I understand units shipped in April will be coming with a perpetual energy source, so no need to purchase optional battery.

APRIL does not speak for Flex. You will hear it here from Flex first. I would think!

April QST is not out yet. That is not what I asked.

Jim was probably making a JOKING reference to the "April Fools" article we often see in QST. :-)

George, I wondered how long it would take for someone to realize that.  You get FIRST PRIZE!  I always look forward to the "Build it yourself" April Fool's article in QST.  :D  73, Jim K0UNX

I suspect you'll hear it first on here with the high pitched choir of uncontained exuberance and the verbal tears of passionate joy with becons of 'let us all get together on freenode to discuss our new toys'.

I suspect we may see pre-order shipments start a few weeks before Dayton.  That timing would  allow good reviews to circulate and could lead to big sales at the Hamvention.

I think you're correct. May seems like when it's going to happen. It will make 1 year in June that I put down a down payment. I've thought of cancelling it a couple of times.

I'm hoping that Flex's silence so far and that they have kept the "shipping first quarter 2016" means that they still believe that it will ship in March.  At least that is what I hope it means.  If it does not, then I hope they tell us as soon as they know that it will not and not to spring it on us March 31.  I'm hoping it is in March.  May the force be with Flex.

We anticipate beginning Maestro shipments in mid-April barring any unforeseen issues with the remaining software development for the initial release of SmartSDR for Maestro.
