via the ARRL: Islands on the Air Seeking Proposed Additions to List of Valid Island Groups

The Island on the Air (IOTA) program is reviewing its list of valid island groups, as it typically does every 5 years.

“This time, IOTA management has decided to bring forward the review to give a chance for any new groups announced to be activated in 2019, the target year,” said Roger Balister, G3KMA, in an August 31 announcement. He continued, “The review process is scheduled to start with an announcement of some additions at this year’s [Radio Society of Great Britain] Convention, and may possibly finish with a top-up at next year’s Friedrichshafen HAM Radio event.”
