I have an idea (not original) to share with FRS. You know the forum is always having people ask questions about status and everybody guesses. Maybe you all could implement something like I found at the following website for the LP-700 station monitor. He uses a pdf file that is protected from editing and certain fields hidden except if you enter your call sign or first part of your email address. It would save many calls to you and the team.

I am going to purchase one and after entering my call sign it shows where in the check I stand. Maybe you could implement something like this for FRS. Here are some pics. I am currently at 229 waiting.

The product names could also be hidden at the top and just assign something like Type 1 or Type 2. If you want.

Hi Ray

Your idea is a good one and we have considered it once upon a time.  However, we have found that anything that is posted in public is immediately attacked upon by the Social Media Trolls. :)

Most hams are great and very understanding, but I have seen others that will turn that around and spend a lot of time using that data to deliver bad news.

It is for that reason that we have a policy of not publicly publishing things unless we can make that target.  

It isn't just us, it is every other manufacturer as well.
