Carry-On for Airlines

Here is a link to the PDF file available at http://www.tsa.gov concerning 
permitted and prohibited items. Electronics and radios are not covered as 
either permitted or prohibited. 

By perusing the list you will see that the concern is for hazardous chemicals 
and explosives as well as sharp and self defense items. 


Of course, any screener can deem any item dangerous and not allow you to take 
it. At that point, I would ask to speak to a supervisor. They must also speak 
to you with dignity and respect. If they don't, get their name and report them 
to a supervisor after you have completed going through the screening. I have 
had to do that on several trips. They don't make sport of passengers playing 
around and they don't like their employees to be unprofessional.
