Birds and the Telewaves are not SWR bridges, they're directional wattmeters.
With that said, I'm not fan of the Telewaves. I have two of the 44A's, but
I rarely use them. The switch is a little flakey on one of the ones I have,
even though it's only maybe 5 years old. The other one is a little older,
and it has someting intermittant internally that results in it giving
different readings on sucessive key-ups.
I have several different flavors of Birds including 43's, 43P's, the digital
4391A, etc. Without fail, I always find myself grabbing one of the 43's
(call me a stubborn OF, but they just work).
The digital 4391 is nice, but as you might imagine, the battery is always
dead at the most inopportune time. I have a Bird 4410 at one of my clients'
locations, and like it for what little time I've used it.
I have Coaxial Dynamics wattmeters of various types at broadcast sites, but
generally speaking, if I'm the one doing the buying, I buy Bird.
