Ok no worries.
I usually include shipping in my ads, when I sell off and upgrade my gear, so, HI and AL is usually a bit more [sometimes much more] than standard CONUS shipping.
If someone is interested in HI or AL shipping, and real serious, they will usually contact, etc.[but its rare]
I tell you though, I sent an amplifier a few months ago out to Texas, southern Texas, and because it was a hole in the wall just after the cattle creek and underneath the canyon, it cost $150 to ship a 55 pound/$1000 amplifier to him!
Anyways, thanks again for the reply to the posts, this is a great site to post, wish I had known about it before-
