S-Meter (Signal strength meter)

S-Meter Moving coil meters have been used to indicate signal strength since the early days of radio communications. Many multi band receivers have a signal strength meter to give it a professional touch.

Cheap sets have simple instruments with, for example, a 0 - 5 scale, more expensive receivers come with an instrument displaying S-units and sometimes, these instruments are even calibrated. Only with calibrated S meter, the field strength readings are usable. Many S-meters on domestic sets react much too quickly and give a false impression of the signal strength.
