I ship VNA calibration kits across the Atlantic almost every week -
admittedly in the other direction.  It doesn't cost me anything like what
Minicircuits charge.

I regularly buy thins sent via Fedex, UPS and DHL, and don't pay so much to
ship what must be less than 2 kg - possibly less than 1 kg.

I suspect that the "handling" part of the charge is the real problem.

Dave.
