INFO Delivery and restocking
Updated on 22 august 2022.
Delivery time for "out of stock" material
For several months now, our suppliers and manufacturers have been informing us of increasingly long delivery times for our orders of out-of-stock equipment.
If you have placed an order for an out of stock material, we currently have delays of 3 to 4 weeks on average with our suppliers.
There are several reasons for the longer lead times:
- The increase of the demand at the world level
- The shortage of electronic components (such as microprocessors in SDRs) and raw materials (such as plastic for cables)
- Reduction in the number of aircraft available for FRET
- Closure of a factory, a subcontractor or a carrier's platform following a quarantine due to COVID
Depending on the brand and manufacturer, the delays can be more or less important:
From 1 to 2 months: For Messi & Paoloni cables and Yaesu & ICOM equipment
From 2 to 3 months : For SDR equipment, especially ETTUS
3 to 6 months: For Diamond and COMET antennas
If we have the indicated material in stock on our site and in sufficient quantity for the order, we can ship according to our regular delivery times.
