Equipment Delays and Shortages Persist

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.
