[CQ-Contest] Shipping equipment abroad

I need to ship a transceiver to a fellow ham involved in contesting in
Poland. The rig, a 940SAT, weighs about 50 lbs. The local Post Office
tells me that there's a weight limit of 33 lbs. on anything going to
Poland. UPS tells me that it would cost an arm and a leg to send it
through them. Could anyone who has shipped equipment abroad provide some
guidance and suggestions? Tnx.

BTW: given the interest abroad in used equipment from the States, it
looks like the competition will be even tougher in the future, or more
