locked Re: Not ignoring /MM stations

Yep, but it can count for other things, like CQ's DX area award, grid worked (VUCC comes to mind), ITU Zone, CQ Zone, etc.

I received a beta with a fix in it, and that cleaned up my alerts. Turns out a 15m /MM station had mistakenly given me credit for France as well. Thankfully there was an opening yesterday and now I have a real France confirmation. :)

Even it was docked, it doesn't count for DXCC under most circumstances. This is from the DXCC rules:

8.  All stations contacted must be "land stations." Contacts with ships and boats, anchored or underway, and airborne aircraft, cannot be counted.  Exception: Permanently docked exhibition ships, such as the Queen Mary and other historic ships will be considered land based.
