One of my recent projects was a WM-2 watt meter from Oak Hills Research.

The WM-2 is a solid piece of test equipment with 5% accuracy and three power ranges: 5W, 1W, and 100 mW. I have a couple of small QRP transceiver projects in mind for the winter and the WM-2 seems like it will be a useful addition to my test bench.

Evaluation: The components in the kit are very nice quality. The meter movement and quality of the dial face are very nice. The instructions, while thorough could benefit from a couple of actual pictures vs. drawings in a few places but all in all if you pay attention to the instructions you'll end up with a working instrument right from the start.

Congratulations. I also built one of these little gems. It is one of my favorite QRP accessories!
