I have always placed my ht's in my carry-on bags, and only had to explain a few times, usually at smaller airports.  I go thru ORD, three to four times a month and only once did I have a problem.  It was completely my fault.  I got off the bus, and realized that my fire pager was on my belt, I threw it in my carry on.  It makes a continous tone when the battery goes down, and by the time I got to security, it was blaring away.  The noise caused a bit off a stir.  Luckily, I was with some other firefighters, and all my ham gear was eaisly identifiable.  However, I did miss my flight cause of the 'interviews'.  United, did put my on the next flight, with no additional expense, when I explained to the ticket agent(very courteous) what happened.
