Use as small a package as possible.  Instead of placing stamps on it,
mail it from your local post office, and ask them to place a postage
meter on it.  You might try sending it via registered mail with a return
receipt so that the person it is sent to will sign this receipt
indicating that it was delivered to them.  I have had better success
using registered mail for my reception reports to African stations than
via regular airmail, so I am presuming that my use of the above technique
has inhibited the desire for someone to steal  my report looking for
something of value inside.

Some, if not most (or even all) of the Global delivery services such as
United Parcel Service, Federal Express, etc. offer service to many parts
of the World.  You might check if they would ship to RTZ, although it
will certainly be much higher cost than sending anything through the
