Feb. 10th — Lead time on shipping Analog/Partyline ClearCom products is estimated at 16-18 weeks * once the factory is given an order (which will also secure your place in line).
This longer than normal lead time is a result of the global chip shortage, and affects all manufacturers. Clear-Com is constantly working to source new components. Unfortunately, the underlying chip shortage is likely to continue into 2023. While we all hope its resolved sooner, we encourage customers to plan for extended lead times.
* Due to the rapidly changing situation, lead time can change within hours of an update. Sometimes it can be extended due to supply chain issues like delayed/missing packages of critical parts.
