2016 TOP OPERATOR LIST
Available after all Certificates are printed
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
To get your certificate, send a copy of your log for the 15 ships and $4.00 to the following address by Sept 30, 2016. (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.

Some ships will also be on 3880 KHz - 3885 KHz and 7290 KHz Amplitude Modulation with either their ships original equipment or modern equipment.
While any operating mode can be used in this event and CW and SSB are the dominant modes, we are encouraging all the particpating ships, that have the ability, to fire up their original equipment on
3885 KHz, 3600 & 3625 (in the UK),
3705 (W. Europe),
7290 KHz and 14.286 KHz in the AM mode.
