Chrismedr, import taxes are waived, as the shipment can be classified as a repair, to be returned after the service. On the customs form, specifiy "return for repair", and I specify "return from repair" when shipping back to you. The cost of shipping has been roughly US$25 worldwide using your country's postal service, YMMV. Those who have chosen to insure shipments, do so for roughly US$600 (enough to make the postal service pay attention and automatically requiring a signature upon delivery). Save shipping weight as much as practical by not including heavy mic enclosures in the package. Thanks for asking.
Life is busy here. Just got thru the 2016 blizzard without a hitch. Our Mules are at an Amish trainer in Kentucky brushing up on their wagon pulling skill and my Donkey is there with them too learning how to pull a cart.
I'm just getting back into work. I had to wait a while for my green card. I'm selling all my 411 receivers to get LR's instead. My bag is too heavy!!!!
