Please make sure to get in touch with Hector *before* anything is sent

is required before the radio can be legally imported in Cuba.  See:


The following link (in Spanish) from Cuban Customs:


backs up what is explained in English on the first link.

I'm no lawyer, and no expert on Cuban law or customs regulations, but
let's make sure we don't put Hector in hot water unintentionally.  With
that said, maybe there is a way a radio like this one can get down there
so Hector can have an easier time working the FM birds.
