Re: [softrock40] Re: Kit shipments
Tony split the shipment into two parts for the 6.3RXTX and V9RX. The Si570's are back ordered. This allowed him to offer several hundred kits just prior to Thanksgiving. They were available on his site for almost a week. They are all sold now and he is shipping the first half out. Second half when he gets the 570's.

I am hopeful of having the rest of these kits shipped before the end of the first week of December. There is still no word on when the 200 pieces of CMOS Si570 I have had on order since late October will ship. The second mailing associated with the [SPECIAL SITUATION] kit orders will depend on receiving the Si570 devices.
