Or maybe the regulations, red tape, and customs paperwork make it much more difficult to track an international shipment due to having to switch carriers at the border in some cases. Try ordering something from China and see what kind of tracking you get before the package enters the destination country.

I can read and you would have the same problem with Whistler on shipping.

UPMAN replied to 1 of my posts ( #'s 1559..1565..1569) on April 26th telling me that my radio was going to be shipped that day.

Well, what I said was "Your scanner is in line to be shipped back to you, today." meaning that as of that day is was in line to be shipped, not that it would ship that day (although I can certainly understand that it sounded like it). I got that information from the Repair Status page that you had access to...and worded it the way I did because I'd basically cut/pasted that status from the repair status page without thinking too much about editing for more clarity (I'll try to remember to fix the ambiguity on future similar updates). Not sure why you could not see that status update. I have no "secret" way to get an update beyond what you can see, so it should have been available and visible to you.


Caleb does not have any ability to see the tracking number from TX to Canada. He can see only the same repair status page that you have access to (and that I have access to). Of course, the shipment is tracked to Canada, but our system only allows for a single tracking number on a repair record, so we put the tracking number that tracks to your door. If a shipment were to go missing on its way to Canada, our repair shipping desk would have the information necessary to track it through the carrier.

Question re, `436HP, "your unit has been shipped" email of 5/9/2018 and a question.

Intresting development on my `436HP which i sent in for repair of the RTC battery, yesterday (5/9/2018) i recieved an email that read, "your unit has been shipped, please check the main status page for tracking number, if availible". Intrestingly enough, i did check that main status page (the repair status page actually) and it STILL reads, "4/20/2018 your unit has been recieved." So, there`s no tracking number unfortunately. Only things i can think of that this means is one, my scanner has shipped already (meaning it`s somewhere in transit) and the it beat the email to me), or two, my scanner is in line to be shipped and this is just the default email that is sent out regardless of wether it`s actually, so to speak, on the racks and being loaded on the truck to be shipped or still sitting waiting to be put on an outbounder for shipping. Ether way this is what i call from work an ineffiency, they`ve told me my scanner has been shipped, but provide no tracking number so i can actually see if my unit is on it`s way back to me, like i said, intresting. Question for the scanner geeks on here, can i take the SD card from my (somewhere in shipping limbo) `436HP and pop it into a new `436HP? Reason i ask is i`m thinking on snagging another unit as a backup to this `un in case i have to send it in again (hopefully not, fingers crossed). Also, are the DMR & NXDN keys i purchased stored on the scanner or the SD card? If they`re in the scanner it`s no biggie, i`ll just repurchase `em, if they`re on the SD then we could have a problem when i put the card in the (backup) scanner as the keys won`t match the new unit. Thoughts? Thanx! N9NRA

I just looked and it shows a tracking #. Maybe you were looking at a cached page?

Scheduled Delivery:

Monday, 05/14/2018 , By End of Day

Last Location:

Departed - Ft Worth, TX, United States, Thursday, 05/10/2018

(from UPS tracking page)

You'll need to re-enter the original upgrade keys (new logic board is part of the repair, but it is set to the original ESN/Checksum, so the original keys still work).

You can pop in the SD card.

It has not yet been received by repair. That means, while it may have been delivered to the building, it has not yet been logged in by the repair department (the repair department resides as a tenant in the building and packages are not necessarily delivered daily). This does not delay repair, it just delays logging. There is always a queue of items in for repair...as items are logged in, they are added to the queue.

So a question for Paul -- touched my 536 for the first time in a long time recently and noticed (and was reminded) that because of the defects, it now has a "3 year warranty".... this made me wonder -- since both the 436 and 536 were sent in and repaired at the same time under this program, does the 436 also have that 3 year warranty (and are these 3 years warranties from the date of purchase or the date of repair)?
