The Bird model 423078-2 single port line section is the "sampling" unit used to insert in the coaxial line (uses "quick connect" connectors of appropriate type on each end to accept coax line), sending the DC voltage to the remotely mounted meter to provide accurate power measurements. This line section is the same type used in the popular Bird model 43 wattmeter. Accessories and connectors / adapters for this section sold separately on this page.

Genuine Bird Electronics Corp. Replacement Meters

Bird Part # 2120.015T

For wattmeters requiring 20 microamp meter movements. Scale reads 500/150/50/15/5 watts full scale. This meter will not read correctly if used with elements designed for use with the more standard 30 microamp meter movements.

Stock No. BIRD-MTR-01
$59 each

Bird Part # 20023

Replacement meter for the famous Bird model 43 wattmeter.

Important: These meters are the standard 30 microamp full scale movement, but the scale is different - 15/60/2.5 scales, which were made for the F.A.A. (Federal Aviation Administration) - and not the more standard 25/50/100 scale, common in civilian versions. These meters are sealed and the scales cannot be changed.

These meters will read accurately with elements that are the same as the scale, for example, with 60 watt or 2.5 watt elements, or multiples of 60, 2.5, or 15.

Stock No. BIRD-MTR-02

( Several styles available - our choice)

Genuine Bird wattmeter elements (slugs)

These elements are marked "4610" and "741".   The 4610 series elements are designed for the extra large,  high-power (up to 50 kw maximum!)  Bird line sections for use with the larger 100 microamp Bird meters.  They may also be used with the Bird panel-mounted "Wattcher" system, such as the model 3127.  These elements will NOT read accurately with the more common 30 microamp meters as used in the Bird model 43 wattmeters. These elements are 1500 watts full scale, 400-1000 Mhz.

New, old stock.
