One of the things unique in Texas (not sure if other states allow it) is that the same plates can be on multiple vehicles. I don't plan to ever have a radio in my wife's daily driver and while she is a ham she doesn't want one in there either so no radio plates on hers. I need to get a radio back in the CX-5. I don't think I am going to do HF again, really thinking just a simple 2M FM rig, mostly interested in just keeping tuned in to 146.52 when I take road trips. Debating between that and doing something a little fancier (I believe we have some FUSION repeaters in the area).
