As mentioned you get an email from Paypal when it ships. I had mine shipped DHL and got a phone call from them the day before my Paypal notification of shipment. Haven’t heard anyone else say they got a phone call from DHL. Maybe I’m just special ;-)

Not a new ham (45 years in the game), but a new uBitX buyer.
I just ordered on Friday the 13th. Other than my palpal receipt, should I expect anything about shipping confirmation? No other emails received.
I'm a software guy, so some interest in tweaking the firmware. I know that there has been some CAT stuff done with the FT-817 Protocol. I happen to do a lot of remote operation and have an Elecraft K3/0 -- the full-size K3 with no RF in it. It's just a nice front panel with RS-232 that you connect to a remote K3. It would be great to implement the K3 protocol, so I could use the front panel. I could use Digital potentiometers for the pots on the board. I could even mount the uBitx inside the K3/0.
Looking forward to experimentation and lots of QSOs.
