I will let you know Wednesday... Unless someone else has tried.
However, I'm taking the shipping box that it came in, just in case it's a no-no at the counter.

Only thing that -might- be an issue is the battery. Not sure what the current state of affairs is on allowing certain kinds of cells to fly.

Yes, I have done it successfully.  I remove the batteries and I put it in a bin to be scanned like a laptop.  I also have my FCC radio license available to show if needed.

I have also put it in a Pelican case and checked it as baggage too.
