If the Bonus Question is unavailable early in the day, you may submit your callsign again later in the day and if you enter your callsign the same way both times, the Sweepstakes program will not duplicate your earlier entry. Please refrain from using extra characters or spaces in your callsign as this may cause a disqualifying duplicate entry.
What do I do if my callsign, phone number, or email address changes during the Sweepstakes?
On your next Sweepstakes entry, put the correct information. We will use the most recent information you submitted to contact you. If that fails, we will use the older information. If your callsign changes, just make sure you don't enter your old and new callsign on the same day... that is cheating.
How is the winner selected?
Each entry and bonus entry is assigned a sequential number in the Sweepstakes database. At the end of the Sweepstakes, we use a random number generator provided by an outside source to generate a winning number ranging from zero to the total number of entries. The winning number is associated with an entry in the database. We investigate the winner to determine eligibility and look for signs of tampering or cheating and then contact the winner.
What if I win the radio after purchasing it?
All purchases of the Grand Prize radio during the sweepstakes promotion period qualify for a refund of the radio purchase price if you are selected as the winner during the Grand Prize drawing and choose not to accept the radio(s). Purchasing a radio before the drawing ends will not increase your chances of winning, but it will certainly make waiting for the Grand Prize drawing much more enjoyable!
Why do I need to have an amateur radio license from the FCC to participate?
Believe it or not, there are thousands of people who enter every online sweepstakes they can find. When they win, they sell the prize and pocket the cash. That’s not what this promotion is all about. We want this prize to go to someone who will appreciate it and use it. We understand there are people just getting into ham radio that aren’t licensed yet that this rule excludes, but we hope it serves as additional motivation to get their ticket.
Why don’t you have a worldwide sweepstakes?
The main reason is that it’s not practical or affordable for us to come up with Sweepstakes rules that would be legal in every country. Another big reason is that the prizes are not CE certified, so they are illegal to import into a lot of countries, including Australia and pretty much all of Europe.
No purchase is necessary to enter or win. Purchases will not increase your odds of winning.
PRIZES. One Grand Prize, Yaesu FT-DX10, valued at $1499.95. The winner is responsible for all taxes and expenses associated with accepting the prize.
