Don't believe you have to have radio in the car to have plates.

Great comments very much appreciated.


Thinking of getting plates for my car, but then I would need to purchase a radio.


Used to be N5WSW now W5JX.


Interesting knowing hurdles others have gone through.


Thank you,

I also ran into an issue with having radio op plates on multiple vehicles. One year when I had my vehicle inspection done on my car they wrote it up as if they inspected my travel trailer. I didn't discover this until I got home and was going to renew my registration online. I ended up having to go back to the auto shop to get it sorted out. It took some explaining and re-explaining to get them to understand it. In the end, nothing that couldn't be overcome. Just a minor inconvenience.
