Because of the very-large roll ham radio played in the aftermath of
the 1964 Alaska Earthquake (9.2), the legislature passed a resolution
that any ham with ham gear installed in their vehicle would not only
get "ham call" plates but would be exempt from registration
costs. WE still pay any local personal property tax that is included
in Alaskan auto tags.
You only get one vehicle licensed with call-sign plates.
