First Strike meters comparison chart update
8/17/13 - Added the new advanced FS1-SE to our comparison chart.
If you are considering a clone meter, don't let the sellers tell
you it is the same as the First Strike meters. Ask them if it has
DiSEqC switching and 20 volt LNBF supply voltage, or any of the other
advanced features that they DO NOT have. The copy folks will tell
you their meters are the orginal or their meters are the same as the
First Strike Meters. Don't believe it. They can not compare
with First Strike meters, the original and genuine manufacture.
