    FFAB:

    From the previous comments, it seemed that people were getting information direct from the company about their order. I am very aware that PayPal will send a message when the item has shipped.

    Is the RD15 swap just a direct replacement? No other parts need to be changed?

    No its not a direct replacement, pin outs are different, output impedance is different and needs the output transformer rewound etc.

    I received my uBITX yesterday at 10:30AM and made my first QSO by noon. It's a great radio with great receive audio and transmit audio. Next step is to install in a nice metal enclosure.

    I got a notification, from the supplier, a few minutes ago telling me that they processed the PayPal payment on 12 December. I am now "in-line" for a shipment.

    Not all that timely! The payment was authorized, by me, late on the 9th of December and it shows completed on the 12th.

    Obviously its not all that timely, they had 1000 boards and those sold out in 2 days and by the end of the week they had backorders for more than another 1000 boards. They are doing better at getting them out than qrp-labs are, im looking at 10 weeks for my order of a qcx. It is what it is, these business are not icom or amazon, they just do not have the man power to deal with such order volumes other than with time. The fact they had only a 3 week lead time to have boards spun up over christmas is amazing.

    Glen,

    I haven't heard directly from HFSigs yet, but I just received notification from PayPal that mine has shipped, with tracking number.

    Now I'm sorry I overslept and missed the monthly club breakfast... one of the guys is giving me a case to use! (Just have to hope he comes to the next meeting!)

    According to the DHL website, the kit is currently sitting in Bangalore, India, and is due to be delivered on Tuesday.

    I got mine about a week ago, still sitting here in the box. I have a Bud case arriving today, maybe I'll get it going and post some pictures!

    I sure wish there was a prefab case for this radio.
