LICENSED SINCE 1976 GENERAL CLASS, ORLANDO, FLORIDA
OPERATED AS VK8RP FOR 6 YEARS IN THE 1980's
RECEIVED W4RP CALLSIGN IN NOV 1996

==================================================================================

Here is a picture of the Tags issued by the state of Florida for my auto.
They issue a license plate with  your callsign if you are an amateur radio operator (for $2).
  In Florida, you are required to have a new physical tag every 5 years.
So every 5 years, I get a new one (different design) and hang the old one on the wall.

W4RP License Tag/Plate

A sample of my auto Tags - the first 2 are in the Garage - Of the four here, 3 are University of Central Florida Tags with my callsign.
My current tag (on my car) is an "Endless Summer" Florida specialty plate with W4RP, of course.
