These antennas are in the same league as a automotive GPS. Since they don’t even have the GPS receiver in them, they actually have fewer regulations on them. As such
there are no restrictions on exporting them. That said, I don’t think I would ship anything (even a bottle of milk) to some countries without expecting a hassle. As long as you are shipping to Europe, there should be no problem at all.

The vendor may have such things ironed out, but individuals that step up here may have a hassle to worse to send them to you guys in Europe.
