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
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.
