ANAN-G2 HF & 6M 100W ULTRA HIGH PREFORMANCE SDR

Postby Carajo » Thu May 11, 2023 1:00 pm

Beside myself who else from the community pre-ordered the ANAN-G2 HF & 6M 100W ULTRA HIGH PERFORMANCE SDR with expected shipping date on 22 May 2023?

Hi Ed,

I ordered one but while I'm hopeful it ships "on time" I'm realistic and don't expect it to.

G2 with front panel 100 watt version...

In the mean time I worked a couple of new South American grids on 6m with my current 7000 MKII yesterday afternoon.

I too ordered a G2-100 watt with screen. Hopeful on date but patiently waiting and playing with my K4D until it shows up.

I ordered one but changed mine to the 1K version which they allowed me to do, so other than the existing 500W orders, I’m in that first group too. Meanwhile my IC-7610 is a workhorse and will keep me going until this arrives. I’m using both radios anyhow when it arrives.

Hi Ed

I purchased one also. I have the high performance without the front panel.

Like a few of the others, I doubt it will be on time, but not worried. I have waited a long time to order an ANAN and now I have, so waiting is no issue.

I’m not sure how many were ordered but I personally know several others who have ordered so I expect the sales to be decent already. I hope they come out relatively soon.

G'day everyone. I initially ordered a 8000DLE-II 500w in December '22, changed to 7000-Mk-III in Mar '23 (changed my mind about needing 500W and was getting impatient waiting, thinking a 7000 might ship faster- hi hi!).

Then when i heard about the new G2, figured i waited this long, might as well sign up for the bleeding edge model and changed my order to a G2-100w NON-Display version in April. Why non-display? Knowing I'd be hooking up an external wide-screen monitor to see the waterfall and screen controls better anyway, figured why pay $500 more when it would be sorta redundant (for me). Sure there's knobs etc. too but i dont need em. i dont miss a screen or knobs with my Flex 6600 (except for using a Flexcontrol knob) so that was my thinking for choosing the non-display G2.

Glad to see the responses for all the future owners of the G2 with or Without Display. I cant imagine how many more have been ordered from Europe and other countries. Well 1 more week till the 22 of May if it all works out for Apache Labs assembled an tested and packaged radios for shipping.
Lets hope.
73 all, if you get your G2 next week please share your opinion of the New Rig.

Paid for the pre-order a few weeks ago because of the 22nd shipping date.
Went for the 100W with display, not tied to Anan as a brand (yet), will cancel if there are any delays but will be happy if they ship when they say they're going to.

No, this was a response to my request for an update on expected delivery. BTW, I made initial payment on the 1st of May.

All the best

Michael,

I haven't received any information about a delay on mine yet. I ordered mine on April 10th.... so I am still optimistic.
Keeping fingers crossed.

I'll believe it when I see it.
By all accounts, people have waited a long time for their radios to arrive and someone's making bank off all these $2000 deposits.
Things are never cut and dry with Anan it seems, either give a solid shipping date or be straight with people.

I must say I am new to the Anan radio system. Like I have mentioned a few times before, I have waited many years to purchase my first SDR setup. Anyone who has been following the Anan series knows that things happen all the time. Development, parts and all sorts of things take time and must be worked out.

A little patience goes a long way.

Personally, I can wait for the issues to be ironed out.

Thanks to the Anan team for a great product and thanks to all who help make them work.

I just ordered on 9/7/2023 after reading "now shipping". I assume everyone that ordered way back in May have received theirs, right?

Has anyone had issues with canceling? To me, "now shipping" means it ships within a day or two of placing a $1000 deposit. Their sites says you get an extra year of warranty if you order by 9/10, now changed to 9/15. Will that date keep changing as well?

If people that ordered in May do not have their G2, then I would assume that mine is not "now shipping", but rather collecting deposits.

I have been. I see an order from July shipped in September, but I most see in this thread the May orders with no updates.

Keep in mind that people get worried and start posting while waiting. But, don't always post an update when they do get notice of shipping or have received their new radios.
You may not see anything more from them unless they encounter problems setting up their new radio.

I see lots of "I ordered on [date]..." but without any mention of specifically what was ordered.

Without specifics we're basically told nothing at all.

Having worked in the electronics manufacturing industry (our purchase volumes were in the 100's of millions of U$D annually) at different levels of the supply chain for many years, I am actually surprised by the fact that Apache-Labs can actually source components, foster supplier relationships and ship products to begin with. :o Apache-Labs hasn't really got a lot of negotiating power nor leverage when it comes to getting parts and components at attractive cost. Sure, you could try working with suppliers that are in the same "tier" with you but then the question becomes when the small guys might go belly-up or provide the quality support your manufacturing team needs. Volume pricing can't be had either when you have NO volume to speak of. Suppliers will give much higher priority to mega buyers and, especially, when you have disruptions in the supply chain things can get sticky in a hurry. And, you can more or less forget about being able to have a supplier expedite parts to your production line. Even if that were possible, you would end up paying two arms and two legs for the expedite! I can also tell that those deposits ain't necessarily helping Apache-Labs much at all as they are really "chicken-feed" in the overall scheme of things. Yes, I know, to us, it seems like all that money is unfairly being taken from us with no concrete progress being reported by the manufacturer of the radios.

The ham-radio market is not even a drop in the bucket, so guess which manufacturers get the attention and priority treatment by component suppliers who have annual volume contracts with major OEMs. ;)

My radio had intermittent issues over a 6 month period ( a VERY lengthy thread on this in another sub-forum) but thanks to Doug's patience and willingness to look into my case (more than once on the same issue) the radio seems to be performing well (almost 2 weeks since I got the radio back). Adding Mark's assistance (local friend who has a 7000 DLE MKII as well) to help ID the defect being in the radio and not my station hopefully made Doug's life a little "easier" too. :)

I am in no way affiliated with Apache-Labs except that I truly value and appreciate the hard and smart work that has been and is being done to crank out products.

Hey, thanks for your reply Juha! I had some guy say you could buy 10 HL2's instead. Come on man. I look forward to getting mine and it seems a July order shipped this month, so my September order may arrive by November. In the mean time, I am using my HL2...just the one.
