IRCA,

I have not traveled with a laptop in some time. I usually take a
tablet. I have to fly soon with my laptop. Do you carry on and if so
do they want you to fire it up at the security desk? Or do you check it
in you suitcase?

Any and all advice will be appreciated. I check the radios well packed
and padded in my suitcase.

You can email me off line so as not to clog the mailing list.

Thanks,

Steve

I fly several times a year with a bag full of radios (usually two Tecsun
PL380s, five C. Crane Witnesses, etc.), recorders, a DSLR and a laptop.

I've never been asked to turn any of them on. Often they don't even open
the bag.

Having said that - I have TSA PreCheck status tied to my NEXUS border card.
I understand there are some new procedures going into place in the
non-PreCheck lanes.

TP DX in Seattle on 22 Feb  View Printable Version 
Friday, February 23 2018

By coincidence I was testing out a brand new TSA-friendly 89mm (3.5 inch) FSL antenna at 1220 in the predawn darkness, and had various S9 peaks from 972-HLCA on the tiny antenna, as well as S7 peaks from 594-JOAK and some weak audio from 657-Pyongyang. By 1400 all of these had fizzled out, though, and further DXing was foregone.

972-HLCA Dangjin, S. Korea First TP-DX received (at a powerful level) on a new "Baby FSL" in the snow-covered back yard at 1220

Weird here in Grayland too Bruce. Difference being that the morning ended with oddly good Aussie reception. Heard the ABC news theme on 837 @ 1700! Kind of unusual, no?

Not sure what else is on the wav files but I suspect more of the same.

Asian reception was quite unremarkable.

I think Nick had similar conditions up in Gabriola.
