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
