Bird 43 with number 5E, 25E, and 50E slugs will cover GMRS nicely. -pricey though.

Do not buy Surecom SW-33 for GMRS. It's a miles off on these frequencies.

I use a Telewave 44A Broadband 20-1000 MHz as it requires no collection of slugs and measures power up to 500W.
HRO has them for $860 but you can find a lightly used one on ebay for a few 100 bucks, some may have current calibration and if your lucky the case.
I went down the Bird rout and realized the cost of slugs adds up quick and decided on the Telewave 44 was a better investment.
Just My $.02

I use the Yaesu YS-500. I just looked it up and apparently it was discontinued. It was just over $100 a few years ago. I have heard that even if low cost meters are not extremely accurate across their entire range, they are fairly decent when you are close to 1:1 SWR.
Perhaps the MFJ 873 at around $80 might be a low cost unit that would work well enough?
