Amateur Radio License Plate

IMG_1641There have been several reports of issues and difficulties regarding requests for the new amateur radio license plate. Some people have gotten the old design license plate. Some people have gotten the yellow/green/blue plate with their call sign on it… Some people have been charged the $50 vanity license plate fee. You should only be charged the $3 fee for amateur radio plates that is established by state law. The link below shows the new design. As of June 1, 2014, this design is the one mandated by law since it was approved by Alabama Dept. Of Revenue and Alabama Dept. of Public Safety. If you or anyone you know of has had any problems regarding the new license plate, please email Christopher Hall at k4lia at hotmail.com
