Some ships may also operate at 3880 - 3885 kHz as well as7290 kHz amplitude modulation with either their original or modern equipment.
All stations that contact at least 15 different participating ships can receive a certificate if they send a copy of their log entries to each individual ship with two exceptions to acceptable contacts:
Contacting the same ship on more than one frequency or mode does not count as having contacted more than one ships.
Contacting a non-participating ship does not count.
New this year, DX stations contacting at least 10 different ships will be eligible to request a certificate (this does not include the US states or Canada).
