'[OT]: smuggling fun toys'

The list was talking about smuggling at one point.

I found this device which is something I want.  Delivery is only  
allowed in
the U.K.

sr%3D8-5/ref%3Dsr%5F8%5Fxs%5Fap%5Fi5%5Fxgl/202-9004935-0115011
or GOOGLE [  i.Tech BlueCon 35 - Bluetooth Hi-Fi Dongle  ]   also          
[  i.Tech S35 - Bluetooth Clip Headset  ]

Why is this device only delivered to the UK ?
How can I get one and what will happen to me when I do ?

pathetically located in Denver, CO

Probably because laws concerning permissible radio bands and
powers are one of the things that vary a great deal from one
country to another, and that set has only been licensed/tested
to meet UK regulations.  As another example, there are those
miniature remote controlled cars that were pretty popular a
couple of years ago.  The cheap import models were available
in four frequencies, so you could race up to four at a time.
Too bad only two of the frequencies were "legal" in the US...

(and another example of the sorts of laws one might run up
against if offering a cross-the-border delivery service.  If
you're an individual shipping a gift that isn't legal (or
won't work) across a border, you're probably ok.  If you've
achieved the status of an "importer" or "exporter", you're
probably liable for fines.)

FCC Form 740 that must accompany "each radio frequency device, as defined
in 47 U.S.C. 302 and 47 C.F.R. 2.801, which is imported into the
Customs territory of the United States."

Getting a "grant of equipment authorization" from the FCC may not be cheap.

There have been some instances of "long range cordless" (miles!) telephones
showing up on the Amateur Radio bands in the US.
