Expected to be Available  in Mid-April!!!!!  The first batch will only be 50 devices and these 50 will be discounted to $99.99! After the first batch the price will go to the normal price of $124.99.

Note:

Pictures shown are of an Alpha prototype and will be updated once production devices are ready.  Production devices will have a slightly different internal setup than what is shown.  Changes include switching to a 4 x 18650 battery pack, from SMA to Type N antenna, and by using a connector to the PCB for the power illumination instead of directly soldering it.  The USB-C pass through is also changing from two parts (pass through and short USBC cable) to a single integrated part.
