   I can surely second that caution - if you want it sent, unwrapped,in a 
single-wall el-cheapo, half-taped cardboard box 3/4 filled with styrofoam 
peanuts - well, go ahead.

   And as for what the local "UPS Store" wants for this 'service' (not to 
mention then handing it over to the UPS Gorilla Team) - I'd just as soon 
take a half-hour and do the packing myself.  Pretty much the same can be 
said for "FedEx/Kinkos" - if you can find one that will actually offer 
pack - ship.

   Of course, to give credit where due - they are not supposed to be expert 
electronic packers.  But, still - either do it properly yourself 
or locate a packing / crating / shipping service that can handle delicate 
radio stuff.  If I knew a nation-wide place, I'd list the name, but I 
always pack my own shipments - and I've sent fairly big Stuff all over the
