At last night's NCCC meeting, one of our club's WRTC participants said he 
had judiciously wrapped his Vibroplex key paddles securely in lots of 
bubble wrap before packing in his suitcase, but when he arrived in PY, it 
was in pieces with the letters "TSA" written on the outside ;-(

When I went to KP2 several years ago, I believe it was TSA folks who 
trashed the locks on my brand new big suitcase that had some radio stuff 
inside (they also got dirty undies on the trip back).

I am definitely for checking ALL contest of ALL bags, but come on now, TSA, 
stop hiring animals to the crew.

FYI & 73...
