The little antenna is for the field strength portion of the meter, the scale on the left is the power reading meter depending on which setting you have it on which is either 0-10 watt scale and the other setting is 0-100 watt scale so if you're checking a normal cb
radio you set it to forward 10 watt scale and you can read your swr (standing wave ratio) on the meter to the right.
If it's your power reading is going backwards you may have it set to reflected wattage function which indicates power radiated back into the radio which is never good.
