Perfect radio for a spare!
Perfect for going fishing….at this price point if it gets wet

And I know they work well as I have played with one.
Nice prize… Good luck to all
This is a nice prize.
Nice looking radio would be nice to have currently do not own a dual band handheld, would like to win.
Looks like it would make a good h/t for fox hunting
Looking to replace my Yaesu radios…especially the mobile FT-1802M with their new mobile when it comes out. This HT would replace the FT-60 I have here as well.
I could use one of these. Thanks for the contest.
Bought one of the first imported HTs that Ed brought to Dayton ! This one looks like a REAL WINNER !
As the drawing is 1 day from my birthday, (3-28) I can’t think of a better present! A new dual band Handheld. I have heard nothing but great reports on this radio (Well..the Wouxun) so it would be a great addition to my hiking go kit.
I would love one of these. Been thinking about getting one eventually, but being out of work, doubt that’s gonna happen any time soon.
Great Info/great promotion. Thanks!
Our thanks to the sponsor… good luck everyone!
DOING A GREAT JOB – KEEP IT UP. 73,LARRY

Bless the generosity. Love this site. Not only good ham info and chat but the Human Interest items as well.
God Bless you all.
Great promotion! Thanks!! I look forward to the newsletter.
Have been waiting to check out the Baofeng products but haven’t had and hamfests in the area as yet.
I check back many times during the day to see if any new emails from Amateur Radio Newsletter. I wish I had discovered it sooner. Keep it coming.
Thanks. Looks like a good possibility for handheld communication.
That would be a nice replacement for the handhelds that were stolen with the rest of my station. Good luck to all.
Here’s my entry. Thanks.
Great promotion! Thanks for the generous offer. Is electronics the only area where priced continue to drop?
It’s a great radio.
That’s the new one – right?
IT SEEMS THE NEW RADIOS GET MORE AND MORE FEATURE AND SMALLER PRICES.
I NEED AN HT, BUT KEEP WAITING DUE TO THE FEATURES AND THE PRICE CHANGES. SMILE, LADY LUCK!
i LOVE TO READ NEWSLETTERS THIS IS A GOOD PLACE SOMETIME TO LEARN NEW WAYS OF DOING THINGS, tHANKS
Amateur Radio – When all else fails
This nice little HT would be a great asset when doing searches with our CERT team here in Manchester, CT. Some of the other Hams say it’s a great radio and works well. Would love to get one of these Baofeng UV-5R Dual-Band HTs. Hope I can win it.
Good luck to everyone.
Thanks for the promotion. I need this radio bad.
Such a Deal!
I enjoy amateurradio.com and put my two cents in for the drawing of the Baofeng UV-5R Dual-Band HT + a Free USB Programming Cable!
As always a great place to find tips and tricks for ham radio! I also you this site to find new gear.
I have heard some good reports about this HT from ham radio friends.
It would be nice to own one and check it out myself.
Just renewed my license for another ten years and could surely use this to get me back on the air…

Good Luck to all!
Thanks for the oportunity to win a free radio>
I have been using a UV-3R and been thinking on upgrading to the UV-5R.

I really enjoy the newsletter and wouldn’t mind winning either!
Nice prize I read the news letter every day.
Looking forward to the dual-band mobile that is due out soon.
Great daily info!! I look forward to reading these notes every day.
Thanks for making the hobby even more enjoyable.
What a great incentive for my daughter to finish studying for her Tech!
Thanks for your generosity guys.
Count me in on the contest
I ordered one of these for a friend that does not have internet access and they are not available locally. I was very impressed with the unit and all that it would do. Have been thinking about getting one for me to carry around it is so handy.
This is a great prize!
I have been pretty happy with my Wouxun, and could use another nice radio for my girlfriend who is interested in Amateur Radio. Thanx for the contest! 🙂 73, Larry
I would love to get one of these.
I have the older baofeng uv-3r. It works very well and has been very reliable.
It would be nice to have the direct-entry keypad that the uv5 has. Great Prize!
Thanks, I could use one.
Would love to win it.
I’d love to win this radio. I just hope that whovever does win it can really use it.
I’d give to my Dad for Father’s day.
Three cheers for the folks who run this site! In today’s economic environment giving anything away is noble! Al
Read a little about this new radio also have read many comments
on the Internet.
I have been researching the Baofeng radios I would like to find someone who has one. This is an interesting way to introduce the newsletter and radio. We call that a twofer. hi hi
This is great. I very seriously considered buying the Baofeng UV-5R Dual-Bander earlier this year. I ended up buying a mobile rig for my truck instead, but I keep wondering if the HT would be getting more use just by nature of its portability. Sigh… Here’s to another shot at the dream.
Thanks to Import Communications for the chance.
Looks like a great value.
It’s time I had an HT…thanks in advance.
This is a Great Radio I have been told, I Would be happy to win such a nice prize.
Cool contest! Thanks!
I think it is GREAT for Ham radio as a hobby to have feature-filled radios at such an affordable price. I hear the importer has been working with clubs and Hamfests to make these available for door prizes and even to give new Hams a first radio.THAT is what Ham Radio is all about. Thanks for being there with a great radio and for being such a great advocate of Amateur Rasio!
Count me in. thanks!
Terrific giveaway. Thanks!
As a newly minted ham (less than one month) who is at the moment radio-less, I’d like to thank AmatuerRadio.com and Ed at ImportCommunications for providing the chance to win this particularly nice radio. Should I win it, I’ll sing your praises from the highest mountain (SOTA) and if not, I’ll still talk you up to radio friends.
Thanks for the nice radio to be donated.
I told my son I’d get him a radio if he got his license. This could help incentivize him too..
I’m in! Thanks and 73
W1MST – Matt and W4KMA – Ed for another prize drawing!
Great Website !
seen one, used one, now I would love to win one!
Nice!!! I have my UV-3R MKII on daily, this would be a nice addition and an extra resource for the net support we do for Emergency Comms here, as well as event stuff.
Someone is going to be pleased! 8^)
Great prize, always enjoy reading this newsletter
Thanks to the sponsors of this give away.
Let’s keep amateur radio alive!
Looking forward to Wouxun’s new dual band Mobile…
Hope that it is going to be Narrow band capable…Hope anyway..
as for Yaesu, kenwood, Icom and Alinco….good luck in your efforts
to match the new affordable units for us Hams.
The uv-3r has been a great Search and Rescue unit….as i am sure the UV-5r will be that much better at 4 watts….. way to go guys…. thanks….
Looks like a great radio.
Thank you for the offering. Looks like a great handheld!
Once again another great give away! Thanks for the opertunity.
One of the only things better than a new radio is winning a new radio! Good luck to all!
Very Cool! I could use a new HT. Good luck to me. 🙂
Looks like a good HT
Looks like a clone of the VX-3R!
Great pocket HT!
Thanks for the contest.
I was going to order one of these. Suppose I can wait and see if I win. I’m in no hurry.
Thanks for the Great offer and opportunity.
Looks like a fun HT to own!
I could really use a hand held. I have never owned 1 but have had use for one several times. I really enjoy reading the articals as well almost never miss 1.
73 de WA3MKN
Great idea and thanks for the chance to win.
Great promotion and great prize to.
I eagerly await your emails and read every bit of them.
I could really use a new handheld rig.
Thanks for all your hard work.
WooHoo! Free radio!
Thanks for the chance!
Oops! Now the email is correct!
I WON, I WON, I WON !! WHAT DID YOU WIN ? WHY, I WON A MAJOR PRIZE !
CAN’T YOU SEE, IT’S A MAJOR PRIZE !
Good luck to all and thanks to Ed for selling reasonably priced radios.
I would love to win this nice radio. Thanks
I recently would very like to have this portable because it does narrow band
Sure wish they would come out with an inexpensive HF rig.
In the old days, I would attach a wad of chewing gum to my paper entry in such drawings as these….. how do I help myself in the electronic age???
Oh well, I will rely on the tried and true… crossing my fingers!
I enjoy your newsletter whatever the outcome of the ‘drawing’.
I love amateur radio and can always use a new rig.
The deal is that if I happened to win, I will donate it to a new ham
in our club that doesn’t have one.
Clem Cantu WA6TVQ
What a great idea for a contest! Definitely will be styling at Dayton with a new HT if I win!
I hope I win. Thanks to Amateur radio.com and Import Communications for providing the opportunity. I’m crossing everything…..
Thank you for the opportunity to enter. A portable would be nice to own.
Matt thanks for the work you put into the site! Thanks to Ed for his donation and his efforts to bring affordable equipment back to amateur radio!
Here’s to the winner of the radio….whoever they may be!
Sounds interesting, good luck to all
Nice lookin’ rig.
Looks like a nifty little HT. I’ll take a stab at it and hope to win.
Another great prize but read the newsletter everyday…Bob NG4R
good deal and a great little ht
Great little radio
Great Radio – looking forward to one!!!
looks good, never used one yet.. happy talking !
I enjoy the newsletter and thank you for the chance at a great little prize.
Well now, I can hardly miss out on this ‘pile up’ 🙂
Love these little radios. I bought the KG-UV3 and they exceeded my expectations. I am getting my grandson and a great nephew interested in Amateur Radio and these would be great gifts for them when they pass their Technicians Exam.
This is a good prize to offer to hams.
This would be a nice prize, good luck everyone.
Nice to see that the Boafeng now has a DTMF tone pad.
This is just what I need.
Why wait? Just send me my radio. I’m gonna win! Hi Hi!
72 de Craig
I have read and heard mostly praise for this HT. Any criticism I have read or heard, in my opinion, is unjustified considering its cost. For the price of a replacement battery in a big three HT, one can get a battery including radio!
Good luck to all!
Please enter me in the drawing. THanks.
i read the site all the time!
LOOKS LIKE A GREAT RADIO.YOU HAVE MY ADDRESS SO JUST SEND IT. MY XYL TELLS ME I AM ALWAYS WINNER.
Wow – another great prize from Import Communications. Awesome.
Count me in!
Great info on this site! Thanks to the donor. Good Luck!
Pick me, boss! I need another for APRS! :O)
Great deal. Love reading the articles here.
Awesome promotion. Thanks
This is neat! I can use another HT. My backup HT ended up being used for a receiver for my APRS I-Gate.
Thank you for this generous offer. I also really enjoy the blog . Keep up the good work. 73’s, and have a safe and blessed week.
de, Chris Pickett-ke6faw
I WOULD GIVE IT TO A FRIEND WHO DOES NOT HAVE THE MONEY TO BUY AN HT .
It would be very nice to get one
Looks like a pretty cool little rig. I would not mind having one.
Great opportunity how can I say no:) Great luck to everyone, and hopefully a great summer for all.
I already consider myself a winner because of all the outstanding posts here! Thanks!
Pick me OMs! Thanks!
Looks like a real neat radio and also a fun way to get one!
Thanks for sharing this promotion. 73
Winning this prize will definitely encourage me to upgrade my license.
Can a licensed Amateur Radio Association enter the drawing?
We are building a Go-Kit and this HT would be a great addition.
If not, good luck to all!
Executive Director, ASCRA, Inc. (W0SHQ)
Sometimes it’s good to follow the herd !
This blog is my favorite. Good stuff every day.
The radios from China are a real game changer. They seem to be well made and have lots of features.
I currently own a very well used 2 meter 440 HT. I use it mobile,portable, and even as my “base”..(brand name being with held on purpose…)I have talked to and over heard a few Hams in the New England corridor speaking highly of the new influx of Chinese radios!! I have seen them and heard them and if I had the extra $$$$$$$$$ I would invest. Good equipment and probably will only get better.
Sure would like a new HT. I also enjoy AmateurRadio.com, keep up the good work
Would love to have my own HT instead of borrowing my husbands.
Thanks for the chance to win one.
I am hearing some good reports from owners of these radios! Hope to own one soon!
Brand new ham, maybe this will be my first radio!
Great to be part of this pileup! Thanks for this opportunity to win!
Great prize…good luck everyone!
Great idea! I wish everyone luck 🙂
Good way to introduce a new product. Good luck to all.
I’ve been hearing alot about these new handhelds & I would definitly like to win one.
73’s Joe KB3PHL
I hope the ham radio god is smiling on me. The UV3R is awesome. The 5 has some really great reviews. 🙂
Be blessed everyone! =)
Thank You W4KMA Import Communications and W1MST Amateur Radio Newsletter for this great Giveaway.
I have used one of their HTs with a digipeater for several years.
Good luck everyone!
Outstanding idea and a way to draw attention not only to the hobby/service but to a newer radio. 73 to all and great job Ed et. al.
My birthday is on March 22. Hope to win the prize. Thank you.
Great giveaway and great advertising for the vendor. Love this site.
Good luck to all!!!!
I would like to win but the way my luck has been going lately I wouldn’t win if I was the only one to enter!
Good Luck to everyone!
GOOD Looking HT need to get one for this summer in the campground
Cool beans! Looks like a nice little radio. 73 de K1OC
It Looks like a nice radio to replace my FT208R HT.

Pretty neat looking HT. I currently have a Wouxun and have been impressed by them this looks like it will be a good competitor to the Wouxuns.
Thanks Import Communications for supporting amaeur radio.
Early reviews look good. Thanks!
I’ve heard alot of good things about these radios.

Seems to be a great little HT. I have been debating purchasing one. Maybe I wont have to..lol Good Luck Everyone!
Best of luck all. 73
I have seen these HT in operation and they are quite nice. It will be interesting over the next number of years to see what China brings to the amateur radio marketplace.
Have been seeing and hearing a lot about this radio. Should be interesting to hear the comments about it in the weeks to come by those who have purchased one.
I presently don’t own an HT, sure would like to win this one.
That’s a slick little dual-band!
The new generation of amateur radio people will be more up to date in electronics than we did fifty years ago because of all the new media.
With prices of radios comming down and the elimination of the code test, we are starting to attract more hams
Great giveaway,from a great sponsor I have been looking at this new model for about a month now. Good luck to every-one
I just found out bout the UV-5R and was directed to this great promo. Thanks Ed for the chance to win one!
Nice prize, would love to have it! Thanks!
You can never be too thin, too rich or have too many radios.
Looks like a great new handy. No experience here but is the rubber ducky replacable with a 1/4 wave ant?
Thanks for the opportunity to win this radio.
I love the quality of my Baofeng UV-3R but would like to have the newer version with two lines for displaying the frequencies. I also have the software, which makes programming a snap!
What a great looking HT, excellent dispay!
I bought a UV-3R when they first became available, very impressive quality for a great price! This new radio looks even better. Nice prize, good luck to all!
Looks like a new radio toy to have some cheap fun with! Buy one for each day of the week.
73 de KL1A Sparky
I was planing to buy one of those, but I’d rather win one! Thanks Import Communications.
Thanks for making this possible. Winning this radio would be great.
Wow! Nice contest!
I’ve bought from Ed, great service – happy to see he’s also a supporter of this site.
Best of luck to all!

This contest is what made me discover this radio. Wow. It’s cheap, and it’s got a keypad. This UV-3D faces a future upgrade, haha!
Would realy like to win this one.
Great Prize! Thanks to all responsible.
Yes, place my name in the hat. I need a new HT!
I would like to try out this new handheld and see what
great features is has to offer.
reat would like one of these as a backup or loaner. 73
This is an awesome chance for a nice radio. Happy QSO-ing!
What a way to try for a radio for my birthday !! I am about to move into newer house so this be a nice thing to have while moving between houses. 1 for me and 1 for my son to get tbhings done. this way I can pack all my base radios up and install mobile back in car and be really covered for a move.
last move I did I lost the car in front of us after maybe 1 mile. they took off ahead of us got lost pulled over to watch for us. so they saw us pass them and got behind us. found out son hit the knobs on mobile and changes freq’s so he would not have heard us at all. hahah. ding bats do exist just keep them away from my radios !!
Would be nice to have it. Thanks for oportunity!
If I win, it will go to my newly licensed daughter! She hopes I win! Tks.
I can always use an extra radio.
I LOVE THE BAOFENG UV-3R
I want one! Looks nice..Never heard of that brand but the price is right and if it is good performer , it is a win-win.
Good luck to me….
Looks like a neat little rig.
I could really use this for Field Day set-up operations at my local club station.
I can hear it now!
I have a uv-5r on the way from Ed already but could sure use another! thanks Ed!
This is great!
I am new to this site. Will be attending on regular basis.
Looking forward to more info on these rigs!
My old Yaesu HT is dead and no parts available. I lost a newer one at Quartzsite several years ago. I ccould use a new HT.
It’s time for me to win something! Maybe this is it.
I think this HT will be a hit. i would love to buy some of the more expensive radios out there… but not in this economy. So that’s where this radio will definitely make a lot of us non-one percents happy
I’ve already ordered one but I’d be delighted to win another
Wow. That much radio for such a small price. Would love to win one to put it through some tough RF enviornments like Downtown and Midtown NYC.
New to ham and I don’t have a handheld radio, would be nice to win one.Thanks
Really a nice looking radio. You have my address so just mail it to me now. My XYL told me i am a winner…..

Coming through with another great give away. Good luck everyone has
Thanks for the offer – best of luck to everyone!
Good luck everyone!
Wish me luck!
That is a good looking radio. Dual band and receive for less than $100 seems like a deal to me.
I have never won anything. So maybe my time. Great prize also. Good luck to all.
A buddy has this rig, pretty nice unit. It is a nice upgrade from the UV-3R that I have.
Thanks for the opportunity to enter the prize giveaway. Congrats to whoever wins.
Awesome little radio. Good luck everyone
Interesting way to develop contacts.
One of our club members has one of the new Chinese hand held radios and says it is one of the best he has ownned.
Have a Quansheng radio, and love it, would love to try another brand to compare.
Nice looking radio.
Cute little radio!
My UV3R Mark2 is a nice rig but it is lacking at some things we take for granted. Things like a drop-in charger and better receive audio. Also the display can be rough to see in some locations. The preliminary picture of the UV5R shows a more rugged unit with some nice specs to boot.
Thank you, Import Communications for sponsoring this!
Nice contest and thanks.
Interested to check this item out. Thanks for the contest!
Another radio would be nice….contests are GREAT!
Like the price of this radio.
Heres my entry to the prize givaway. Glad to see more competition in the ham radio market!

If it is as much fun as the UV-3R it will be a blast!!Super little rig.
I’t nice to know, there are still people, who from their heart, arebsupporting Amateur radio in this time of recession. Bravo !
Nice Blog, thanks!
Sounds like a great idea, sure would like to have one.
Will be looking forward to my new handheld.
Looks like a nice radio.
Sweet! I want one!
I am relatively new to the hobby (1 yr 1 mo since I got my Tech; upped to General last month). Enjoying communicating and comraderie with fellow hams locally and dx, as well as learning more about radio electronics, antennas, propogation, space weather, and so many other exciting facets of amateur radio!
Excellent giveaway – Thanks!
Hey I can use one of those, nice radio.73’s Mike
Looks like a neat little radio!
And how about Ukrainian hams?
Keep up the good work.
Amigos: Sou um grande admirador desta organização espetacular, ha muitos e muitos anos. Acompanho praticamente tudo que pesquisam e nos divulgam. Não acho justo em hipótese alguma, que os participantes deste gracioso premio, um Baofeng UV-5R, seja apenas amigos dos Estados Unidos e Canadá. Faço questão que me incluam também na possibilidade de ser eu, um ganhador também. Porque não se sou, como já afirmei-lhes, um grande admirador de VSas. ? Quero participar deste sorteio também sim, mesmo sendo residente no Brazil, na cidade de LIMEIRA, ESTADO DE SÃO PAULO.
Good product, net idea to have a contest to get one free.
you are certainly doing the amateur community a big favor by marketing these nifty ht’s. They get hams talking again, bragging about their little powerhouses. sure sound great on the air.
Looks like are really nice HT. Best of luck to all.
This is a great website thanks for this great opportunity for a chance to win this new HT. Good Luck everyone.
I want to win. My son needs an HT.
Thanks to ED for his generosity.
Hop i win.
Great promotion for a good looking new radio.
I have UV-3r This will be great!!
Proud Ham user of a UV-3R (Great Radio!!!)looking forward to showing the NEW UV-5R to Ham friends!!!
The UV-3 is a great radio for the ham community
I love the UV3, these should be a great little radio.
Looks like a great little and effecient radio and would work great in allsituations
Very generous of the donor, nice to see, also very nice to win, thanks and 73 to all
Morning… a fellow ham steered me to this site. I have bookmarked it for future visitations. We shall look over the pages and links and perhaps we will have more thoughts we can write about. Cheers from Peterborough, Ont. CA
wow, what a great idea. i was thinking of buying one [still will] …it i can never understand how we can buy a dual-band handheld so cheap, makes you wonder…..thanks…73..
I had a UV-3R mark2 for over 2M. It works great and I am sure thr UV-5 will be as great.
Great promotion! This radio is really slick and I’ve had the pleasure of seeing one in person. Awesome radio for the price! Even if you don’t win it’s worth the low price!
Thanks for providing a great prize drawing for everyone.
This is a business savvy way of promoting the company and its products.

I think having prize drawings is a really kewl idea. It is also a good way to tell how many people actually read the articles in the email.
Just happened across your site and I am impressed. The giveaway is certainly terrific, good luck to the winner.
WooHoo a contest… count me in 😉
Thank you in advance for the freebee if I win.
I currently own 1 of these radios. Very rugged. Most impressed with the proce point. My wife is currently going through the Technician class test prep. Another radio like this one would be great for her passing the test gift.

Nice little radio…
Thanks! I’m signing up for your newsletter and following you on Twitter. I’m glad I clicked your link in my DuckDuckGo.com search. …scott
Thank you very much for holding this raffle.
I have a Wouxun and it does the job pretty good at a very fair price, but I spoke to someone yesterday who normally uses a Wouxun, but had borrowed a friend’s UV-5R, and it we all noticed the improvement in his audio. He also said the receive audio was better as well.
This sounds like a fantastic radio for the price.
Thanks for your support to Ham Radio.
Found your site from another ham – very interesting!!!!
Thanks for the opportunity. 73 de KF6U
Appreciate the opportunity to win my first amateur radio
This is a great little radio. My XYL is pushing to get one for herself (KI6GCX) and my son (KJ6QGV) is also intrested. The existing handheld (Yeasu VX150) is rugged but the lack of the 440 band limits its use by RACES/ARES groups. Keep up the good work.
thank you for this opportunity.
here we go again maybe i’ll be lucky this time!! nice looking HT
i like this radio more than the uv3r because the power is 4 watts right now
i do not have radiohaved because the one i already haved get broken
I enjoy viewing the web site and check it several times a day for the latest happenings, especially the QRP contributors.
Ed’s service at Import Comunications is hard to beat. Thanks for the donation Ed
I hope I win this.. I’ve been looking for a new 2 meter handheld for sometime now. This would really be a Godsend..
Great Promo to get folks to the new site. Thanks for your service!
Good luck everyone!
Thanks for the opportunity. Looks like might be a neat little rig.
Great Contest, best of luck to everyone. I have been looking at getting one of these rigs – great price and features…

I am a new ham and looking for a good radio. This one sounds like it will fill the bill since I am also a member of the local CERT unit associated with the fire department.
Would be good to have a radio for traveling.
Great Idea for a promotion! I have another Beofeng, I have been waiting for them to introduce one with a keypad.The one I have(uv-3r) is a great little radio.I get great audio reports,and when I show it to another ham they are impressed by its small size and great abilities!
What a wonderful radio with some real improvements.
Thanks for the info. Look forward for your newsletter.
Nice Radio. Good luck to everyone
I’m new to the hobby and I have found this web site very helpful. I just purchased this radio and look forward to lots of use out of it.
Wow! I been off the air and miss it,especially 40m but this U/V will do! being an old timer and living on SS I dont have any radios anymore,I cant afford them.Maybe this will be my chance to get back on the air!
tnx fer the opp
This is a great hobby!!! I have a Baofeng UV-3R, it is a great radio. I hear the Baofeng UV-5R is even better.
been wanting to go ht and have a great simple looking radio !!! nice one!!
The kid is getting my old HT. I could use a new one.
Very nice looking radio and contest
Thanks for the contest 73 KB9STR
This is a great idea to promote your website. My brother has the UV-3r and he likes it alot. Hope to see more of this kind of advertisement and would be happy to spread the word about it.
I’ve been wanting to check out this little HT. Thanks for offering it in the giveaway! 73
I just learned about the Amateur Radio Newsletter and am subscribing. I’ve also been reading a lot about the new Baofeng UV-5r and am interested in finding out more about it.
I want to submit my entry for the UV_5R drawing.
This has got to be one of the most cost effective radios around. Any concerns about the radio are minimized by dealing with a known US dealer.
Thanks for the opportunty to enter the contest.
What a great hand held to use for cross banding in the amateur bands and using for GMRS. ………..Enter me in the drawing.
Wouldn’t you know it, search for a radio, find wouxun.us, and who shows up on AmateurRadio.com with a beautiful give-away? Import Communications! Nice! Love the products and wish to see even more.
Great radio! I’ve used a friend’s radio and liked it. I might look for one myself this summer.
I HAVE A UV3R SO THIS WOUD BE A GOOD RADIO
Here is my entry
Interesting way to promote the hobby
Please help a college-age guy get an HT for emergency, digital, and SAT work! It would be much appreciates; thanks for the opportunity!
I was just looking at these radios thinking about buying one from Ed. It is a great guy I have bought wouxun ht from him and other stuff. This is a very nice prize to win. Good luck everyone!
The news letter is a valuable resource for the Amateur community. Nice to see the interest in our hobby. Promotions like this help to further participation in our hobby and keep the excitement and interest level up for newcomers and elmers alike. Thanks for your efforts!
