My priority number is >2000, so I expect to be waiting a few more years unless somebody decides that Blitzortung needs a LOT of stations, and System Blue is reliable hardware.

If getting thousands of boards produced is a matter of cash flow, use IndieGoGo, or Crowd Supply to produce them in quantity.

I don't think it will be that long.... remember that a good portion of those on list will NOT actually follow up and request a system! 
 If it were otherwise we'd have the world covered by now... Wink

Production runs are not necessarily a matter of cash flow... that's 'easily' resolved... and a minor factor...
This is a 'living' 'evolving' 'scientific' project, not a consumer off-the-shelf bells, beeps, and lights gizmo.
...keep in mind this is an educational,. experimental scientific network characterized as 'hobbyist',
and changes and refinements are a part of that process toward perfection...
...generally expect most production runs will have a minor 'improvement' or component modification from the previous.
...and delivery of the factory assemblies is just the beginning of a time consuming process of checking and programming each board individually,
assembling the order and shipping it.

Stations: 689, 791, 1439, 3020
