Preliminary Info
 

Development slowed during the summer due to other commitments, a big uptick in orders for other products, etc. We have resumed development now and plan to have the first run ready in the not-too-distant future. We have most of the parts in stock for an initial run of 50 units.
Interested parties can be added to a pre-order list by sending an email here.  People on the pre-order list will be contacted  with the option of firming up an order or canceling. The second run will follow the first with at least 100 units.

The LP-500 will only be offered assembled. Initial coupler offerings will be 3KW HF/6m, 5KW HF/6m, 5KW HF & 10KW HF couplers. A 1500W VHF coupler is in the works.

Pricing has been set at $795USD for the meter and one coupler. Additional couplers (up to 4 total) can be added for $150USD each.

The following pictures do not necessarily show the highest resolution display options for each mode.

Important notice for LP-100(A) owners... LP-500 WILL NOT replace the LP-100A. The LP-100A will continue to be our main product with some important features not provided in the LP-500. The LP-100A couplers are similar but not identical to the LP-500 couplers, and are therefore not interchangeable. The LP-500 VHF / UHF couplers will not work with the LP-100A, but a version of the VHF coupler is being developed for the LP-100A.
