2018
ITALIAN SPECIAL EVENT
As of January 1st through November 11th, look for many Italian special event stations
(and they do mean many - too many to list) with special two letter suffixes representing
a ship of the Italian Royal Navy that in 1918 were engaged in the Adriatic Sea in the
First World War. These stations are operating for a diploma called "Award Regia Marina".
There is a list of more than 70 accredited ARMI stations, 10 Jolly IQ stations, and a
special (super Jolly) II7WWI station that qualify for the three awards (Gold, Silver
and Bronze) and a Top Honor Plaque. The list can be found at:
