I think you better re-consider !! Don't the folks in Hawaii go to the 
mainland a couple of times a YEAR and ship everything they need back to 
Hawaii ? That is what I have heard. YOU fly but everything else goes into 
containers ! On a freighter ! Food, clothing, furniture and anything else 
like RADIOS and they come out the other end in a month or so later and you 
rent a truck and bring them home ! Cars might be a different story as a two 
year old Honda might be a very good deal from one of the rental companies ?

mêlée Malacca ........ or whatever :-)

Difficult question, John.  I suppose it would depend on how certain a shack 
is in your future.

In my case, I'll be retiring within the next 4.5 years, and my wife has 
retired already.  We plan on leaving soCal for sure; possibly to the Big 
Island of Hawai'i.  If the latter, we will not be taking much, due to the 
expense of shipping.

Even the earliest of Ten-Tec radios sell very well, and I would expect them 
to do so two years from now.

Of course you're aware of the infamous "seller's remorse" when it comes to 
ham gear.
