Amateur Radio License Plates
The Maine Amateur Radio Foundation (web site) is working hard to get HAM radio license tags. In order to do that, we need your help. For the initial run, we need 2000 tags and then another 2000 the second and follow-on years (minimum 4000 including renewals). The form to order the tag is available here. Download the form, talk it up and send it around!
