Talk to Bob. An upstanding long time ham and was THE head tech for Frosty for couple of years. Bob has been to the factory in Italy and knows the people there. He can tell you how long a wait you might have getting an amp thru him, especially with the factory knowing of your dilemma and willingness to rectify any wrongs in being late on getting your amp delivered. Call Bob, as I said. Nice guy for sure and an excellent tech, knows the products in and out. I hope your check comes this week. But, some of my mail takes 5 days from the San Antonio area and other places in Texas for some crazy reason. Friday should give you the answer.
