Airport security at LEEDS very thorough, when my equipment passed the xray machine all the lights and buzzers went off because of one dangerous looking item. I had to unpack one bag and the suspect item was my MORSE key. They had not encountered one of these devices before. One the way back at FARO airport the security xray light up just the same flashing lights etc but the man just waved me on, he obviously knows all about amateur radio and morse keys !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice to work you on voice on 80m for the first time Mal.

FB on the security.  I find that the X-ray machines hate the solid metal base of some morse keys. Apparently the density of block of Semtex has a similar effect on the image displayed on the security monitors.
