If someone wanted to courier or carry around during travel (including 
by air) small demonstration sources of yellowcake (e.g. 100 g ??) or 
of uranium ore ( 1 kg ??), what are the IAEA or national transport 
reg limitations on these sources that might exempt or alternatively 
prohibit this?   A regulation cite would be appreciated.  I am 
interested in travel within a country (e.g. the U.S. or Canada) but, 
additionally,  what are the extra trans-border transport limitations?

Since I get Radsafe by digest mode, feel free to respond directly to me.
