Sources in Russia are reporting the following news from Lab599 about the current shipping status of the TX-500 HF transceiver:

“Retail sales of the TX-500 transceiver from the factory are currently suspended. First of all, this is due to the fact that Lab599 is a production company - the development and production of new products is a priority for us, and it is in this direction that we would like to continue development. Now we are negotiating cooperation with retailers of radio equipment in Russia, and in the future, our company’s products can be purchased from an official distributor. As soon as the organizational issues are resolved, we will publish information about the distributor on our website in the purchase section. Secondly: we are also affected by the global shortage of components and there are certain difficulties with supplies and the associated decrease in production volumes.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this and thank you for your understanding.”
