Prizes will only be awarded to those who are present. In other words, you must be present to win!
Two Grand Prizes:
One ticket comes with registration, deposit in bucket of choice
Grand Prize #1
The FT-857D, the world’s smallest HF/VHF/UHF mobile transceiver, provides base station-type performance from an ultra-compact package that’s ideal for mobile or external battery portable work. Wide frequency coverage, outstanding receiver performance, and the convenience of optional remote-head operation make the FT-857D the expert’s choice for high-performance mobile operation!
The new FT-857D version includes coverage of the U.S. 60-meter (5 MHz) band, plus the previously-optional DSP circuitry, at no additional cost!
Grand Prize #2
The FTM-400DR is the first mobile introduced to be a fully compatable radio partner for use on the YAESU System Fusion Dual Mode system. Compared to other digital modulation schemes within FDMA, C4FM has excellent communication quality (BER: Bit Error Rate characteristics). C4FM is the standard method for professional communication devices in FDMA, and is therefore considered to be the main stream digital communication mode in the future. Download our “Digital Communications Guide for Amateur Radio Operators” available on our web site that explains more about this efficient and reliable digital mode.
The FTM-400DR operates in three (3) Digital modes and an (1) Analog mode to suit your needs. This feature packed radio is our first Digital Mobile equipped with our new Automatic Mode Select (AMS) function that instantly detects the received signal mode. The AMS function enables stress-free operation and eliminates the need to manually switch between communication modes.
Yaesu’s newest 144/430 MHz 5-Watt FM Hand-held was introduced at Dayton 2004. The FT-60R includes wide receiver coverage, outstanding audio quality, the most CTCSS/DCS flexibility in the industry, and a new Emergency Automatic Identification (EAI) feature for search-and-rescue work.
There are many other prizes of that range in value and will be awarded at various activities and sessions throughout the hamfest.
