The an/urr R1051 does not have a signal meter. It has level meters for
audio.
Those navy radios. I guess they figured the radio guys could not figure out
signal strength. Come to think of it as I recall they could not figure out
ships antennas either.
That said I would give WWV a solid S5-S9 little QSB right now. Very
comfortable. I am using a multi-band beam at 90' on top of a very tall hill.
