To confirm with my experience:

I have ordered two RAK at different times from 
InnovAntenna* in the UK (best price I've found) 
and the equipment shipped from Poland, directly.

*Cheaper than either US or CA sales outfits even 
with shipping costs from Poland.  Bought my two 
G0KSC designed LFA2 WOS 7-element 6m yagis from them.
