Hams ordering new gear may be facing delays and backorders due to
continuing problems with the global supply chain network for just about
everything as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. As of press time, DX Engineering
was advising customers on its website that "(m)any suppliers are behind
schedule, (and) you may experience delays in shipping or product availability …
We are working hard to ensure the fastest delivery possible, but your order may
take longer to arrive due to circumstances beyond our control. We appreciate
your patience and understanding."
And it isn't just one dealer. Ham Radio
Outlet's web page advises that "(d)ue to unprecedented shipping volumes,
UPS, USPS and FedEx are experiencing delivery delays." Patience is the
watchword as you wait for your new gear to be delivered.
