HP-5000 ACTIVE SWR/POW/MOD meter

Post by Radio1cb » Wednesday, 09 April 2008, 0:12 AM

DOES ANY ONE KNOW WHERE I CAN BUY EITHER A NEW HP-5000 METER OR PARTS FOR ONE?

nowadays decent high power swr,watts,mod meters with separate meters are no longer made or at least it would seem.

Maybe im just not looking in the right places but ill be dammed if i can find an hp-5000 or other similar meter that is not a piece of junk the Astatics and dosys are OK as long as you dont really need to know what your swr is and you never use less than 50 watts. Im really not sure if the hp-5000 is any better but it seems like it was the only other choice.

Either i have to find a hp-5000 or better meter or im just going to have to manufacture my own at least then it wont be a made in china item.

Please advise

You've seen the digital meter that Redman sells, right?

that certainly is an interesting meter but not what I'm looking for. I'm really thinking about manufacturing a knockoff of the HP-5000 since it seems everyone wants one and they are no longer made

I know of a place that advertises it, but I don't know if it's still available. Since they are not a sponsor I won't post a link, but if you contact me at toys_in_the_attic@hotmail.com I will tell you where to look. Put reference to the meter in the subject line so I know what it's about or it may get sent to the junk folder... :wink:

Have you tried contacting Agilent Technology 800 829-4444 or 408-345-8886, they should send you in the right direction for parts and support.

Are you hell-bent on that particular meter only? Reconsider Bird, MFJ or Yaesu for accuracy AND availability.

HP5000 is a pretty darn good meter, better than Astatic. I got one off e bay for around $100 brand new, just keep looking.
