I haven't mentioned this in a while, come to think of it. We give tours of
the Ten-Tec factory every business day from 9 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 3 p.m.
No prior notice is necessary, just show up at the door and we'll be glad to
you through. The tour itself runs about 20 to 30 minutes. We also have a
lobby showroom with all of our current equipment on display, and a large
what we've built in the past as well. Anything we sell can be purchased at the
factory. If you'd like to try out one of our current pieces of equipment, we
have four operating positions with all current transceivers and linear
amplifiers accounted for. Tower and TH7DX in the front yard. We also have
assembled versions of the VHF rigs in operation for 50, 144, and 222 MHz.
We are open for business until 5 p.m., but stop giving tours after 3 p.m.
as our shift workers leave for the day at 3:30 p.m.
Ten-Tec is located two miles east of downtown Sevierville, TN on Highway
411 north (1185 Dolly Parton Parkway) at the intersection of Highway 411 and
Industrial Park Blvd. Directly across the street from Sevier County High
Take I-40 to exit 407, follow Rt. 66 south 9 miles into Sevierville. At the
main intersection in town, make a left on 411 north.
