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
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.
