I will have some more units ready for Thursday 26 May at 21:00UTC.
For the first time, we had units remaining for some time after the last sale for a few hours, so hopefully we’re now in a position where I can maintain a stock level.
Many thanks, Howard
I have tried multiple time’s from 21h00 UTC last night and always got sold out
There were 100 units that sold between 2100UTC and 0215UTC, so you should not have received “sold out”. What is your time zone?
Hi There. I would love to have one of these SDR’s but I don’t have Paypal.
Is there any other method of payment…. pse… Visa etc…
I beleive it is possible to make a payment with Paypal without having a Paypal account, using Paypal as the credit card authorising agent. I’m afraid that right now I don’t have any other way of accepting international payments.
Thanks Howard on the PayPal issue. I will ask a friend who does have it and pay him. Missed this round of sales. Will look for the next release.

Does anyone have a good contact at Elonics? I am interested in the E4000 silicon tuner for a project but they do not reply to the emails I send to the address provided on their web page. Do they by any chance have any sort of representation in the US?
Have you tried calling them? As with most silicon tuner manufacturers, they will require you to sign an NDA. Unlike several other silicon tuner manufacturers, they _did_ respond to my correspondence. I am not sure what their response will be if you’re only doing one-offs. I was up front and estimated “about 100 to 500 units” and they didn’t baulk. I would think they normally talk in terms of 100,000 units plus though.
Our time is a bit out of sync but I can try calling. I suspect our volume would not be 10K+ but certainly more than 100-500pcs.
Do you have an email address for a “real person” rather than the “info” one on their web page?
Grrrrr!!! my wife has been trying for weeks to get me a fundongle.,
Today at 2100 utc as soon as the time came to21oo, she clicked the time zone 1 and was automatically sold out.
How ??? She clicked at exactly 2100 ???
I was on a 3G connection when I updated the inventory in Paypal, so there was a bit of a delay but it was certainly there at 5 seconds past. The item sold out quickly, in a couple of minutes this time for some reason compared to Tuesday, not sure why.
There will be another sale on Tuesday 31 May.
Two reasons I can think of, Howard: Exposure at Dayton Hamvention, and I sent a reminder to the AMSAT-BB a couple of hours before the sale 🙂
That would figure – some strangely familiar names on my Fedex list today!
I think it was a hot topic on twitter this week, that may of helped.
Onward and upwards, I shall try again on tuesday 31st.
should have bought on when I saw you assembling them at Kempton Park.
It is 21:02 UTC 5/26 and it says sold out for zone 2 (USA).
Missed again at 15 seconds past !!!!
I tryed several time to buy it.
Always got the answer “Sold out”
How can I get on?
