2014 QRZ Anniversary Sweepstakes: Kenwood TS-990S           qrz

from qrz.com

As we approach our 21st anniversary, what better way to celebrate ham radio’s biggest website than with the newest, biggest, and most capable radio released in the past 2 years?

That’s right! One lucky QRZ member will win the prize of a lifetime! We will ship a brand new Kenwood TS-990S directly to their QTH.

This is a fantastic prize, one which I wish I could win myself. With a retail value of nearly $8,000 delivered, it’s a radio that most of us can only dream of. Thanks to a generous sponsorship by Bob Patton, W4PG, and support from Gigaparts.com, we’re able to offer the biggest online ham radio sweepstakes prize ever given away.

The prize is open to all QRZ members who are licensed amateurs. You may enter the sweepstakes multiple times, as often as once per day. The drawing will be held on November 1, 2014 and announced here on the QRZ home page.

Also, each week we will select one lucky winner to receive a special weekly prize of a lesser value. There are no surveys, no questions to answer, just login and click the Enter Sweepstakes button.

Enter now at The QRZ 2014 Anniversary Sweepstakes
