2015 CERTIFICATE INFORMATION
You must work at least 15 different participating ships
All stations that work at least 15 different ships of those participating (listed below) will receive a certificate if they send a copy of their log entries showing these contacts. Working the same ship on different frequencies DOES NOT count as 2 ships. Working a ship not listed will not count
We will post more information on certificates later. In the meantime, please read the following 2 articles which should help explain some problems that arise when checking your logs.

NEW: We will post a spreadsheet listing the ships with their call signs so you can use it to sort the ships by callsign to make it easier to find. This was suggested by several operators so we are going to try it out. It will be posted on Friday June 5, 2014 just before the start of the event.
2014 Top Operators
Ships wishing to participate should send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of ship, callsign, location and contact info for person responsible. If you are having trouble reaching the museum e-mail address, please send info to this address instead: email@example.com
Please read the rules for ships wishing to participate before contacting us.
