QRPme UpdateWelcome to the updated website of QRPme. I hope you find it easier to navigate and find the information on orders & QRPme kits that you're looking for.
Kit/Order STATUS Tuesday 3/11/2014:
Due to a combination of events over the last few months, both good and bad, I have been overwhelmed by orders here at QRPme. In the last couple of years, I have negotiated with friends to help with the kitting operation, but each time the deal fell through, so I remained a one man kitting operation. The recent addition of the Rockmite ][ to my lineup has stretched my one man kitting ability to the absolute limit. Addressing the problem, I have found an experienced electronics assembly person who has available time, and I have contracted her to kit ALL the parts bags for Rockmite ][ kits. Also, several “Fans of the Can” have stepped forward offering help and I have taken them up on their offers. I should have 5 more kitters on board by the end of next week. Increased availability of kits will return over the next few weeks, so I hope that I can soon return to the time, not that long ago, when I could fill orders in a matter of days and not weeks. I will keep you posted on developments as they happen.
Rockmite][s: All sub-bags kitted & packing kits into envelopes NOW! I have enough RM][s to fill ALL current orders. Shipping Monday. (Make that Monday & Wednesday) HURRAY! ...SPARE kits all spoken for now! Well, lots of envelopes were addresses but we ran out of time Sunday night trying to get all the orders processed through the online postage software. I got 2 hours of sleep before I had to get up and take my daughter to school. Came home and slept 'till 2pm. Got 1 batch of envelopes to the post office.
MePads & MeSquares: NEW batch of boards in and packing orders now for shipping on Monday.
New batch of MeTubes panels scheduled for delivery on Wednesday so I will get those back orders out the door tomorrow too.
Tuna Can kits: Some can/kits ready to ship but waiting for an order of can lids in order to seal cans for other orders. If you have a tuna can kit order and don't need a sealed can, let me know...I have plenty of previously opened factory fresh cans that I can put your order into and ship PRONTO! DX tuna can kit orders don't ship in a can so they won't be held up for lids.
280 miles of errands in the car today! On the road from 6:30am to 9:30pm so I didn't get another load of kits to the post office today. Did have a final training session with the lady I hired to kit Rockmite ][ kits for me. Handed off a box of parts for 200 kits!! YES, 200 kits! Hope to squelch the supply problem for those kits for a while. She just might tackle a couple of the Tuna Tin 2 kits next. I'll see how it goes.
Working most of the night getting the rest of the Rockmite][ kits into mailers and ready for the post office. Then it is
ACK! 12-18" of snow due to arrive here in Limerick by late tomorrow night...Guess I'll have to spend some time making sure the plow truck is ready for the onslaught! Rex Harper W1REX
