Unbelieveable performance, sophisticated design, unheard of features. Simply the best!

Everything you need for critical station monitoring, tuning and protection on one screen. No other meter has dual bargraphs, OR a graphic display with solid bargraphs, OR bargraph with 90 bars for fine tuning of Power and SWR, OR an SWR alarm with snooze mode, OR a “sticky” bar for graphic peak hold indication… let alone having them all on one screen! This is by far the best display for tuning a manual tuner, without having to change display mode for normal operation. It is also the only meter with 11 bands of frequency indexed NIST traceable calibration points using a built-in frequency counter.
Plus, the LP-100A has additional modes no other wattmeter has when you desire them... vector impedance, dBm/RL, calibrated field strength and compression ratio.
NEW! Dual Coupler Option Two couplers… one LP-100A… auto-sensing… perfect for SO2R. Better than “paralleled” couplers because the couplers are isolated from each other, and each has its own Calibration table.
A truly unique and innovative design. We didn’t just stick a digital display on an old fashioned design. Compare to any meter at any price! There is nothing else like the LP-100A on the market. Please take the time to read this entire page (and links, including the extensive manual) for a summary of features and performance data of this station monitoring and antenna measurement system.
The graphic VFD display used in the LP-100A is the highest quality display used in a digital wattmeter. It is manufactured in Japan by Noritake, the inventor of VFD, at their own facilities… not in China. In almost 4 years of production of the LP-100A, we have not had a single display failure, or even a report of wear. The quality and reliability of the display, combined with unique screen saver options, adds up to a lifetime of enjoyment. *
We think you’ll agree… the LP-100A is in a class by itself.
* Display note for original LP-100 (not “A”) owners: We have an inexpensive upgrade path to the LP-100A GVFD display (which includes LP-100A firmware and features) for owners of the original LP-100. In addition, we offer a very inexpensive OLED display for original LP-100 owners who have experienced failure of their PLED display. The new OLED display can be ordered in green or yellow and is a drop-in replacement. It offers a quick and inexpensive way for owners of the original LP-100 to extend the life of the meter indefinitely, without changing the look or feel of the meter.
Standard coupler is LPC1, 3KW PEP/CW**, 1.8 to 54 MHz.
Optional couplers for ham use include…
LPC2 0.10W to 5KW CCS*, 1.8 to 30 MHz
LPC4 0.10W to 5KW PEP/CW**, 1.8 to 54 MHz
LPC5 0.20W to 10KW PEP/CW**, 1.8 to 30 MHz
* CCS refers to continuous duty (key down).
** PEP/CW refers to 50% duty cycle typical of most ham modes.
