You must work at least 15 different participating ships

We are now processing certificates.
The first batch should be in the mail shortly.

Once all certificate requests are printed
we will publish the TOP OPERATOR LIST.

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.

MSW FAQ                                       UTC Time

To get your certificate, send a copy of your log for the 15 ships and $4.00 to the following address by Sept 30, 2015. (The $4 covers the cost of the envelope, postage and printing supplies. We will provide the large envelope to mail the certificates in.)  We do not give certificates for SWL.

If you send a check with your logs, please understand that we don't cash the checks until we print the certificate. It could be several months before your check is cashed. Normally we begin printing certificates after all the ship logs are recevied so we can verify your contacts. If you still want to send a check please make it out to the name listed in the address below.

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, 2015 just before the start of the event.
