The Diamond SX-1000 is a dual range SWR/Wattmeter covering HF, 6m, 2m, 70cm and 1.2 GHz. The dual sensor design allows simultaneous connection of two radios (must be within the sensor's frequency range). The meter reads peak or average power, and is switchable to read forward power, reverse power, or SWR. Supplied with a DC cord to power the back light lamp.


1. Ramdon names/calls will be selected throughout the day from the list of those checked in to the chat room. A computer program will be used to randomly select a person from the chatroom list.  If that person confirms they are present then that name/call will go into a hat containing the names of semi-finalists. The person drawn will have 2 minutes to acknowledge they are present. If no acknowledge within 2 minutes, another random name will be drawn.  Drawings will occur randomly on Saturday and Sunday with no specific number of drawings.  These will be called semi-finalists.

2. All the semi-finalists names/calls drawn on Saturday and Sunday will be put into the hat.  At noon or soon after,  on Sunday August 17th, a winner will be draw from the hat of names and announced over the webcast.  For the final drawing, if your name is announced as the winner, you will have 5 minutes to confirm by a text entry in the chat room that you  are there.If that person is not there to confirm then we will draw another name from the hat. If for some reason, none of the semi-finalists are there to claim the prize, we will then start randomly drawing names again from the list of chatroom users until we have a winner.

3. Just being logged in and showing up on the chatroom roster does not constitute that you are really there. You must confirm by a text entry in the chatroom.

4.  All details and coordination must be worked out between the winner and the hamfest staff.  We will be announcing how to contact hamfest staff.  This prize is being given by the Huntsville Hamfest courtesy of GigaParts of Huntsville and not by WA5KUB.COM


The winner will communicate with the hamfest committee and coordinate all aspects necessary to insure that the prize is shipped to the correct address. The total value of this prize is approx $300.00 which includes shipping.
