Coming to Dayton Hamvention® 2023? Here are Five Great Reasons to Stop by the DX Engineering Booth

If you’re planning on attending Hamvention 2023, you’ll want to carve out some time on your busy itinerary to stop by Building One, booths 1207-1210, 1307-1311, 1407-1411, and 1508-1511. That’s where you’ll find the hams from DX Engineering in full force—ready to answer your questions, show you the latest products, fill your orders, and share stories of the rare contacts that got made and those that got away.

1.    Get Up Close to the Latest Equipment

It’s okay perusing amateur radio devices in our catalog or online, but nothing beats getting a firsthand look at the real thing. As we’ve mentioned before, DX Engineering headquarters near Akron is only a few hours away from Dayton, making it convenient for us to bring along boxes and boxes of new and popular items. How would this antenna analyzer feel in my hand? How would these speakers look in my shack? Is that picoAPRS transceiver really that small? How readable is that monitor’s LCD? Now you’ll know. Plus, you can purchase with confidence. Our hams will be available to ensure that you’re making the best selections for your needs.

DX Engineering’s team will be there Friday and Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm and Sunday from 9 am to 1 pm, giving you plenty of opportunities to stop by. Here is some of the new gear we plan to have on hand:

3.    Friendly Advice from People Who Know

Whatever you’d like to discuss, you’ll find a welcoming ear from DX Engineering’s team of active hams.
