The voyage to California still took place against the background of the inconceivable Terrorist Attack to the World Trade Center Towers in New York City 2 years ago. The security check at the airports were very time-consuming, especially in San Francisco! But I had no problems with my 10 m fiberglas mast posted as bulky good (fishing rod). My rig and accessories were stored in the suitcase. Radio equipment in the cabin was strictly forbidden by the airline solely the LapTop was allowed with the baggage. Of course all the equipment was declared in official clearance papers. Well prepared I avoided trouble!
