Ordering date, shipping date, Ordering date, received date

Ken Brown <n4so.ken@...>
 

There are multiple messages on BITX of an ordering date, shipping date, or ordering date and received my BITX date.  Do you think everyone wants to know your ordering date, shipping date, or your received date, or your not-received date of your BITX?

The ordering, shipping, and delivery dates are used to optimize product delivery
procedures.  Need for this may decrease once backlog situation is resolved but
there will probably still be some interest because it tells purchasers what to expect
in shipping delays and which carrier might be the best to choose when you order
a BITX.

By my estimate there could be as many as 1000 constructors still waiting to receive their uBITx.  So yes!  Once HF Signals have caught up with the backlog these messages probably will not be as useful.

I update the info on shipping on uBITx.net based on these shipping confirmations.  HF Signals is catching up fast and probably will have cleared the backlog within 2-3 weeks, which is great news for those waiting.

We know from a comment from Ashhar Farhan that he has received around 4000 orders ...

They are in order and it would seem yours should have shipped. Why don’t you email them?

Yes! I get excited as people reporting their received date VS order date. Hence my order date gets closer everyday. I check the progress everyday.

It was done to gauge the delays getting the orders out. They were pretty back logged and people were trying to calculate the delays. It has been picking up speed where they are catching up with their back log. I’m sure it will simmer down soon.

A friend of mine found this on the QRP Tech forum. Since I haven't gotten brave enough to tackle having PCBs made, I can't vouch for it's usefulness or accuracy, but looks like something worth trying:

New file uploaded to BITX20@groups.io

BITX20@groups.io Notification <BITX20+notification@...>
 

Hello,

This email message is a notification to let you know that a file has been uploaded to the Files area of the BITX20@groups.io group.

File: ubitx_I2C2L_V3_00R.zip

Uploaded By: Jim Sheldon

Description:
W0EB/W2CTX Latest I2C Firmware for the uBITX My apologies for so many notifications on "uploaded files" today, but after many computer problems earlier - the original files I had uploaded needed a few last minute bugs cleaned out. We believe that has been taken care of now and the old files were deleted to allow for these new ones to take their place. This firmware ONLY runs on an I2C enabled (modified) Raduino Card or on our RadI2Cino card. This version is for TWO line by 16 character displays with the I2C backpack installed. It has a fully functioning CAT system, Interrupt driven CW routines with Iambic A and B modes, Dot and Dash paddles are swappable in the software and it has a completely re-written Alignment routine which is much easier to use and if you follow the instruction manual's appendix on alignment can be very accurate. For those using Xloader, the compiled HEX file has been included for ease of upload.

You can access this file at the URL:

Actually some folks do, especially the ones wondering when theirs will ship. If it bothers you, delete it and move on.

These might be better directed to a special email receptacle where somebody compiles them and prints on the webpage the rough progression of deliveries.  Then those who are quite interested in that information could simply click the webpage and discover how things are proceeding.

I'm willing to bet that the interest in when it was ordered, when it was shipped, when it arrived on a doorstep is only shared for a short time by a very few.

Ashar knows what he's doing, we don't need a blow by blow. These "status" messages are only cluttering up a very busy group To top it off, it gets very tiring having to delete so many "status" messages over the course of a week.

Just my two cents.
