    One lucky attendee at Dayton Hamvention® 2022 (May 20-22) will walk away with the largest prize ever offered in the history of the event—an Icom Amateur Radio Dream Station Package worth close to $20,000.

    The prize package, which includes an Icom IC-7851 HF/50MHz Transceiver and a long list of station accessories, was donated by DX Engineering in conjunction with Icom America, Platinum Prize Sponsors for Hamvention 2022.

    “On behalf of the many hams who work so hard to make Hamvention a truly special event, let me offer my most heartfelt gratitude to DX Engineering and Icom America for their Platinum Prize Sponsorship,” said Rick Allnutt, WS8G, Hamvention General Chairman. “We simply can’t give enough thanks to all of our generous sponsors. The Dream Station prize adds even more excitement to what promises to be an amazing three days in Dayton.”

    “Hamvention is one of the signature events of the ham radio calendar, and it’s something our team of active operators look forward to every year,” says Tim Duffy, K3LR, DX Engineering Chief Executive Officer. “Being a Platinum Prize Sponsor along with Icom America is our way of giving back to the amateur radio community who has supported us for more than two decades.

    Nice but, what makes this a dream station? For some maybe a Kenwood or a Yaesu might be a dream station.

    In most states, if not all, the prize winner recipient is on the hook for the sales tax for the entire typical sales total dollars. For Ohio, sales tax is 5.75% so winner, under typical conditions, would have to cough up $1116.
