Tech: Another gripe

So awhile back I ordered a Texas Instruments eZ430-Chronos-433 sports watch development kit. That 433 at the end, it’s the frequency in MHz. 433MHz falls right in the amateur radio 70cm band. I told TI I hold a valid license for operation in the amateur bands too.

I get a notice of backorder from a jobber firm, Harte Hanks. I reply that they can substitute the 866MHz unit but get no response. So here I go, don’t order from Texas Instruments. That is, unless you want your product back ordered or you don’t expect a response back from their order fulfillment house.
