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 communications".

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?
