Haverhill, MA, September 28, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Amateur Radio Supplies of Haverhill, Mass., announced today a new biannual giveaway to promote youth in amateur radio DXing and contesting.
“Getting on HF (high frequency) in today’s economy is very challenging for many, but especially for our youth operators,” said Jeff Demers, owner, Amateur Radio Supplies. “Many youth operators are unable to purchase the needed equipment to get on the air. Here at Amateur Radio Supplies, we want them to experience the joy that has propelled us in this hobby for many decades. Thus, on January 1, 2013, we’ll be doing the first of many station sponsorships to support youth in DXing and contesting.”
Amateur Radio Supplies will give a complete HF (high frequency) station to the selected applicant, including:
Alinco DX-SR8T/E 160-6m All Mode Transceiver & 30 Amp PS
LDG AT-100 Pro II Desktop Antenna Tuner
Choice of Rugged All Band G5RV or HyGain DX-77A Vertical
100’ of Premium RG-213 Coax
Vibroplex Brass Racer Iambic Paddles
SignaLink USB Sound Card for Digital Modes
Heil Pro Set Plus Headset
Applicants from any country under the age of 21 are invited to provide brief answers to the following three questions, as well as their name, call sign, and license class, online at http://www.amateurradiosupplies.com/youth-s/222.htm:
1. How often are you able to operate on the HF bands?
