What does the Bird watt meter do? Stay at a constant 100 watts? Or drop 
the same as the Omni meter? What about reflected power indicated by the 
Bird? How about the Ic (Collector Current) on the Omni? Does it stay 
relatively constant during key down?

If the Bird reads 100W and the Omni meter reads only 25W, there is a bit 
of calibration error somewhere. Scratchy potentiometer or loose or dirty 
connector inside the Omni?
