VHF Watt Meter HM-2102

Normal Operating Characteristics The peaks on controlled carrier modulation will “kick” the meter needle upward. Make these final adjustments carefully and precisely.

Just drop us a line hk-2102 give us a call. Now determine the additional loss caused by the SWR from Figure 5 as follows: Solder the four lugs to the foil.

Make sure the meter top is parallel with the top of the panel. Check the equipment to see that all screws and parts are secured. For this reason, assume that the highest SWR reading is most correct. Figure 5 shows the effect of increasing cable losses caused by various values of SWR.

Insert this lead into the center pin of connector B S I dont reset sensitivity each time. Input and output plugs reversed. If the meter reads higher than 1.

This prevents the transmitted frequency from affecting the wattmeter. Do not include any wooden cabinets or color television picture tubes, as these are easily damaged in shipment. Therefore, if you are using a transmission line long enough to have appreciable losses, locate the Wattmeter near the antenna, especially when adjusting beams or tuning traps.


With a low SWR, the load that the transmitter sees is practically pure resistive. New 16 pF and 17 pF capacitors will be in the line in the future and this modification may be used until the new capacitors are available.

Forward and reverse voltages are connected to the meter through switch S2, Sensitivity control R9, and Function switch S3. For warranty parts replacement, supply a copy of the invoice or sales slip.
