Who cares? In the following scenario, I would care! If I had the call
sign N1OCL and I moved from Connecticut (or where ever) to Montana and
then tried to get a ham plate for my vehicle, I would care. I believe
my application would be turned down by the Montana DOL, because the
Montana license plate number N1OCL already belongs to someone else, a
non-ham. We know the problem exists for this call. I've heard it also
exists for others as well. We suspect N1OCL is someone's airplane
registration number and the guy got it as a personalized plate number.
It perhaps is legal in Montana, but I still would be ticked off and yes,
I would care. Like I said in my first response to this thread. This
could NOT happen Washington state--see earlier post.
