Where are the Black Friday Deals for  ham radio gear?

Things like LMR-400 for 40 cents per foot, FT-7900 for $100, connectors for 25 cents each in bag of 10, etc...

Don't know where you got those ideas.  Dreaming is still free, though.

Black Friday is a big mass market sales promotion for ordinary consumers.

Small scale specialty markets, as for ham gear, scientific equipment or industrial stuff, are not in the same category.

That said, there are at nearly all times bargains available for ham gear. Manufacturers have sales and rebates. There is lots of
nearly-new used gear available.

Look on ham classified sites. Look at ebay. Lots of opportunities to spend less.

Are you on the email list for any ham equipment dealers? I got several emails from Ham Radio Outlet about their Black Friday deals.

Not being motivated by mass media appeal (in part because I worked for years in the ad biz and cannot stand most advertising), I guess I am missing out on all the great ham radio Black Friday deals.

I know I'm odd but I figure I keep more money by not spending it rather than spending more and thus "saving more."

I just got an email from Elecraft about their Black Friday sale. I own and appreciate some Elecraft gear. I'm not impressed by their advertising. I was also very unimpressed by a "talk" given at a regional ham convention recently by an Elecraft founder.
It was all sales with little useful information. To me that's simple bait-and-switch.

Been on the road................

I thought some of the vendors might offer a loss leader or two and a small percent off the rest of the order for the holidays.

The R & L prices notes above are well and good but not what I would call "Black Friday" deals.

I will keep asking Santa...........................
