Take the Space Out of Our Call Signs
by Darryl Widman, KF6DI
By now, most of you have heard about Sacramento's inserting a space between characters of our Amateur Radio call signs on our license plates. If you care anything about how your call sign appears on your license plates, please do as I have done and contact our Governor and let him know what is on your mind. Another to contact is Senator Alan Lowenthal, California State Senate, 27th District, Chair, Transportation & Housing Committee 115 Pine Ave, Suite 430, Long Beach, CA 90802, Phone: (562) 495-4766 Fax: (562) 495-1876 Another very important person to contact is Assemblyman Pedro Nava, 35th Assembly District, Chair, Assembly Transportation Committee, Chair, Joint Legislative Committee on Emergency Services and Homeland Security District Offices: Santa Barbara County 101 W. Anapamu Street, Suite A, Santa Barbara, CA 93101 Tel: (805) 564-1649, Fax: (805) 564-1651
As you can tell by the letter below that I faxed to the Governor's office in Los Angeles, there are good reasons for us to be disturbed by what the DMV has been doing lately. Please be my guest and write a letter to the Governor and others, based upon my letter if you wish, and give them a piece of your mind. Sitting there doing nothing will result in exactly the same thing. If you have ham license plates now, please drive very carefully and don't lose them. If you wished to have them replaced you will be very surprised with what you receive. If you are expecting new ham plates for your vehicle, guess what you will be receiving!
The Governor's fax number in Los Angeles is (213) 897-0319. Faxes have much more impact than e-mails. Please do it now. Thanks.
