I live in NYS, I have a NYS ham operator plate K9CHP, but I'm not 
considered an emergency vehicle of any sort on the road. Now if you look 
on how to obtain a ham radio operator license plate, you will see the 
instructions are with other emergency type plates as you need to provide 
proof (a copy of your FCC license) but that's where the officialdom 
begins and ends.

I don't know what the person below called "specifically exempt". The 
only break is on the cost of the ham plate, much cheaper than a regular 
vanity plate.
