The peak reading kit is still sold for the Bird 43 wattmeter (RF Parts for
example) and the kit works well on AM. It has one quirk however, and that
is if you are sweeping your transmitter with an audio generator, a scope and
the PEP meter, you will find that the Bird 43 stops showing actual PEP when
the audio goes above 3 kHz. By the time you get to 5 kHz the PEP and
average readings are the same.
As a forgetful person, many times I would forget to shut it off and
eventually would have to replace the two 9 volt batteries. I finally
replaced the two batteries with back to back wall worts. I keep it on all
the time and it works FB OM.
