Shipping and case updates?

Chris Metcalf
 

It's been a couple of weeks since Hamvention, and I was hoping we could get an update on potential ship dates for outstanding DRAWS orders, including the aluminum cases (I bought the kit).

Thanks,

I bought an "Early Adopter" aluminum case over a month ago, any status report on these?

I saw a hand modified early adopter case at SeaPac this past weekend.  It looked good but I was told delivery would be "summer".
Complete units would also be "summer" as they have the other parts of the units in hand.  I guess it is just the hazards of sourcing
cases offshore in relatively small quantities.

I saw that too.

I sure hope the actual ones will be a little nicer finished than the sample.

Yes they will.  

The delay is, in part, working with the manufacturer to get the case "just right".  In the meantime the C4Labs case works nicely with the early adopter HATS, if you are looking to provide earlier packaging.

The sample was modified with hand tools, to create an install slot for the SMA connector - the final cases will have that slot as part of the machining at the factory.

Thanks for the update, this is great news! I'm glad well be getting the boards even if we need to wait on the case, I can't wait to start experimenting.

Any updates on the shipping of backordered boards? We're about a week into the period during which backorders were to be shipped - is there any way we can get an idea how deep the queue still is?

Thanks!
