I just returned from a trip to South America (left the day before things 
went nuts and got back on Saturday).  I would say that I had no more than 
the routine amount of hassle.  (Other than checking bags, which I guess is 
necessary now if you wish to exhibit good hygiene.)

I carried the radio, headset, and Bencher, in carry-on; antenna, coax, DK9SQ 
pole, and power supply checked.  I got stopped to explain the radio and 
key at every opportunity.  But, "radioaficion(ado)" and "llave de 
telegrafia; se lo muestro" dispelled all worries.  I did get the key and 
radio "swabbed" at DFW.  But, I've gotten that many times before at MSP.
