Take this for what it is worth:

The state of Virginia has laws on the books, ever
since I've lived here, 
off and on since 1973.  To have Amateur Radio
Plates on your vehicle, 
you MUST KEEP THE RADIO SYSTEM IN YOUR VEHICLE.
IF YOU DO NOT FOR A 
PERIOD EXCEEDING 30 DAYS, THEN THE PLATES MUST BE
TURNED IN.


WHY?


To ALLOW LAW ENFORCEMENT TO USE YOUR MOBILE
STATION IN THE EVENT OF AN 
EMERGENCY.


The FCC rules are like a lot of things when it
turns to crap.  They 
become a sort of "guideline" and don't apply.

Don't believe it?  Go to the nearest military
installation.  Go to the 
Communications Office, (Radio - of course.), and
you'll find that our 
bands are ALREADY on the books with designated
frequencies inside the 
Amateur Radio Bands to be used under emergency.

Now this does not construe ANY Amateur Radio
Operator being paid for the 
use/using of the radio gear.

It is what it is!

ANYONE can pick up the microphone of a Law
Enforcement Vehicle and call 
for an officer down!  You'll NEVER be prosecuted
for it!
