR meter, which I have been lookin for for a long time for these frequencies, I is a very nice well built meter and well worth the money. I would recommend this one to everyone. It also checks power up to 200 watts which is a nice feature.5The analogue dial makes visualisation of trans-receiver quick and easyFront face presentation is excellent, I now find it easier to see what is happening with my Icom 7300 much easier. I also have the ability to test my 2 Meter and 20 cm Hand Held sets as well. Excellent addition to my test gear.5Four Stars Large enough display so my eyes don't have issues reading the meter. Works as advertised. 4Does the job. It does the job. Next one will have cross needles, which is easier to reed and use. 4Good meter, if there are no QC issues in the one you receive.This is a decent meter, once I fixed it. There were several loose parts inside the meter. The fixes were easy (if you're good with a soldering iron and know your way around electronics). This is, unfortunately, the case with much of what MFJ manufactures (poor quality control).3Well builtThis is a well built SWR meter. Works great for portable or mobile radio installations. The instructions were straight forward making it easy to set up and use.5Five StarsGreat meter very accurate , led light is awesome. The switch is not part of it ,I added it ,I didnt want the light on all the time5It seems to work, but I have doubts about its accuracy, and the build quality is very disappointing.Let me start by saying that this is the only SWR/ RF Power meter I know of in this price range that covers all of the Ham radio frequency bands from 160m up to a bit above the 70cm band. The meter markings are fairly easy to read, even for my 'over 50' eyes, and the controls are clearly labeled. As far as I can tell, the meter I received does work. Over the last week and a half, I have used it to check the SWR of a VHF/UHF mobile antenna, and tune the feed-point of a 2-meter Slim-Jim antenna I built from copper pipe. I am getting excellent signal reports from both antennas, so I feel confident that the SWR readings are reasonably accurate.I'm less confident about the forward and reflected power readings, but again, I have no way to verify my suspicions. Maybe my expectations are a bit high here, but given the price of these meters, it seems like MFJ should be able to make serious improvements to their build quality and still turn a decent profit. I have heard people mention that MFJ products quality can be "hit-or-miss", but the unit I received unfortunately feels a lot like a toy. It is *extremely* lightweight, and made almost entirely of plastic. The red, plastic, 2-position push-button that switches the meter between Average and Peak Envelope power readings fails to extend fully outward when set to the "Average" position, and I have to 'wiggle" it to get it to "pop' out into position about half the time. When checking SWR, it is difficult to adjust the meter to place the needle on the "CAL" mark because the needle tends to "jump" past the desired spot as you adjust the knob, no matter how carefully you move it. The 2-page "manual" doesn't cover some points that I really need to be clear on. For instance, the meter has 3 power ranges; 5, 20, and 200 Watts, but only 2 scales for SWR, HIGH and LOW. If 5W is LOW and 200W is HIGH, which scale should I use for SWR readings at the 20W power level - HIGH or LOW? Also, there is overlap in the frequencies covered by the 2 sets of antenna and transmitter connectors on the back of the meter. The connectors for the "HF" side cover from 1.8MHz to 200MHz, which includes the 144-148MHz VHF band.The connector pair for the "VHF-UHF" side cover 125-525MHz, which also includes that same VHF band. So you could use either side when working with VHF band signals. I did a quick test, and there does seem to be a significant difference in the readings provided by the 2 "sides" of the meter. So, when I'm tuning my VHF antennas, which side should I use? It seems like a no-brainer to me that MFJ should include that info, which is needed to get the best use of their product. So to sum things up, it seems that the meter works, but there are quality problems, and after using it for 10 days, I would probably choose a different meter.3
