Precise ultra-fast, Dynamic Peak Reading Instruments

This is the only product on the market that integrates a powerful antenna analyzer and instrument grade peak reading wattmeter in a single instrument.


This product combines a high-performance directional coupler, and ultra-fast peak reading detector; with an optional, powerful antenna analyzer. A standard RigExpert AA-30 analyzer, embedded in the watt meter; the analyzer works seamlessly with the open source AntScope software.

The W-2K series watt meter(s), contains everything necessary to connect to a PC through the USB port; to perform all the usual antenna measurements. The AntScope2 software supports Windows PC & Mac. An optional version/application works with Android phones.

  • Peak/Average meter function. Ultra-fast, peak sample and variable hold/hang-time instrument.

  • The detached directional coupler, is remoted via the provided 3’ CAT5 shielded sensor cable; optional longer cables available.

  • A safety lockout feature, prevents the analyzer from being damaged while transmitting.

  • The W-2KW is a rugged, military grade multi-function watt meter, intended for fixed, portable & mobile/marine HF communications requirements.

  • The W-2KW is a multipurpose, RF power and SWR meter, utilizing remote directional coupler(s). Two remote sensors can be attached (HF & VHF). Optional sensors with different power and frequency ranges are available. The sensors use standard CAT5 shielded cables, with optional lengths.

Amplifier Key-line Controller & SWR Alarm 

  • The W-2KW is able to generate an alarm at high SWR’s. Additionally, it provides a fully-isolated amplifier keying feature that will cause the amp’s key-line to be broken, preventing potential damage to the equipment. The Tactical Radio Gear, Corp., Watt Meters, eliminates the speculation of RF power and SWR measurements. 

  • Designed to military standards, the W-2KW, meets the needs for a rugged, accurate, and reliable RF power monitor for HF radios and antenna systems.


  • The Tactical Radio Gear, Corp., Watt Meter(s) provide the essential information to monitor transceiver & amplifier performance.  With three power ranges (20W/200W/2000W), the W-2KW can satisfy both low and high-power operations; with Precise ultra-fast, Dynamic Peak Reading Instrumentation..

Directional Coupler Remote Sensors. RF sensor(s) can be located near the radio/amplifier output, to ease the difficulty of the larger size of coax force on the equipment!

Up to two sensors can be attached to the W-2K series watt meter(s); to monitor different power ranges and frequencies. The sensors all use standard CAT5 shielded cables.

The W-2KW measures and displays both SWR, forward power up to 2,000 watts, and reflected power simultaneously, on a dual movement meter. The backlit meter can display average or peak power readings, with a peak/hold hang-time feature.  Accuracy of the readings is guaranteed with the CAT5 shielded cable, directional coupler.  

Active Dynamic Peak Reading Precise ultra-fast, Instrument, is one of the new generation of watt meter(s) designs from Tactical Radio Gear, Corp. All of these features are integrated into the W-2K series of Watt Meters, with adjustable three-second peak/hang-time display feature. 

All Tactical Radio Gear Corp enclosures are fabricated from 1/8” (0.125”) aluminum and treated with a gold Alodine finish.
Optional color: is the DuraCoat, firearm, flat Tactical Desert Beige & Tangodown Dark Earth.  

Standard color:  is DuraCoat three tone Collins gray.
