FREE – Yaesu FT-897 Transceiver – Year End Prize Draw!
Wow, hamshack.ca is 3 years old this November and to recognize this milestone and inject some excitement, a special year-end giveaway is announced! Up for grabs is a slightly used Yaesu FT-897 Transceiver!
Yes, you read it right—a shack-in-the-box FT-897 could be yours on January 1, 2024. All that’s required to enter this fantastic prize draw is to list an item on hamshack.ca.
So, why the giveaway?
Pay it Forward: The Yaesu FT-897 Transceiver was acquired at a hamfest for the incredible price of $250. While it could be sold for up to $800, the choice is to pay it forward. The draw is a heartfelt offering, designed to enhance the camaraderie among hamshack.ca amateur radio enthusiasts, ensuring that the focus remains on the passion for the hobby rather than making money.
Encouraging the Exchange of Surplus Gear: This giveaway serves as an incentive for hams to dust off their surplus gear and list it on hamshack.ca, supporting the primary purpose of the site—to get surplus amateur radio gear listed, sold, and back into general amateur use.
Fun and Engagement: Most importantly, hamshack.ca aims to be a fun and interesting website to visit. While it serves as an effective buy and sell platform, why not add some excitement and have a blast while doing what we love?
