About the April 3 Sale at 21:00UTC


Some reminders for you about shipments before ordering:

  1. Please take time to check that your delivery address is correct in your Paypal account;
  2. Please check your delivery zone (http://www.funcubedongle.com/?page_id=286);
  3. Please note that Fedex will not ship to PO Boxes.

Shipping for non-UK deliveries will occur on Tuesday 5 April via Fedex International Priority. This is a time definite service. I will endeavour to email tracking numbers to all recipients. This gives us Monday to prepare the shipping labels and other paperwork: in a typical FCD batch, we print around 700 sheets of paperwork!

Here are Fedex’s International Priority transit times (you can check the precise timing for your destination on their website):

  • Next business day delivery by noon to over 75,000 zipcodes across Europe;
  • Next business day by 10.30 a.m. delivery to 20,064 zipcodes across the USA and Canada;
  • 2 day delivery by 10.30 a.m. to rest of USA;
  • 2 day delivery to key Asian destinations;
  • 2-4 day delivery to all other FedEx destinations.

For UK customers, I anticipate being able to ship on Monday 4 April for delivery on Tuesday 5 April via Royal Mail Special Delivery.

Thank you!

    I live in central NY and at 1000hr this morning, I used Zone 2 for US and hit buy now and I get Sold Out? 2100UTC is about 4PM here (I think), so why sold out at 10am? Also this VAT (I think this is Value Added Tax) and EC and other things that I have no clue what any of this stuff means. Sorry but very confusing and being new to Ham radio it just makes it more confusing.

      Hello AJ,

      2100UTC is 1700EDT. You will need to wait until 1700 local New York time before the units are available.

      VAT is automatically applied only to EC buyers by Paypal based on their delivery address. Unfortunately although Paypal can be programmed to figure out whether VAT is added, it doesn’t offer the same functionality to determine the destination specific charges, so I have to manually ask buyers to specify their zone.

    Do the latest batch include the bias T? I still need to test this.
