Introducing the Avair AV-1000 VSWR Power Meter, a versatile and reliable tool designed for radio frequency enthusiasts. Whether you’re operating in HF, VHF, UHF, or 23 cm bands, this power meter is perfectly suited to meet your needs.


Featuring an elegant design that matches other models in its range, the Avair AV-1000 boasts a large and clear meter, ensuring effortless readout of your measurements. Additionally, it conveniently includes a built-in lamp that can be illuminated with an external 12V power supply, providing optimal visibility in any environment.

With just the push of a button, you can seamlessly switch between measuring average power or peak envelope power (PEP), catering to your specific preferences and requirements. It’s all about flexibility and convenience!

Let’s dive into the technical specifications, shall we? The frequency range of the AV-1000 spans from 1.8 MHz to an impressive 160 MHz, as well as 430 MHz to 1300 MHz. This wide coverage ensures you can accurately measure power across a broad spectrum.

Moreover, the power measurement range varies from 5W to 400W (AVG/PEP), allowing you to handle a comprehensive range of power levels. The impedance is set at 50 Ω, ensuring compatibility with various systems and setups.

For seamless connectivity, this power meter is equipped with SO239 and N-type sockets, catering respectively to the 1.8 – 160 MHz and 430 – 1300 MHz frequency ranges.

Precision is key, and the Avair AV-1000 delivers with impressive accuracy. In the 5W range, expect a deviation of only ± 5%; in the 20W range, ± 7.5 %; in the 200W range, ± 10 %; and in the 400W range, ± 12.5 %. Rest assured, you can trust the reliability of your measurements.

Additionally, the AV-1000 boasts minimal input loss, guaranteeing accuracy across the frequency spectrum. With only 0.2dB input loss in the 1.8 ~ 160 MHz and 140 ~ 525 MHz ranges, and 0.3dB input loss in the 430 – 1300 MHz range, you’ll experience exceptional performance.

In summary, the Avair AV-1000 VSWR Power Meter is a powerful and versatile tool that is specifically designed to meet the needs of the HF, VHF, UHF, and 23 cm bands. With its stylish design, accurate measurements, and convenient features, it is the perfect companion for radio frequency enthusiasts and professionals alike.
