The Islands on the Air (IOTA) Amateur Radio awards program announced six new island entities at its HAM RADIO forum in Friedrichshafen, Germany, this past weekend. The new groups have provisional numbers and will need to be confirmed by an operation after June 22 that meets the 1,000-contact requirement, in addition to other validations. Credit for prior operations will be considered only after a group number has been confirmed. Addition of the six new groups takes the total of confirmed or provisional IOTA numbers to 1,172, of which 1,131 have seen activity. IOTA policy caps the program at 1,200 groups.
