Personally I always broadcast my two home SSIDs. No reason not to
if you use strong encryption, ie. WPA2 or at a minimum WPA, with a long random encryption key/password/passphrase.
Hiding SSID does not add any additional security
whether you have strong or weak encryption/password set.
(Your sentence implies that you don't need to hide SSID if
you have strong encryption. I'm saying hiding SSID has nothing to do with encryption settings. Just don't hide it. Hiding SSID can only bring confusion and longer connect times to some clients or not connect at all.)
