[aprssig] TSA regs on GPS?

Can take it on as checked baggage or as carry on, cannot use it 
during flight.  Southwest showed in their guide that you can't use 
GPS or Satellite Radio during flight at all.  However, since my 
Sirius SL2 has a mp3 mode, I was able to use that, just not satellite 
receive.  Radio receivers as a general rule are prohibited from use 
during any part of the flight.

Some airlines may allow you to use (either) or both items, but mine 
did not.  I was able to take it on though.

That's my experience anyway this past year.
