I recently saw some posting about carry cases for the FT-897. Some folks
mentioned carrying the unit on a plane. I am curious if you get any hassles
from TSA folks?

I use the PortaPak over the shoulder/backpack for carrying the 897 and
accessories. I just traveled from MIA to Buenos Aires 2 weeks ago and was
very surprised that the backpack went thru the TSA "strangle" points and
Xray machines with absolutely no hitch. They did not even ask me to open the
pack or ask what was in it. I do always carry my FCC license along with the
operating manual in the backpack just in case.
You should not have any problems.
