Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

Section 1. § 2121 Title 21 of the Delaware Code of 1953 is amended by adding a new subsection to be styled § 2121 (g), as follows:

§ 2121. Number and registration plates; provision for the issuance of special license plates to the owners of motor vehicles who operate amateur radio stations

(g) Upon written application, the Department shall furnish to any owner of a motor vehicle otherwise entitled to license plates who is a resident of the State of Delaware and who holds a valid, unrevoked and unexpired official Amateur Radio Station License issued by the Federal Communications Commission, a set of special license plates for each motor vehicle owned by him and on which the required registration fee has been paid, but not to exceed two sets of plates for each individual, which plates shall bear the official amateur radio station call letters as assigned by the Federal Communications Commission to said individual, and which plates shall supersede, during the time said individual holds a valid, unrevoked and unexpired official Amateur Radio Station License issued by the Federal Communications Commission and while such motor vehicle is owned by him, the regular numbered plates assigned to such motor vehicle; provided that at all times the necessary registration fee has been paid for such motor vehicle. Upon making application for such special license plates the owner shall pay, in addition to the regular registration fee, the sum of Five Dollars and Fifty Cents ($5.50) for each set of plates. Application shall be made on such forms as shall be prescribed by the Department. The Department shall cause to be made a complete list of all names, addresses and license plate letters issued under this subsection and shall furnish copies to all State, County, Municipal and other law enforcement officers.

The special license plates shall have imprinted thereon only the call letters of the licensee, the word Delaware and the expiration date of the license plate.

Approved May 20, 1953.
