I just ran a quick calculation on the UPS web site to ship a 20 pound box,
45x45x8 inches from Los Angeles to NY.  $115 by UPS ground, and they did
calculate by dimensional weight (80 pounds!) plus the oversize surcharge.

Dimensional weight (pounds) = L * W * H / 194

And the trouble, if I recall correctly, is that the Isoloop radiator is welded to the tuning capacitor to reduce losses, so taking it apart would not be possible.
