I realize that this part of this thread is a couple days old, but I 
shoot professional fireworks shows on the side so this past weekend has 
been REALLY busy!  Just getting cought up with my E-Mails....

My solution to the carryon radio problem is to ship it UPS (or FedEx, 
DHL, etc) to the destination.  The only problem I have ever had was 
hotels taking a while to figure out which room to send it to.  That is 
normally solved by calling the desk to advise that the package was 
signed for by <fill in the name> at <fill in the time> and why is it 
that it has not gotten here yet <however much later it is now>?  It's 
amazing how fast they find it after that.  Ain't real time package 
tracking nice!
