It's a fast and changing world and it appears I cannot write things quick enough at the game of Amateur Radio Blogging!
Tony G4WIF has just pointed me to the price of $109 for the uBitx and a new website!
I have just read what Asharr Farhan has said on the BITX20 group. The price will rise to $129 after Christmas, due to production costs, hiring more people etc.
Of course I have just ordered mine!

Hope you all enjoy getting one just as much as I enjoy writing about these things.
