Yes..SteppIR told me 6 to 8 weks..and in 8 weeks I had my product.  


Got this email from Tashjian June 2oth:
    I got the status of your order, It is being manufactured the estimated completion time is 4-6 weeks for it to be ready for shipping. If you have any questions let me know.

Thank you for your patience!"

Got this on July 10th:
    Your Tower was welded and will be going to the galvanizer should be back in two weeks after that it should not take long at all.

Thank you!"

Got this on September 8th:
    Your tower should be going out by the end of September give or take some time as soon as I get the word to book the truck for shipping I will shoot you an e-mail letting you know that it is being shipped. Sorry for the delay and thank you for your patience!"

Karl told me this himself this past Friday Sept 19th (on the phone) 
My tower has NOT been galvanized, nor welded yet, and will not ship in September as he's backed up with Gov orders..and "that's what is paying the bills right now!"

"Tell that to SteppIR and Elecraft.  You will wait months for many of their
products as the demand is far greater than their ability at this time to

Do you really expect a small firm to have one or two of everything they
offer built and ready for shipping at all times?

I would rather wait for a superior product than settle for less because it
was available.

Tashjian should do a better job at communicating a realistic deliver time."
