At FDIM 2012 Ten-Tec were at our Vendor Evening with a prototype of the Argonaut VI. The radio is now in production and is destined to become a classic.

In this presentation Jim Wharton NO4A will talk about the Ten-Tec Argonaut VI and the Model 418 companion 100 Watt amplifier. Jim is the Ten-Tec Vice-President and a long time member of QRP ARCI.

Ten-Tec will use FDIM as a platform to announce a new product in their ever expanding range of ham radio equipment . . .

Jim Wharton, NO4APlease note that this event takes place in the Lecture Theatre. Seats are limited, we recommend you get there early. The presentation will be streamed live over the web for anyone unable to attend in person (details will be published here nearer the date).

Remember - everyone who uses online booking to buy a Seminar ticket will be entered into a draw to win a Ten-Tec Argonaut VI !  The draw will be made live during the seminars and the radio will be handed over immediately.
