Backlog disappearing?

  • Question
  • Updated 11 months ago
With our club nearing purchase of a new radio - I wanted to check to see how - or is - the backlog of the 6600M getting along, as in if we ordered one say in mid April, what would be the expected time before receipt of the radio. I know that questions like this tend to get a "It'll happen when it happens" answer, and if need be, I will give that answer when I present my recommendation to the rest of the BOD. Which could have an influence on their decision.  But I have to make some equipment decisions on some items we plan on selling or keeping, depending on availability of the new radio.

ordered my 6600M Feb 17 and have not heard anything yet. 
I think I seen a 6600 that was ordered in December being shipped this past week if that helps

I'm sure that it is worth the wait as others have commented every other Flex I have purchased has been WELL worth it.

Ordered my 6600M on 01/31/2018 and it was delivered by UPS yesterday. 03/30/2018. I traded in my 6500 when I ordered the 6600M.

Yes, the backlog is reducing every day, however, it is not the same rate for all models.  The time between your order and delivery is getting less, however it will be a while before we are to the point where we have immediate stock on the shelves as our sales continue to be strong for all models.
