I don't know about the SS pins and mugs that some guys are still 
waiting for, however I received my Division plaque on 5/18/94. They
are very nice (similar to ARRL DX contest plaques). Thanks to K7GM
for providing mine. I feel that the upgrade in plaques, pins and stuff is 
definitely a great way to improve SS participation (just look at '93 scores
even though 10m was on its way toward a null). The items of recognition are
good not only for the hardcore, but the casual ops for making x QSOs, sweeps,
etc.  This is nothing that the NCCC guys haven't known for a long time. Their
wine bottles, glasses, and 
T shirts fuel the country's best QSO party (CQP) every

I'm rebuilding a TH6 for service near seawater.  What do you do different to
avoid problems in this situation?
