Prizes at NEAR-Fest III
« on: May 06, 2008, 09:19:17 PM »
I am happy to announce that we have a new Prize Chairman!  I asked my friend John Goran, K1JJS,  to oversee the distribution of the door prizes and he did an outstanding job. 

The main prize was won by Frank Furman, WA1UIL of Chicopee, MA.  We thank ICOM AMERICA and Lentini Communications for helping us obtain this great radio.

Other winners include Jennifer Weiner, KB1GXK, of Monticello ME who won the R-390A Video donated by Floyd Soo, W8RO, Hi-RES Communications,  (value $110.00 and worth every penny).

West Mountain Radio provided NEAR-Fest with several very nice prizes including a RIGBLASTER PLUS, (value $150.00), along with three other great hourly prizes

"Hourly" Prizes:  Drawn Hourly.  You need to be present to win.  Winners may select the prize of their choice from the available items in the Hourly Prize Pool.

One Year subscription to CQ MAGAZINE courtesy of CQ Managing Editor, Gail Schieber, K2RED (value: $36.95).

WEST MOUNTAIN RADIO: RIGRUNNER model 4005 (value: $65.00), a RIGtalk USB controller (value: $55.00) and a PWRCrimp tool (value: $50.00) for 15, 30 and 45 Amp Anderson PowerPole connectors. 

Our friend, Evelyn Garrison at Alinco has donated a $50.00 gift certificate towards the purchase of any Alinco radio.

Tom Perera, W1TP has donated his THE STORY OF THE ENIGMA CD - fascinating and very well researched as I would expect from a University Professor.

You get an 'A' on this one, Tom!

In addition to the above. Tom has provided us with his newest CD-ROM, FOREIGN MILITARY RADIOS.  Another interesting work indeed.  Please visit Tom's outstanding Web site for an interesting tour.  WARNING: Please allow several hours for the "quick" tour!

Byron Johnson donated a certificate that will allow the winner to choose any Larsen mobile antenna he carries.  We also thank John of Quicksilver Radio Products, Gene of KJI electronics, Dave of BatteryTech and several other commercial vendors who donated prizes.
