Win a Yaesu FT-DX-10

Each year since 2020, the Alliance Amateur Radio Club has raffled off an HF Radio. Every year, the interest grows. A portion of the money raised goes back into our community in the form of donations to local service groups at Christmas Time.

Since 2020, we’ve donated over $3500 to Charities in the Alliance, OH area. 

This year, the choice of prize was easy; the Yaesu FT-DX10 The FT-DX10 is one of the hottest rigs on the market today, and covers HF + 50 MHz. You can read all about it on Yaesu.com.

This year, we are again capping the number of tickets sold to 1500. Once they are sold, that’s it. No more will be available.

The winning ticket will be drawn at our club meeting on July 12th, 2023. 

(If the tickets sell out early, we will draw
at our first regular meeting after the last ticket is sold.)

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I’m not licensed; can I still buy tickets? Absolutely! Even if you aren’t licensed, the FT-DX10 is a darn fine SW receiver. And maybe winning will motivate you to get your Ham license.

  • How many tickets are being sold? We have printed 1500 tickets. Whether they all sell or not, the winning ticket will be drawn on July 12th. NOTE:If they sell early, we will draw at our first club meeting after the last one is sold. 

  • OK, I paid via Paypal; what happens next? Well, we will send you your half of the ticket stub via USPS.  You might receive a shipping notification from Paypal when we process your purchase.

  • What if I win? That’ll be great! If we draw your ticket as the winner, we’ll contact you via E-mail (Phone if it was provided on your Paypal receipt). Then, we will get the radio to you quickest way possible. Either in person if you are in the NE Ohio area, or via UPS if you’re not.
  • How long have you been doing this fundraiser? We began doing this fundraiser in 2020, just before COVID shut everything down. 2023 will be our 4th year doing a HF rig raffle.
  • What about shipping? Shipping is on us to all US addresses

  • If the tickets are $5 ea, why is Paypal charging me $6.62? Well, we add extra to each order to cover the Paypal fees that we’re charged. We also add $1 to each online order to cover the cost of getting your ticket stubs to you. The small amount that is left over from the $1 is placed in a fund to cover the cost of shipping the radio to the winner.

  • I’m not in the US; can I buy tickets? We’re sorry, but due to dealing with customs, duties, etc, tickets are only available in the US, and possessions.
