Hi,

Well, isn't this fairly typical behavior by Elecraft on a major new product
introduction? Get used to it. Sure, Icom and the other big two probably have
thousands of units on the shelf when they make a product announcements, but
they have a different business model.

Hi Jim,

     Not broken down by prepaid levels but they did say in the Early 
Notification email this:

Deposit Preorders will be shipped from the first production run in the order 
received, followed by non-deposit orders.

      So I wasn't sitting at the computer when the announcement hit but was 
about 18 hours into the 24 hour window.  So I had to look at the fully
prepaid 
order as nothing more than a blatant bribe to move up a few notches on the 
shipping list and the free shipping.

       It may not be all inclusive but the order number for SN 45 was two 
minutes from N9PY's order and mine was 127 later but probably was not all 
KPA1500's or all of the KPA1500s. As they said other orders were received by 
other means too.

       On Feb 6th Eric said they were "shipping KPA1500 for several days
now". 
So after almost a month there are about 50 units shipped, most likely
including 
engineering units .  Not impressive or encouraging.

I'm not an Elecraft basher I'm Elecraft from 160 meters to 432MHZ.
