R: Airline Carryon



Kenneth,

I have bought an arrow antenna (the portable 2m/70cm) when I was in Orlando
for the STS-88 launch with Sergei Krikalev.
The radials were in the checked bag and the boom (too long for the bag) as a
carry-on bag.
At the check-in I have been forced to pack the boom with paper and tape and
on board I gave it to the hostess.
But that time was before Sep.11 and now I think it is better to send the
complete antenna in the checked bag.
For that now I modified the boom in two sides as specified at

Maybe your solution...

Any advise for carrying on an arrow antenna or should that just be packed in
some hard sided luggage?
