Hi there,

I'm in Ireland and looking at the complete PCI Max kit from PCS (transmitter, booster & PSU). However I'm not sure of the legalities of sending something like this through the post

I was wondering are there any issues I should know regarding shipping items like this to the EU, i.e. are there ever problems?
Is it possible to have them sent through ordinary mail or are they sent by courier?
If I ordered the PCI Max card on its own, could this be sent through ordinary mail?
Finally will the box have a big sticker on the outside saying "Transmitter"

We are based in EU, it does not go through any customs.

The card is shipped in a plain box and sent registered mail to the U.S.

The registered mail is a bit of a nuisance... i tend not to be around to sign for these things and it causes a lot of hassle.
It's a shame it doesn't come in ordinary mail... although I understand about the risk of sending valuables through the post etc


Anyway, 2 further questions:

1. Is it possible to connect the PCI Max to a laptop; or is there any possibility of a laptop-compatible PCI Max coming out in the future?

2. Would the amplifier be counted technically as a transmitter? If not, then a licence wouldn't be needed for it

You can use the external LED module for a laptop, however it would be really nice if someone invented an external enclosure for PCI cards. It would be something like a USB 2.0 interface and a box for your extra PCI cards.

As far as licensing, the amplifier's output would be what gets licensed. Unless you mean just to have the thing, then no.

As to being able to run this from a laptop, I think I have a solution. Well... actually this may depend on your laptop.

I'm having to do things one step at a time. My financial advisor (aka live-in girlfriend) is unaware of my broadcasting tendencies. I haven't ordered the pci max yet, but I have ordered a docking station for my IBM laptop. The docking station has one slot that includes a half-size PCI slot (for desktop cards) . In fact, I ordered this specifically for this purpose. Will it work? I will not know until I have ordered the pci-max card and probably will not know until the end of the year.

Of course, if anyone else here has the capabilities to try this out, then I'm sure that a lot of us would be interested.
