    the Bird thruline is not unlike other meters in the way they read and what components they use, as a matter of fact the Bird uses much less components than most SWR meters, the difference is in the Bird Architecture, with a straight line section and directional coupling circuit that rotates. Its higher cost is due to its materials, calibration and ratings allowing them to be suitable for use at higher power levels. Other wise the fundamental detection circuit design is very generic. Lay off the high horse and get some education rather than criticising without basis.

    BTW, the Dosy professional architecture is what makes these meters so maintainable and with a professional feel to them in the switchgear and movement quality, and dial printing, so much so that those in the know still buy used ones up ones on the bay, some over 20 years old. The textbook architecture i have not looked at yet, but I am guessing that they are not built to the same modularity as the single meter models such as the TC4001/2, et. al.

    I was looking for a manual online but haven't found one yet for the Aries HP-5000. The SSB switch is with the Avg/Pk/Ssb switch so I don't think its for ssb modulation. Does anyone know what the difference would be from peak to ssb?
