[TowerTalk] Tashjian Tower Orders

"Months" is not a reasonable delivery cycle for a product.  This obviously implies the product is built one by one, to order, and there is a long queue preceding each.

That's unfortunate, because it is a good product but I certainly wouldn't wait "months" for one.  When buying anything I always ask not for what I want, but for what the vendor has.  "What do you have that you could ship tomorrow?"

I guess I'm used to that being in the industry I'm in, where 24 hours lead time is unacceptably long and multimillion dollar contracts are won and lost based on who can ship in 12 hours instead.

You certainly didn't get that from me.  As I said, mine came on time
and took less than 6 months from the time I first talked to Karl about
my tower plans until the time it arrived at my door.  Where did you
get the 1 to 2 year idea?
