Hams, some companies say they are kosher and for others they're trief 
(Yiddish for not kosher).  At least I have a memo with Holland's America 
ham radio policy in hand and I will secure the Captain's permission 
before operating.

I found a few items missing in the webpage mentioned by Drew.
a.   no mention of requesting/receiving the ship's Captain permission to 
operate, as we all should.
b.   That ship is of Panamanian registry and to operate you need an IARP 
license. I don't think that this would have made a difference to those 
security officers but the Captain's permission probably would have 
changed the tunes around a bit.
