A well-connected ham with a strong business management background in the Virgin 
Islands from whom I bought a Titan amp STRONGLY advised against using Parcel 
to get from him to me in Chicago. Count on anything you ship that way sitting 
on a dock 
under who knows what conditions for most of the transit time.  

FedEx and UPS both have online calculators to quote their rates and shipping 
times. I 
would use one of them if they go there, or Priority Mail. UPS and FedEx don't 
go to VI, 
so Priority Mail is what I used for the Titan, which, with its power supply, 
was HEAVY. I 
thought the cost was reasonable considering the weight. Don't know about KH6.
