New PM, receive PMUs when?

Newly minted PM this weekend. Will I receive the PMUs (6 correct?) this year, or do I have to wait until Feb '10 (in which case I would only receive 4?)? If this year, how long does it usually take to receive them? I would like to proceed with issuing ticket and confirming upgrades for a TPAC in May while there is currently availability.

You will get 6 PMUs that are good through Feb 28, 2011. Most here report that it takes 4+ weeks for the kit to arrive. Block the space now and tell them PMUs are on the way.

Thanks xeno. I have read several threads where there is discussion whether the PMUs are needed at the time of booking/ticketing or whether they would be pulled at a later date, such as check-in. The problems seem to arise with DL code sharing on NW metal and which airline issues the ticket, so I'll call DL again to make sure all of the u/g are confirmed before the ticket is issued.
6 PMUs in 2009 (good DL) vs 4 PMUs in 2010 (bad DL).
