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.

>> I can't accept money for these units.
