Join Hams from Around the World at DX Engineering’s 2020 New Products Showcase

One of the highlights of DX Engineering’s year is spending time talking everything Ham Radio with fellow operators at Dayton Hamvention®. Because we can’t be with you in person this time, our Elmers will be interacting from a distance at DX Engineering’s 2020 New Products Showcase, Friday, May 15.

Starting at 9 am EDT (1300 UTC), members of the DX Engineering team will be on Facebook Live for a morning packed with information and weekend specials. Be sure to “like” the DX Engineering Facebook page and join us.

From HTs to Dream Stations, DX Engineering is proud to host special events and provide ongoing service to Amateur Radio enthusiasts while continuing to adhere to recommended social distancing guidelines that protect our customers, employees, and communities. Here’s what we have planned for the 2020 New Product Showcase:

Hats Off to You!
