I have been looking for an RBI antenna and not having a lot of luck. I could only find a couple of listings. Both were US $90 for the antenna alone. One came up out of stock after I went through the entire ordering process, the other (Amazon) refused to ship to NZ.

Than I discovered a listing at RFShop in Australia. In the past I have not had much luck ordering from that country. Nearly all suppliers have always refused to ship overseas but this one indicated it would. Then I saw the price: AU $75 for the identical item that was listing for US $ 90 everywhere else. 

I completed the transaction using default shipping charges as instructed, then quickly received an emailed invoice with a corrected shipping charge of $36 to my rural address in New Zealand. This brings the total to AU $111, about NZ $122, still well under US and Chinese prices. My order has been accepted and I feel like I got a bargain.

This is my first experience with RFShop so I can't say anything about their other goods but if you are looking for something hard to find or too pricey in NZ, it might be worth giving them a look.

I bought my very first outdoor wifi stuff from these guys back when I lived in Brisbane about 10 years ago. If they are still the same they're fantastic. Highly recommended. You've done well choosing them!

That said, Go Wireless here in nz have also been super helpful with good pricing so I'd always go local first if they have the item (which I assume they don't in your case).
