I agree that the MFJ SD Card is well worth the $40 price. However, a number of people keep reporting that the SD card is on 30 day back-order from MFJ. And that 30 day window appears to be continually pushed back. Since there are no unique hardware components to the card, I am having a very hard time in understanding why the card is so difficult to get. I understand that the demand for the complete MFJ-1234 system is high, but as I have stated before, it only takes less than 2 minutes of someone’s time to burn a new SD card – and that assumes that the process is not automated.
My guess is that MFJ wants to discourage end-users from purchasing the SD Card so that they will be pushed into buying the $150 or $299 system.
I would be interested to know how many people have actually ordered and received the SD card from either MFJ, Gigaparts, HRO, etc.
In the past, I have had to cancel orders to MFJ because the particular hardware item was in continual backorder. And the part was going to stay in backorder because of very minimal demand.
