Vintage Wattmeter For Sale:

This wattmeter is made by M.C. Jones Electronics Co. of
Bristol, Conn.  It is called a MicroMatch, Model 261.1.

It is a wattmeter that covers frequencies from .5 to 225 Mcs.
Yes, it says Mcs, and not MHz.  From the looks of it, I would
guess that it is slightly post WW II vintage.  It has the same
type of styling as General Radio, Millen, Measurements Corp, 
and similar test equipment of that era.  The case itself is gray
crinkle, with a black meter bezel.

The unit is in two parts.  There is a sensing unit that is 
similar to the pick up unit that E.F.Johnson used as a remote
pick up for the Matchboxes, except this remote pick up is
a bit larger in diameter, and about half as long.  The meter 
portion says model 262, and has 10, 100, and 1000 Watt 
scales in both forward and reverse.  It is connected by a 
cable about 3 feet long, that has a 1/4 inch plug that plugs 
into the remote pick up.

Cosmetically,  it is exceptionally good.  The paint looks very 
good.  I can not find a scratch on it. I would say that is it 
collectable quality.  
Electrically it works fine.

$60 plus shipping from Florida.
