I have been waiting for mine for ages. Hopefully they can start shipping again soon. I understand things are at a standstill due to the lockdowns in China.

I ordered mine March 30, 2020....

So, my order just had its 2nd birthday.

Hope to receive mine soon.

Fortunately, my Cosmo Communicator is still running/working well.
