Comet makes an alternative as well.

It seemed to be of considerably higher quality when I saw it at Hamcom.

I need an antenna analyzer that provides impedance information. I have the 
predecesor to the MFJ-259B, and have been disappointed in it when the frequency 
of interest is near the band overlap areas of the various range segments. Works 
great mid range in those bands, but becomes unreliable near the edges of each 
band, and the overlap is not always sufficient to give reliable readings. I am 
considering the 259B, but fear the same kind of problems. 

Is there another instrument ouit there that isdesigned for ham radio, and  not 
terribly expensive that you have experience with and feel is better than the 
259B? Your response will be apprecaited.
