Thanks all for the replies. I realize that you all are working hard and promoting the latest. When I couldn't find the RPi support with one look, in frustration I ordered the C.H.I.P. at the same instant all became aware of the supply problems.
I got the RPi Librarian working fine and of course things changed immediately.
CHIP announced multiple things and I'm not trying to understand it all immediately because they are in flux. But they have announced they will ship my CHIP soon. I think they have lost a supplier.
I think you've made the best decision to move beyond all these functional prototypes (smouldering festering heaps of rubble) and rolling your own package which is everything inside the LNA.
I'm not making a permanent implementation until then.
I'm using OUTERNET and its trajectory in digital communication classes and with graduate students at Virginia Tech. Being the founder of two startups (Federated Wireless and Hawkeye 360) and both doing digital communications and loads of SDR gives me an appreciation for all you are doing with what you have.
