I finally gave up on the bullet connectors coming from China. I purchased them from Amazon and didn’t realize that they were actually shipping from China (the company name was “blah-blah”-USA so I assumed it was shipping from the US. After waiting 4 weeks I looked at the Amazon description again and at the very bottom it said the part may be sourced from China.
I reordered from someone on eBay (in the US) and had them in a few days.
I thought the radio was being sourced from the US too. I received it yesterday in about a week, but it was from China. That, too, was purchased on Amazon. I didn’t see anything in the description it was coming from China, but it was quick so it doesn’t really matter.
I never really thought about it before, but if the Federal Government forces vendors to collect sales tax in states in which they don’t have a presence, those companies just might move off-shore.
So I should be able to get started on the build this week! Pictures to follow.
