    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

Yeah I just recently bought a new tuner from them ,very good people ,I can't definitively say they have a holiday sale planned but I can not imagine one not drawing in the holiday shopping crowd.so keep an eye on them for what your looking for.

Good outfit, fast service, my experience has always been positive.
Had a question regarding my Hustler 5BTV antenna (bought eons ago, before DX Engineering) and the DX Engineering guy spent a long time on the phone with me... was very helpful, knew his stuff about Hustler antennas.

In my experience, their prices are competitive with other on-line amateur radio dealers, they have really expanded the product lines that they carry, and shipping is outstanding.

Their warehouse is co-located with the Summit Racing warehouse. Summit is a major retailer of auto racing and hot rod parts and DX Engineering has been able to leverage Summit's established logistics partnerships. There are literally UPS semis backed up to the warehouse every day. If you get your order in before 10 pm Eastern Time and you asked for ground shipping, it will go out that day. Granted, your new antenna tuner may go out in a truck next to some other guy's new camshaft for his hot rod, but UPS doesn't care. A box is a box. And, shipping is free on most orders over $99.

When it comes to building antennas, DX Engineering has some unique products that you won't be able to find anywhere else.

They run sales all the time, though their prices are already pretty fair, so the sale discounts are often not that big.

I've ordered several items from them and highly recommend them.

I too have purchased many radio related items from them and I can say that every experience has been outstanding. Fast and free shipping with anything over $99 and they stand behind everything they sell. DX Engineering has become my one stop shopping store for everything I may need.

They're a long time respectable radio store.. Like HRO or Universal Radio. Definitely OK to order from.

I bought a 19 element UHF Yagi from them a couple of years back.
