Status of Tuner Genius

On January 25, 2021 the Tuner Genius Program Manger stated that it would begin shipping in February (post copied below). We're into March now and I haven't head a peep about it. Does anyone know when the Tuner Genius will really begin shipping ?

Thanks,

@ARNOLD GOLDMAN the TGXL will begin shipping next month. Full integration with the Flex Radio, PGXL and Antenna Genius. 

Just so you know.

    I actually know as the PM. Guys, please stop the sniping. It drives me crazy as a former Army Colonel and ham for 52 years. It reflects badly on character.

    The TGXL HAVE shipped. I'm running a test group of a few trusted Alpha team members who are in the pipeline to receive one just to be positive we haven't missed something. That will likely last less than three weeks. They are being built in mass as I type this. You're going to love the TGXL. Watch my presentation during the QSO Today hamfest this weekend to see a brief demonstration and overview. I'll try to be in the meeting room when my schedule permits to answer your questions. Please believe that it is to everyone's advantage to get these into the broader market as soon as possible.

    Read the "Any update on Tuner Genius" post. It indicates shipments starting 1st Quarter 2021.

    It's a safe bet the the TG-XL will begin shipping as soon as FRS feels its fully ready.

    Flex has been saying “soon” forever. Doesn’t mean a thing. This time someone “official” - the PM - said something specific which was that it would be last month. I’m hoping someone who actually knows will clarify that.

    Mack,


    Thank you for taking the time and keepng us informed. I am set up and will either attend the Virtual Hamfest this weekend or as I can. Have to work so not sure if I can attend the "live" presentations.

    Good luck and thanks!

    Not “sniping”, just asking an obvious question.

    Thanks for the updated status.

    its not sniping, it’s a symptom of a trust issue. Many of us feel we’ve been abandoned by flex for greener (military, DOD) pastures. Once broken, trust is difficult to regain. I’m sure this has been covered in your officer training at some point.

    John KB4DU - absolurely correct.

    Also pretty sick of things like simple, basic, obvious questons being met with behavior like critisim for "sniping".
