To herald its entry into aviation communications, Dynon is offering a limited edition handheld radio. Some 100 compact aviation band transceivers were created as part of its plan to eventually supplement the SkyView glass panel system with a panel-mounted radio. As part of that program the company created handheld transceivers to learn about radio design, FCC Part 87 certification and radio production.
These 100 DX-15 limited edition handheld aviation radios are restricted to use in the United States and are being offered to U.S. pilots through a unique auction. To participate, bidders must visit Dynon’s web site and place a bid. A typical retail price for equivalent radios would be about $250, but starting bids as low as $75 will be accepted. Participants can bid only once, for up to two units. Shipping in the U.S. is free.
The top legitimate bids for the 100 handhelds will be accepted. If there is more than one bid at the lowest price, Dynon will accept the first bid submitted at that price.
Bids will be accepted between March 29th and April 27th. Winners will be notified by email and should expect to pay by credit card.
