I guess I have been lucky until now. I fly back and forth to Stockholm
about once every month. I leave either from Amsterdam or Brussels (equal
driving distance from my home)
When I think I have enough spare time in Stockholm I take my ICT-81, and
  so far I never got questioned at all three airports. I do take the
antenna off and remove the battery pack. I guess that on the X-ray
machine the thing looks too much like a cell phone...
