Just curious..
* Where is the radio hardware assembled?
*At what point and where does Flex add the software?
*Curious about the backlog for new radios
-Flex is waiting to receive radios from the production site
-Flex is loading software on the "hardware boxes"
-Covid has slowed things down
-Your radio failed QC!?!
-Your radio was dropped while loading it on to the UPS truck?
Idle minds think about strange things. I keep seeing the vision of "you can't handle the truth" pop up in my mind.
Curious in Kansas,
Thanks, John KØFUZ

    The radios are built here in the U.S.A. in Texas. Once the radio is built it is loaded with the latest version software and any options the end user has purchased, then burn-in tested before shipping.

    COVID-19 can have an impact on the supply chain and many manufacturers are impacted in some way.

    I would welcome having more information. for example: loading software, burn-in process, final test - where is it in the process? That would seem reasonable?
    Just thinking,

    Hope this photo would answer your question: "what if radio was dropped while loading it on to the UPS truck?"

    Two layers of boxes. The gap between radio and the outer edge is around 5cm for all dimensions.

    The chassis label say "Assemble in USA"
