Surprising in many ways. First such a low number of votes after getting 68 votes for the last poll. Second how few DX QSOs folks made in 2017. Of course it was not a peak sunspot year, but still.... I slipped a bit myself last year, but still was in the 600-799 range. I could have had more but when I would get my one DX streak QSO, many times I would not chase any more DX that day. Congrats to the 3 folks at more than 999.

The winner is (naturally) Elecraft. This company seems to have taken over the equipment market, and rightfully so with the excellence of its gear and being an American company. The next three choices are also no surprise. It is surprising that the boat anchor and dedicated QRP equipment companies got pretty much shut out. Nice to see so many votes for this poll, almost twice the average of the past several polls. I wonder what the 5 'Other' votes were for.
