Any word on good deals for Amateur Radio "stuff" for the upcoming Amazon Prime Days?

I used the word stuff so that things like zip wire (used in stereo installs) could be included as
being used for Amateur Radio.

Haven't been looking all that hard; I get paid the day after Prime Days.   Roll Eyes

Free shipping is already a pretty good deal for things like 100 feet of 14 ga. speaker wire (even copper clad aluminum).

I was hoping for a deal on some Baofeng HTs at $15 each or less. Or some of SDR kits that feed a Raspberry Pi.

It would nice if some of the pre-made antenna feed lines were deeply discounted.

Not unless you want to pay $800 for a FT-857D! No deals for sure! My favorite is the FT-857 DC cable with 30A fuses and a cigarette lighter plug on the other end.
I did snag the outboard meter for the FT-857D for $23 though. Looks nice; now all I have to do is hope it works.  Huh

If no one is doing it that way, there is a probably a very good reason.

I have the LDG meter for the FT-897.  It is nice to have it so I can see different value combinations while transmitting to make sure I do not have something out of sorts.

Yes, this is a knockoff but the photos look great. Had a couple bad reviews (only 4 total) but both were bad for buyers personal reasons and/or inability to figure out how to calibrate the meter. Duhhh...
Hope mine is a goodie!
