Hi Denis,
I think best idea ist to call/write NBTC first and ask about the regulations. My experince a few years ago was that I even needed a written allowness from them to import spare parts for my Optibeam. If that regulation is still existing than you need their papers first BEFORE you send your parts to Thailand. Otherwise you will get much problems with customs!
Sorry, but I can't remember how much tax I had to pay. Sure ist that you have to pay the 7,3% additional to the import fee.
If they catch you at customs with the antenna parts in your luggage without  import papers you will have much troubles also. Better clear everything with NBTC first to be on the secure site. 
Just my advice!!!
