Yaesu Day – Live Updates


yeasu day


Yaesu Day 2016 is over. Thank you to the hundreds of you who walked through our doors today. What a great turnout! The feedback we heard was very positive, but we’d love to hear your thoughts. Comment below, or on our social media accounts. 

We’ll keep you posted on our next Open Box retail sale and additional events. For those who couldn’t make it, we look forward to seeing you at Hamvention in a few months!

Thanks, everyone!


We’ve now given away six gift certificates – the last of which was for $100. Many more folks have joined us today, and coaxial cable is flying off the shelves. 


About 100 Hams are currently in the store, chatting with one another and meandering through the incredible deals available at Yaesu Day. They come from all backgrounds. Two traveled from Niagara Falls, a father-son duo came in from the Warren, Ohio area (about a 50-minute drive), and several young Hams are ogling the awesome equipment.


The first two winners of the Yaesu gift certificate drawing have been anounced. We’re giving away a $50 gift certificate every 30 minutes, and a $100 gift certificate at noon!


Dozens of people have poured into Summit Racing’s retail superstore for Yaesu Day, and the aisles are getting very crowded!  Attendees are starting to take advantage of the mountains of clearance deals.


The doors have officially opened for Yaesu Day 2016. Yaesu’s Dennis Motschenbacher, K7BV, and Chris Wilson, N0CSW, are both in attendance to talk about Yaesu’s products with attending Hams. DX Engineering is also holding its largest-ever Open Box and Clearance sale during the event.



DX Engineering Chief Operating Offer Tim Duffy spots a nearby retail store television playing an automotive video and quickly hijacks it to show the K1N Navassa Island DXpedition DVD. DX Engineering was a major sponsor of the DXpedition, so the video will make an eye-catching background show to the clearance racks it is mounted above.



DX Engineering’s Tom Parkinson, KB8UUZ, or “Parky,” as he’s more commonly known, works his way through the aisles, making sure to take pictures and video of the beautiful Ham Radio display. Parky is very involved in PCARS (Portage County Amateur Radio Service), K8BF, and is looking forward to meeting other club members at Yaesu Day.



The first Hams walk through the door for Yaesu Day. They don jackets and hats with their call signs custom embroidered. They meander through the mammoth Summit Racing Equipment retail store to the back wall, where there are several thousand square feet of tables and racks sporting new and open-box Ham Radio equipment.



DX Engineering’s employees are here, displays are set up, and Yaesu Day is about to get under way. The doors don’t officially open until 9am, but DXE’s hams, loaded with coffee and outfitted in their finest DX Engineering apparel, are itching to make some eyeball QSOs.
