Building a prototype is a whole different arena than mass production. Thanks to the large interest from all over the world, I am scaling up this production run, so keeping all the parts in a big box just wont do it anymore. 

Since every single part is needed before I can start to ship every kit, inventory management is something I am slowly developing, using classic lean management techniques. There are lots of bottlenecks to solve still, but being able to produce five times as much in the same time frame is a big accomplishment for me. Hopefully you have the patience to wait a little bit longer before I can meet the demand. 

Getting the product in the hands of amazing satellite enthusiasts and ham radio operators is my main priority. And I am loving every second of it...
