Looking for ways to promote the hobby.

Ever since I changed my license plate to my call sign I noticed that all the traffic lights I come across are always green, snows melts in front of my tires, cute girls wave at me and I am not sure but I think I even get better gas mileage. (Actual results may vary)

I encourage the members of the club to do the same; it is a nice way to “Promote the Hobby”. In NY it is an easy process and it takes about 2 weeks. You can do it over the phone by calling (1-518-402-4838) or on the internet by going to this address: http://www.nydmv.state.ny.us/emerg.htm you will need a copy of the license issued by the FCC. Of course, nothing is free and nowhere else is this more evident than here in New York. There is an initial cost for the plates of $35 and an annual plate renewal fee of $6.50 for the Ham Radio Operator plates.
