ddutil support for elecraft w1 ?

Charlie_KB8CR Member ✭✭
I see that ddUtil has support for the Elecraft W2 watt/swr meter. I was wondering if the W1 wattmeter uses the same command structure, and would work with ddUtil.  I have a Flex 1500 which doesn't have a SWR bridge in it, and while the W2 is cost-prohibitive, I hopefully could build the W1 and have SWR monitoring.

    Yes there, used it that way for a few years. Since my amp has very good watt meter/SWR metering, I ended use of DDUtil as I had excellent amp support from Flex and SPE. The SW2 feeds data to DDUtil and is read in the DDUtil window.

    I know that it works with the W-2 wattmeter, feeding data to the DDUtil window, but I'm wondering if it will work the same with the W-1 wattmeter? (That is the mini-kit one)
