Hi Gang,

I caught the tail end of the recent pwr/swr meter
thread, but didn't see what I've been interested
in for some time now. Specifically, I'm looking for
a TINY, accurate QRP pwr/vswr meter. Hopefully with
two ranges, 5w max deflection and 1w max deflection.
I prefer two meters displaying forward and reflected
power simultaneously. Here's the kicker, I'm
looking for something SMALL for hiking! I'm talking
something like 1" thick, 2" wide and 3" long and weighs
in the 8 oz range (w/battery). Does there exist
such a thing on the market either in kit or assembled
form, or do I have to brew my own? This sounds like
an excellent kit for some club. All those I've found
in my search thus far are MUCH bigger and heavier than
I described, all using extremely low-density PCB
construction and huge meter movements. I would
build it using very small edge-wise meter movements
and keep board components as tight as physically
possible. Comments? Suggestions?

Tnx es 72/73!
