Old post but I would like to clarify. This is simply not true! A Dosy meter uses a broad band toroid pick up. From 3Mhz to 29Mhz I personally know a Dosy is pretty darn good for what is was designed for! It is very close in reading exactly what my Daiwa CN-620B does on RMS and if I put a carrier into it on peak it still agrees with my Daiwa. On the flip side most other CB meters that don't use a broad band toroid pick up will suffer from inaccuracies just a Mhz or two away from where calibrated. A prime example of a poor meter to use for bands below 27Mhz would be a PDC600, those are terrible!
Dosy is a perfectly acceptable meter for HF use!
Don't take my word for it check for yourself with an unmolested sample and you will agree!

Ok here's the facts to back my claims straight from the manufacturer, not a stores claims.
Frequency range per manufacturer is right at the top.
