LDG DM7800 Meter

The LDG DM7800 dual meter is a perfect addition to your Icom IC-7800. Icom did a pretty good job on the make-believe LCD meters, but sometimes nothing but a real, live meter will do. LDG’s DM-7800 dual meter system provides two 4.5 inch meters, one for the Main receiver and one for the Sub. The lush meter faces are LED back-illuminated in cool, high-visibility blue, drawing only 20 – 60 ma (depending on brightness setting) with a brightness control on the rear panel.

There are separate calibration adjustments for Main and Sub accessible from the rear panel of the DM-7800. You do not have to take the meter apart to calibrate. A provided cable connects to your rig, and the radio menu lets you select functions for each meter. What’s more, the DM-7800 and the virtual meters on your radio can work together. For example, you can display SWR on the radio’s meter and power output on the DM-7800. On receive, the S-meter reading is shown. The DM-7800 is 9.7 x 4 x 4 inches, and requires power only for the lights; the meters themselves are passive. The case is textured black, a great match for the IC-7800.
