µBitx and Bitx40 transceivers are shipped by Paradigm E-commerce Pvt. Ltd (HF Signals) using either India Post or DHL at the choice of the purchaser. Shipping via DHL costs US$10 extra.
UK and Canadian purchasers are advised to ship using India Post as DHL charge additional fees to customers before delivery can be made (a processing fee and/or customs fee).
Shipping via DHL normally takes no more than a week to anywhere in the world. Full tracking is available via the DHL website.
Shipping via India Post typically takes up to four weeks, depending on the destination. India Post can only provide tracking information within India. No tracking is available once the parcel leaves India. Enquiries about undelivered goods should be addressed to Paradigm E-commerce Pvt. Ltd.
It is understood that at this time shipping of the BITX40 is normally completed within a few days of placing an order. However, the µBitx is in hot demand, and is only available on pre-order, but at the discounted price of $US109 (plus an additional US$10 if shipped via DHL).
The µBitx was released on 8 December 2017, and pre-prepared stock (Batch 1) was sold out in just two days. Shipping of the first batch was completed prior to Christmas 2017. Since 10 December 2017, the µBitx has been sold on a pre-order basis. Batch 2 has shipped as soon as the kits have been assembled and tested. There was a temporary delay due to a worldwide shortage of 30-2 toroids.
From the time you place a pre-order on the HF Signals website, you can expect to wait around 1-2 months for delivery via DHL. If you ship using India Post, delivery will take a bit longer.
