Anybody else notice the 996XT being backordered at their preferred vendor?
Mine normally has like 5-10 but none left for the last month.

A quick check of eBay shows only 1 for sale (because it's a ridiculous price $590).

Maybe just everybody bought them up for Christmas gifts (nothing wrong with that).

I'll check scanner master and others next

Scannermaster shows in- stock so maybe it's just my vendor or SM had a lot of stock heldover from before.

ScannerMaster must have just gotten them. They and Amazon were out from when I started checking for Santa in early Nov. until after Christmas. Had to refer him to some obscure (to me anyway) electronics site in NY, which I was sceptical of until I checked them out a little bit. Lucky for me they had a few, now I have one too!

I ordered one from Scannermaster last night (Sunday) for overnight delivery. Its 11:00 PM Monday and I still haven't received a shipment confirmation. Hoping it shows up tomorrow anyway.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I saw a note saying they werent shipping the 996XT
until the 5th (today now)

"Orders placed between now and Tuesday January 5th will ship on January 5th."

Hmm this note is NOT on the 396XT or the 346XT or any other scanner I see... let the conspiracy theories begin. jk

I just got off the phone with Scannermaster. Won't ship today either it is now backordered. The person I talked to told me they expected them tomorrow but sounded very unconvincing. Uniden site shows the scanner on "Waiting List" status. He mentioned nobody else has it in stock at the moment.

I saw that line about them shipping on the 5th as well, but I could have sworn that wasn't there on Sunday when I placed the order, maybe they were expecting them to come in today.

Thank you! That confirms what I thought even though it's says "in-stock" online the whole time.
Guess scanner master is keeping the "in-stock" listing on the site so more people order from them.

I'd ask them for free shipping you paid for next day now your waiting 2+ days more then that to even ship... They said in stock yet it's not true.
