    I guess that my answer would be a yes...

    Why the hell would you want to live there then???
    Sounds as a bunch of "hate bigots".

    Another reason I took my call sign plates off is that in my state the standard call sign plate is exactly the same color and lettering color as government plates. With a couple of antennas on my truck it was too often mistaken as being a Sheriff's Dept pickup. In the current environment I did not want that mistake to result in something undesirable.

    My first car, a ‘48 Chev at age 18, carried call plates.

    62 years later (Yes, I’m 80) my car (not the same one) still has call plates.

    Nothing bad has come of it, but several good things have.

    But enjoy your paranoia.

    Went in today to get ham plates for the new used car. The clerk checked and Colorado isn't making any ham plates at this time. She was told they may start making them next year in January and I should check back. This covid panic is affecting everything you can imagine.

    And Colorado quit stamping the HAM plates. They only offered the painted version lately. But the price was right. $2 upfront fee and then just normal registration renewal fees thereafter. With all of the registration renewal "fees" in Colorado I'm surprised ham plates were not included.

    Was just thinking... Did K7LQT ever guess that her August 2013 thread would survive this long? Something of a milestone.

    About to give up my plates. I don't drive enough to warrant paying for car insurance. It's cheaper to call a cab (or Uber) the few times I need a ride.

    Does it bother anyone else that call plates let anyone look you up - it would seem to me like making yourself a target - telling everyone you have expensive equipment and giving them your address (I guess that's what PO boxes are for)?

    If you read back through the whole thread the consensus is 'no'.

    Wonder if this guy is a ham?
