This Kiwi forum post has some news about Kiwi production status. TL;DR they should be restocked at Seeed again by Feb 20. http://valentfx.com/vanilla/discussion/comment/6082/#Comment_6082 John, KiwiSDR

Seeed says the Kiwi will be back in stock at Seeed on March 31. Hopefully that means a Massdrop could happen soon thereafter.

Today (April 25/26) the Kiwi kit version is finally back in stock in quantity at Seeed. So the estimated May 3 ship date for the drop seems achievable. Someone please post here when you receive a shipment notification.

i believe a major reason why shipping for this Kiwi takes a long time may have to do with the recently imposed tariffs, i will also be waiting a long time (one month) just to get a Cisco RV340W WLAN Router shipped to me as its not stocked anywhere in the US.

For anyone looking for a nice 5vdc linear power supply (recommended by KiwiSDR) check out eBay and search for "Acopian 5EB150" or "Acopian 5EB200". These are really nice, USA made, industrial AC-to-DC 5vdc linear supplies. They go for well over $100 new but can be found for $30-50 on eBay. A nice alternative to the "audiophile" Chinese-made units that KiwiSDR recommends (granted, there aren't a lot of options, so I see why they do) and actually maybe a little cheaper.
You'll have to hack an extension cord and still locate a 2.1mm plug to wire up to the terminal strips on the supply but otherwise, these things look great.

Is the GPS signal accessible over the network somehow? Wondering if I can use this to make a time server.

Not at the moment. Code would have to be added to make it NTP compatible. A good project for someone! lol

Some update on revised shipping date might be nice... What is it the global SMD cap supply issue?

Was the supply not regulated? I guess not :)
I've got a PowerOne regulated linear supply. Good for 5A at 5V, I see the Kiwi takes a 2.1 mm plug, so assuming I can find one of those in my collection of parts... I should be all set. I ran some tests with a homebrew splitter I made, the loss is as expected, so I think I can live with the KiwiSDR connected to my 670 ft sky loop antenna, and not adversely affect my own use it it (normally it is connected to the netSDR, I run overnight recordings with it). My goal is to try and put a decent SDR online.

The supply was a home brew (not me) and I think it goes to 30V, at 5V is using a small part of the pot so may have just crept up (internals warmed up or something) not sure, but as most variable bench supplies don't stop at just over 5V I'd prefer to run a crowbar next time. I've a variable 10A Watson Linear (max 15V) that will do 5V with a much more solid control, but again would be nice to know if the voltage pot got knocked the supply to the Kiwi would cut.
I look forward to your Kiwi online, I use mine mainly as a learning tool as the local man-made noise is so variable over the day (powerline networking, DSL and bad power supplies mainly). I've enjoyed using the full HF span of the Kiwi waterfall and spectrum display as a test device for various attempts at noise reduction, much more immediate feedback than other methods and can be done on a phone or tablet at the antenna. I absolutely would have given up on radio (again) at this location without the progress the Kiwi, garden spade, shielded CAT5E, earth rods and LZ1AQ active antennas have afforded me.

I wish I could pay more for Massdrop to use a better shipment method. They will ship in 5 weeks and then I expect to wait for 2 weeks for the package to cross the USA ;=(

It would be nice to have the aluminum case as an add-on. Just ordered it from Seeed Studio with $5 for shipping. Now the big question is will the KiwiSDR be here before the case or will I get the case first :)

I am disappointed by the choice of shipper. It will take 2 weeks for my order to travel from NJ to CA. I wish I could have paid extra for USPS 2nd day or other 'normal' shipment options.
