Re: Licence plates matching call letters

I just got back from a quick outing and saw a CKFH license plate in the parking lot. I can only hope it's their second car, because everyone else's is number one!

It was all announce-op during my AM drive time  in the 60's.

I saw a CETR 680 plate on the 401 the other day. At first glance it looked like CFTR 680.

My plate is CKFH accompanied by a Blue Jay logo. Of course 'FH carried the Jays games in the '70s (and before that the Expos).

Re: Licence plates matching call letters

I’m in London right now and I saw a plate with CFSK today - the call letters for Global Saskatoon. Later I saw CKNY, which is the call sign for CTV North Bay.

I’ve seen CFPL, CKNX, and CKVR on plates in Toronto in the past.

Re: Licence plates matching call letters

In the Ottawa Valley, a CJET plate will come along every so often, far from Smiths Falls, but haven't seen a CJET 630 plate. Any CJET alumni on Big Yella?

Re: Licence plates matching call letters

Found another one in London, today - CJBK. Number wasn’t 129 though.

Sadly, thanks to Bell, that's about the only place you'll see CJBK in London now.

Re: Licence plates matching call letters

There is a Tesla Model 3 in mid-town Toronto (Christie St & Davenport Road area), With the letters "CJCL".  The number is not 590 - which is the Rogers A.M. Frequency.
Two things that are interesting.  First, in Ontario Electric Vehicles are assigned a special "Green" licence plate with the Letters "GV##-###".   The CJCL plate on the Tesla, is not a Green Vehicle plate.  It is a "blue lettering" plate, that would be associated with an Internal Combustion Engine vehicle, secondly, the blue lettering is normally on a so-called "Vanity Plate" where the car owner pays an additional fee to personalize the plate.

Re: Licence plates matching call letters

Spotted a "CKTB" plate in Kitchener today, number was 840, not 610.

Tangential to this thread, back around 1986-87, the PD (Eric Samuels) for HTZ-FM in St. Catharines lived in the same townhouse/condo complex as my family. His white Mazda RX7 had the vanity plate "HTZ <crown symbol> FM". 

I wondered (as a dumb teenager) if he had a collection of such plates from all the stations he worked at.

Re: Licence plates matching call letters

I saw a CFNY in Sudbury yesterday, unusual for up here, as that plate was likely issued in the GTA, where I have seen many over the years. I  recall seeing CFNY 102 in Collingwood once in the Loblaws parking lot.

Re: Licence plates matching call letters

Soooo close... I saw a CKLW 797 plate in London over the weekend.
3 More and it would have been BINGO
