I have always laid the "big" ones (FT-817, CCRadio) out in a tub for them
to look at, the first couple of times having not done so wound up with a
swab and a some questions.  Having them exposed seems to have eliminated
that so far.  The HTs and wall warts and such I left in my "radio" bag,
nothing has been said about them although it gets the random swab or peek
once in a great while.
