Make Plans to Visit DX Engineering’s Expanded Booths at the 2024 Dayton Hamvention®!

After months of preparation, countless volunteer hours, and anticipation by thousands of hams who have had the dates circled in red for months, the wait is almost over! The gates are set to open on Dayton Hamvention at 9 am on Friday, May 17 and close on Sunday, May 19 at 1 pm.

The result of all the behind-the-scenes work is a celebration of amateur radio like no other—three days jampacked with the best ham radio has to offer, whether you’re looking to score a vintage rig at the flea market, take home a brand-new transceiver, or walk away with information you can use from many educational forums.

If you get the chance, also take the time to congratulate this year’s Hamvention award winners: Special Achievement Award, Anthony Luscre, K8ZT; Technical Achievement Award, Ward Silver, N0AX; Club of the Year, the Young Ladies’ Radio League; and Amateur of the Year Award, Edward Engleman, KG8CX.

If you’re planning on attending the Dayton Hamvention, check out the event’s official website to map out how to best spend your time at the Greene County Fairgrounds and Expo Center in Xenia, Ohio—the location that has been a welcome home for hams from around the world since 2017. 

You’ll also want to take some time visiting DX Engineering’s booths in Building One—the company’s largest presence ever at Hamvention. Just like all the prep work that goes into putting on the best hamfest possible, the team at DX Engineering has been working nonstop to make sure your time at their booths will be well worth the visit. Here’s what you’ll find:

Lots of Station-Upgrading Gear for Sale

Because DX Engineering headquarters/showroom near Akron, Ohio is only about three hours away from Xenia, the company is able to truck down loads of products for immediate sale. Take your time shopping for popular transceivers, antenna analyzers, portable antennas, ferrite RFI suppression kits, coaxial cable prep tool kits, amplifiers, CW keys and paddles, receiving devices, grounding and bonding gear, lightning and surge protection, wattmeters, and much more.

Items on Display for You to Order

If you’ve ever seen the Summit Racing/DX Engineering warehouse on a trip to Northeast Ohio, you’ll understand the enormity of the operation. You’ll also understand that bringing along the full lineup of gear available from DX Engineering—more than 30,000 amateur radio products from 175-plus manufacturers—simply isn’t possible, even with our expanded booths.

What you will find are displays of many products that allow you to get up close and see for yourself why other hams rave about them—like the DX Commander Signature 9 40-10M Vertical Antenna. Like what you see? Place your order with a friendly sales rep and we’ll ship the product right to your door.

Meet the DX Engineering Team

For the DX Engineering team—enthusiastic, active hams like you—one of the most exciting moments of Hamvention is the initial surge of amateurs entering the booths on the Friday morning of the show, just after the gates swing open. While we enjoy helping hams over the phone or through email, nothing beats making eyeball QSOs with familiar faces or spending one-on-one time assisting a new operator who just earned his or her Technician license. Rest assured, you’ll receive the same friendly, patient, and informed advice at Hamvention that you’ve come to expect from contacting DX Engineering from y0ur QTH.

Simply, we love ham radio and Hamvention as much as you do—and it shows.
