Hamfest Prizes

Register now for the 2017 Glacier Waterton Hamfest for a chance to win one of these great Prizes!!!

Grand Prize

TS-480SAT + G5RV Antenna

Tailor-made for DX’ing, the new TS-480SAT HF transceiver raises the bar on portable performance. Despite its compact dimensions, it delivers an astonishing punch: 100W with a DC 13.8V supply. Yet its separate control panel is perfect for base station use. Sharing virtually all the same powerful features is the 200W TS-480HX, except that it boasts a built-in antenna tuner. Whichever model you choose, you can be sure of enjoying the best of both worlds with first-rate communications at home and on the trail.

 

Second Grand Prize

FT-2DR Yaesu – C4FM/FM 144/430MHz Dual Band Digital Handheld Transceiver.

This exciting leading edge Transceiver is designed with ease of use in mind now packing an oversized back-lit touch panel display. At 1.7-inches the high resolution touch screen display provides loads of information through an easily navigable interface, providing stress-free operability and a high level of on-screen visibility for the FT2DR operator.

The FT2DR also is equipped with Yaesu’s versatile AMS (Automatic Mode Select) capability providing FM friendly digital communications that instantly recognizes either digital or FM analog communication and enables co-existance between the various modes. In addition, We have also included standard System Fusion features in the FT2DR to make it an ideal digital communication product for all Amateur Radio operators, such as (but not limited to): Snapshot with image data transmitting (requires MH-85A11U), Smart Navigation, Digital Group Monitor (GM) featuring position data and ID data transmitting during transmissions, and full support for the new and robust WiRES-X System.

 

Pre-Registration Prize

FTM-100DR – C4FM/FM Analog 144/430MHz Dual Band Digital Transceiver

The FTM-100DR’s Dot-Matrix Display and Single Receiver design make it the ideal radio for both entry level and advanced Digital Radio enthusiasts.

The newly designed and compact front display includes a vibrant and highly visible White-LED backlit display (160×40 Full Dot Matrix) and a bright multi-colored Mode/Status Indicator to visibly and clearly inform the operator of the current state of the transceiver. The multi-colored Mode/Status Indicator on the display faceplate indicates what mode the radio is in by changing from Green (Receive Analog) to Blue (Receive Digital) when receiving a signal.

The FTM-100DR utilizes Yaesu’s revolutionary Automatic Mode Select (AMS), as well as a full suite of C4FM Digital and FM Analog features. AMS instantly recognizes whether a transmission is analog or digital and appropriately switches the transceiver operating mode to allow flawless co-existence of both analog and digital communication
