    This thread was on my watch list and I was curious if anything interested was added. Not really so I am unwatching it.

    I am proud to let people know I am a ham operator. If they want to find out where I live, there are plenty of other ways for them to find out and like someone else said, they know you have a radio in the vehicle from the antenna. 73 to all

    Cost in Ohio excessive plus need to provide documentation = ha$$le I don't need.
    No rig in auto, no distracted driving.

    The thread can be boiled down to ...
    Those who are in favor of ham plates.
    Those who are not in favor of ham plates.
    Those who may have difficulty making a decision on their own.

    Despite 3 area call, I am in Washington state. Our rules are different than other states (especially TN). If I didn't lease a car, I'd have the veteran plate instead of the boring state one. But that's the lease company's rules, and basically their car too.

    Ham plates are nice, but if you support a specific college (why would you do that), or are a veteran, or have a reason to want a special plate then do that. Virginia had LOTS of them. I'd say get a nice sticker with your callsign.

    Road rage is bad here, its totally out of control. Last I need is some hothead looking up my license plate because it is also my callsign. And I'd do ham stickers for the clubs I'm in, but not feeling like putting my callsign all over my car.

    Throwing on a few gun manufacturer stickers on the windows also helps :D

    I've had ham plates for many years, without incident.

    I'm more concerned with a convicted felon who "follows" me here on QRZ and I can't un-follow him. I've asked for assistance, provided links to his background and activities, and the moderators tell me there is nothing they can do.

    Wisconsin did that also.

    The change happened when inmates stopped making license plates, and the state farmed it out.

    One used to be able to apply for them at the DMV, but they stopped that also.
    Now the only way to get HAM plates in WI is via the mail with proof of license (copy).
