Yep, I see quite a lot of them around town but alas I'm not a HAM dude yet...

Are they only available in the green though? I like the columbine plates and the green clashes with the black :hill:

I think Nathaniel has them. Maybe Bruce and Barbara too.

One problem I see with this though. All somebody has to do is plug in your call sign and they can type in the FCC database and get GPS coordinates to where your Cruiser lives. I've thought about that a lot. It might not be that big of deal for a later model common Cruiser, but imagine having the plates on a restored rig that would be easy to part out. I've never been concerned about having my Cruiser stolen by a local but I have been concerned by internet type thieves.
