SYDNEY, NSW: Uniden radios have been helping Australians stay in touch for years, but now marooned Aussies have another reason to turn to Uniden – an opportunity to meet a true sporting hero.

To celebrate the launch of the new narrowband UHF-CB network in Australia, Uniden is teaming up with Queensland great Darren Lockyer in a prize giveaway promotion.

The first prize of the competition is enough to make any diehard league fan excited – a lunch for two with the famous five-eighth, as well as a personally-autographed jersey and a Uniden prize pack worth over $2,000.

The competition is open to anyone who purchases a Uniden 77 Channel UHF radio between 15 July and 15 October. Designed to work with the new UHF-CB network, Uniden’s 77 Channel radio was launched in January and was the first of its kind in Australia.

In addition to the major prize on offer, Uniden is also treating 50 second-place winners to a Uniden UH076SX-NB 5 Watt Handheld Radio (valued at $299.95), while 100 third-place winners will receive a Uniden Ultra-Pocket Size UH037SX-2NB Handheld Radio (valued at $69.95).

Speaking about the promotion, Senior Marketing Executive of Uniden Australia Brad Hales said it was a great way to get consumers excited about the new UHF-CB network.

“There has never been a better time to upgrade to a Uniden 77-Channel radio than now,” he said. “The ACMA launched the new UHF-CB network in late May, so Uniden 77-Channel radio users can now take advantage of less network congestion, allowing for faster and easier selection of a clear channel.

“We are very excited to be teaming up with Darren Lockyer to offer such a fantastic range of prizes, and give our customers a chance to meet one of Australia’s greatest NRL players as he finishes his career in club and representative level football.”

The promotion will run from 15 July to 15 October 2011. Entry forms and further details are available at
