[amsat-bb] Why RFMD parts have export restrictions ?

It has been some time ago that I worked on my mini-transponder again.
Most of you might have seen the article about my 30grams linear Mode-UV :o)

For my tests I purchase very often parts from Digikey in US, with high quality parts and fast deliveries. However, for some time I experience problems with getting parts from RFMD, which seem to have a "vendors export restriction". The strange thing is that I got the parts delivered around November 2008, but faced problems when I tried to order new parts begin this year.

Does anyone know what the reasons might be for these restrictions ?
And is there any way to get the parts to Europe without to much hassle.

Many thanks,
