Re: Order and Shipping update from RS & Allied

Now I have a better understanding of Mike's response to my earlier post.

Re: Anyone in the US get a ship date from Newark (Element/14

Ordered mine in Canada on March 3 and the expected shipping date after bouncing around had settled down at June 21. Jenny Peters checked a month ago and posted my shipping date as May 25. My order status has now changed today to June 28.

Problem with the Element 14 update is they aren't specific in their reference to the "second batch". IMO more likely to be part of the 8,000 than their own new production run
