My call was WA3OKW from 1969 to 2001.  After I bought a car in 1972, my license plate was always WA3OKW. Then last year, someone stole the car, so to keep my call sign license plate I had to switch to the new system of call signs, something I hoped to avoid.  But I finally gave in and changed the call sign to keep my PA amateur radio license plate.  What can you do?

Well, that seems extreme. Wasn't there a way to purchase a vanity plate with the old call until the car was recovered or the old plate expired? Doesn't  your state have more than one design that would have allowed you to continue to have the old call? I understand  the attachment to an old call, it is the reason I have kept my KL7 call. I could get K7IPV but it just wouldn't "ring" the same.

You say "last year" your car was stolen.  After a year you would think that the chances of recovering the vehicle with the plates still on it are little to none.  The first thing that comes off the vehcile are the plates, it's the quickest way to be spotted.  Your local police department should have cancelled the plates off the original stolen car report after a year and modified the NCIC entry listing the vehcile by the VIN number only.  73's
