Hi Rick,

	If I'm not too late, I would also like one - or preferably 
two.  I am in England, so PayPal would be easiest for me, as the bank 
charges quite a bit for Dollar cheques.  However, if PayPal is not 
convenient for you, I will use whatever method you prefer.

	I have imported quite a lot of equipment from the USA with no 
problems.  There is a tick-box marked "Gift", and a description of 
"used (or surplus) amateur radio equipment" would seem fine.  A $1 
value also seems justifiable given that they are un-guaranteed 
prototypes.  Being relatively lightweight and in a small box, I doubt 
customs will give them a second look.
