A smoking section in a restaurant makes as much sense as a peeing section in a swimming pool.

The average person doesn't even know what an amateur radio call sign is, nor do they know you can just look it up on the internet and get a name and address from it.

If someone DID know that, I doubt a theif is going to sit there and say "Gee, if I get that guy's address, I can make a killing from all the equipment I can steal".

The people you have to worry about are the crooks that are sitting down the street in an indiscreet vehicle, watching when you come and go.  Or the guy who has enough smarts to listen to the local repeater with a scanner and hear you brag to your buddies about the vacation you're about to take.

I don't see any problems. I have mine on both of my trucks. Easy to remember.

SC Amateur Plates const an extra $2.  Of course, they are rather ugly but, ya can't have everything.

Figures, Arizona is one of the most expensive- $25 to get them and $25/year after that.

Update:  Yesterday (the 21st) I received my new vehicle registration along with a note that said the plates would be along in six to eight weeks.

I was able to download the form for CA, filled it out, paid the [I think] $21 and the plates arrived in a couple of weeks.  No huhu at all.  No annual renewal cost either.

I think it's excellent for those into EmComm as it's a nearly instant identifier.

I suppose you don't have a sticker telling your common listening frequencies either? <grin!>

Kentucky bends you over.  They issue a really ugly plate that costs $41 for the plate, and $21 a year above and beyond the regular yearly vehicle tax/tag fee.  THEN they expire the plate every 5 years and force you to buy another for $41...
