I travel in the US and Canada about 4 or 5 times a year and always carry my
HT and batteries in my carry-on luggage.  Surprisingly, I've never been
asked anything about my HT or spare batteries.

I take my Arrow on some of these trips but it has always been in checked
luggage.  One time there was a TSA luggage inspection card in my luggage
when I arrived at my destination, but no problem.

I do like the idea of packing a photocopy of my full license in with the
antenna and maybe a note that says "amateur radio antenna for satellite

Has anyone had luck with transporting an HT on a commercial flight in 
their carry on luggage recently?  I doubt I'd have much luck with 
transporting an arrow antenna in my carry on.  Any thoughts?
