    Has anyone successfully moved an amp or receiver from one part of the county (post 9/11) as a carryon item?

    If so, any advice? I don't have anything specific, but I will be traveling a little in a few months and I'm curious to know if this is an option.

    Personal item. The maximum dimensions for your personal item that fits under the seat in front of you, such as a shoulder bag, purse, laptop bag or other small item, are 9 inches x 10 inches x 17 inches (22 cm x 25 cm x 43 cm).

    I just sold a Pilot 248 to AK member hammr7 who placed it in his carry on luggage. He told me the TSA inspectors gave it a very complete look over. He said they swabbed the heck out of it.

    As carry on luggage, if it fits, it ships.

    Personal item is a different deal, as pointed out.

    Since the whole nickel and dime system started and luggage was “extra”, I’ve seen some massive carry on.

    You can put it in its original box if it will fit in the overhead, or a small suitcase. Just be prepared to have it looked at.

    I've carried DVD players and other components that way. They're certainly not prohibited.
