New Super Promotions from Globalstar and SPOT

Radioworld is pleased to announce two new promotions for our satellite products.

First, Globalstar is offering TWO MONTHS FREE SERVICE when you purchase a GSP-1700 satellite telephone, and activate it for one year on their Evolution plan.
What’s the catch?

More deals than you can shake a satellite phone at !
Two free months service and no activation fee !

Well, there isn’t one ! The Evolution plan was already a super deal ! You get UNLIMITED calling in Canada, the United States, and the Carribean, for $ 40 a month. Wow !
With the new promotion, you get two of those months at absolutely no charge ! So the phone must be super expensive, right ? Wrong ! Only $ 499 plus tax ! Unbelievable !
I almost want to say – “But wait there’s more !”, or throw in a free Sham Wow, so let’s add one more bonus : We do not charge the $ 50 activation fee !
(Taxes extra, phone must be activated before November 30, 2012, new activations only, must be activated at time of purchase in store)

For our next super satellite deal, purchase a SPOT 2 personal messenger, and get one year of tracking services for absolutely free, when you sign up for a one year service subscription ! That’s a $ 50 value.  Another incredible deal !
But wait there’s more !
The SPOT 2 is now reduced by $ 50, for the low price of  $ 149  now $ 99 !
Can you believe it !?!

(New subscribers only, offer limited to stock on hand, $50 free tracking ends December 31, 2012.)

Globalstar update and Spot personal messenger rebate.

If you have ever thought about owning a Satellite phone, now is the time. With the increased performance of the Globalstar network call times are improving and network reliability is up.

Rates are at a very affordable $40.00/month for unlimited North America calling, and with phone prices at historic lows. Now is the time to use this great tool.

Unlike cell phones a Satellite phone relies on a visual access to overhead satellites, so you will find that in areas were no cell phone coverage exists, a satellite phone will allow you place that important call.

Toronto Boat Show 2012 is a wrap!

Special “Thanks” to two great ladies for making this years event the “BIGGEST and BEST” Boat Show ever for Radioworld.  First and foremost,  hats off to Show Director Linda Waddell and her entire Team. Every facet from sign up through move-in, advertisings, overall look and feel and teardown went off without a hitch and the show and its people were firing on all cylinders. Crowds were spread out throughout the week and both weekends with thanks to that other special lady in our lives “Mother Nature”!
The Radioworld booth was our biggest and best yet, jammed pack with the best electronics money can buy!  Garmin Marine systems were a big hit this year with the re-emerging power boat crowd with many happy customers purchasing full blown, chartplotter/sounder/radar systems in screen sizes from 7″ to 15″. Garmin handheld products were also a hot purchase this year too!

Marine Electronics in general were definitely a key component to this years event with many consumers taking considerable time in identifying their needs and allowing our Marine Electronics Experts fit their needs best.  Simrad, Lowrance, Humminbird, Furuno and Standard Horizon Chartplotters and Sounders along with NMEA 2000 products including wind sensors, tank level monitors, fuel probes and engine monitoring systems sold like never before.

Our lost leader (Revere auto and manual inflation PFD’s) were also a big hit this weekend with 644 pieces sold over the 9 day event!  (Our friends at the OPP will be glad to know that people are safety conscious)

Thanks again to The Toronto Boat Show Team, to a great staff for their tremendous effort over the past two weeks (in the store and at the show), to our vendors and ProStaff for their support and to those many customers that chose to spend their hard earned dollars at Radioworld.

Sincerely

Jack Summers
General Manager

Spring Fishing and Boat Show

Anyone else tired of winter yet?   Well I am of mixed feelings for a few reasons. Firstly as a new sledder, I am really enjoying winter activities for the first time in my adult life!  Sure playing in the snow was fun as a kid… but in reality… it can really bite as we grow older!  The new sleds and the technical clothing made today makes life a lot more simple and enjoyable.

The next reason why I don’t mind winter is probably the more important one… “Show season”!  Most in the industry HATE the shows…but not me. It’s a great time to see what is new… its a better time to catch up with old friends and see those who we have not seen in awhile!

This coming weekend is the Spring Fishing and Boat Show being held at the International Centre in Mississauga!  Nothing gets the blood pumping more than knowing that Spring is around the corner and that open water fishing is coming soon!   This years show is going to be AWESOME.  Show Organizers Andy and Vita Pallotta have been working to put a bigger and better show together and the hype has never been better! 

Radioworld will be there with a HUGE booth and prices are slashed to the bone!   We will have awesome deals on Lowrance products (even more savings the HDS units with HUGE Factory Rebates), Humminbird, Minn-Kota, Garmin, Navionics Ram Mounts, Vexilar, Marcum, Aqua-Vu. FishTV, FishHawk, Revere ComfortMax, GoPro, Contour HD, Icom, Standard Horizon, Cobra, Streamlight, Durasafe, GoLight, Gerber, Backroads Maps, TopoNav, Fugawi, SPOT, Globalstar Satellite Phones and more!!!

Don’t forget to pop in and visit us at the show and say hello!

See you there!
