Is it necessary to buy SWR Meter for every Ham?

It is not necessary to buy an SWR meter for VHF or UHF users. Once we tune the antenna using an SWR meter, there is no need to check the SWR repeatedly unless there is some damage to the antenna. However, in the case of HF, the SWR meter is always handy as with an SWR meter attached to HF, we are always sure that every time we are throwing enough power.
