Hey Everybody,

Has anyone seen or heard tell of Charlie K8IJ, since his APE. You
don't
suppose he decided to stay in Margaritaville, do ya :-)

He might also be on another business trip. He's been spending a
lot of time in 6-land (LA area) recently.

But I hope he gets back some time. I'd like a QSL from a new IOTA.

(Fwd) Re: IOTA Question

Steve W3HF
 

Here's the formal ruling from "Mr IOTA" himself. As we had
expected, none of our islands require any special validation.

Note that Roger also mentioned the IOTA rule that lets the operator
activating the island to count that island in his own IOTA totals.

Bernie--If Melonie operated under your call, you can't count any
island contacts she made in your total.

Finally, as expected, Roger pointed out the difference between
Duck Island (which counts) and Duck on Nags Head (which
doesn't).

Hello Steve

Contacts by data modes are acceptable so long as they are not
aided by repeaters or satellites, and are not cross-band or cross-
mode. The islands activated may also count towards the home
individual scores of the US operators (Directory H.1.1).

As regards contacts with other islands made from these stations,
they may be counted for the normal single operator category award
(if the licence holder only operates and it is his home call) or,
otherwise, for a club category award.

None of these IOTA groups constitutes a "rare", "most wanted", or
"difficult" group, which would require special validation.

The islands you mention all count subject to your checking on one.
Duck Island is the island south of Roanoke Island - this counts.
Duck, the town on the long peninsula that runs through Corolla,
Southern Shores, Nags Head etc does not count for IOTA (my
brother visits this town quite often!). I mention this just because
there may be confusion that the long peninsula is an IOTA island,
hi! Please can you pass the word along as we want to avoid
problems with QSL cards wrongly showing an IOTA number.
Maybe you could let me know the answer.

Subject: IOTA Question


Roger -

The PODXS 070 Club (www.podxs.com) has incentivized its
members to participate in mini-DXpeditions during this month of
August, to publicize the ability of PSK31 stations to operate from
portable locations. (We called this APE--August PSK Expedition.)
Seven trips were scheduled, although only five actually happened.
Four of these five operated from islands that are listed in existing
IOTA groups. (The fifth was from a river in Minnesota.)

As a very new participant in IOTA activities, I would like to
confirm (for the club members) that these four will not only count
for club purposes, but can be used as contacts for IOTA awards.
Specifically, I am trying to confirm my reading of the IOTA book
(11th edition) that none of these IOTA groups constitute a "rare",
"most wanted", or "difficult" group, which would require special
validation actions by the operator(s).

KF4FHS operated from Vashon Island, NA-065
W3HF operated from Bogue Banks Island, NA-112
AA8QQ operated (we think) from Duck Island, NA-067
K8IJ operated from Estero Island, NA-069

Thanks for any clarification you can give on this matter.

Re: IOTA & the Outer Banks

Does your directory have any information on who to contact, to find
this out ?

Bernie
There are a few rules regarding what IOTAs would require formal
approvals. They include:

1. previously unnumbered groups
2. groups listed in the published lists of "rare" and "most wanted"
3. "difficult" groups, defined as islands with restrictions on landing or
operating an amateur radio station
4. "other, albeit less rare, IOTA groups activated by amateurs
cruising on small yachts"

None of the islands listed for the APEs meet rules 1 or 2 above,
based on the lists in the book. I don't think any meet either three or
four, either. So I think we're all in the clear.

The point of contact for clarifications on the above rules is Roger
Balister, the IOTA program manager for RSGB. I will take the
initiative to contact him with all the known IOTA APEs--KF4FHS,
K8IJ, W3HF/4, AA8QQ (maybe? depending on which island)--for a
"formal" reading.

BTW, if Dimitri had made it to NA-144, he would have come close to
requiring validation. The rules say any IOTA group that is currently
credited to less than 10% of the members requires validation. NA-
144 is sitting at 13%.

W3HF the Energizer bunny??

N3DQU@...
 

Now one would think that after making over 100 APE contacts from Bogue
Banks Island, NC, pulling up stakes a week later only to drive down to
Florida to try it again, then heading back up north to eastern Pennsylvania
in anticipation of that joyous post vacation experience known as the "great
unpacking of the car", that one would be understandably tired and in need of
some greatly deserved sack time after such a trip. Well, that was W3HF's
itinerary alright, but what did he do when he got home? Did he collapse on
the doorstep, only to be awakened by the chirping of the morning birds and
the warm, wet feeling of the neighbor's dog relieving himself on his
prostrate body? Not even close!
Seems that as soon as Steve got in the door, he was hitting the
books...his callbooks that is! W3HF has quite an extensive collection of ham
radio callbooks dating back to ye olden days of ham radio dontcha know, and
rather than numbly downing a couple cold ones on the way to the comforting
arms of his Sterns&Foster, he responded to a cry for help from a total
stranger who was searching for his grandfather's callsign! Yes, believe it! I
saw it myself on the ham radio history reflector! "This guy" (I told myself)
"is totally nuts!"
So my question is this...Do you think that perhaps, W3HF is the Energizer
bunny in disquise? He seems to have an unlimited supply of energy and he just
doesn't know when to stop! He might have even figured out how to power his
'817 by Steve-power! Hey om Steve, nice job on the research, now it's
beddie-bye time!! 73 de Jay N3DQU.

I don't think the IOTA rules require the IOTA number to be ON the

But some islands, probably the more rare ones, may require
documentation to be supplied to RSGB, to prove you were there.

Maybe we need to check if any of the APE islands will require

Something strange happened last night, and I'm not sure what it
was.

After I found Don N3MK/0, I posted an email to the
reflector (msg
#2602 at 7:03 PM EDT). I also posted a spot to the DX Summit
cluster a few seconds later, per Rich's suggestion. I
know I did it,
because I saw it in the listing a few minutes later.

But late last night, I was looking over the spots, and
couldn't find
my post! I even did a search using my callsign, and it
wasn't there!
So I'm wondering what happened.

Does anyone know if someone "filters" the spots? For
example, if
someone were to post an obscenity, or flame someone in the
notes, would the spot (eventually) be deleted?

I'm curious because the text of my note was "PSK31 070 Club
APE." Maybe I should have spelled out August PSK Expedition,
but that wouldn't have fit. (I was trying to get some
publicity for the
070 club.) Do you think I may have been misinterpreted,
that I was
calling our friend Don a simian?

I hope I haven't been blacklisted by the clusters.

The 11th edition specifically lists Vashon as part of NA-065,
Washington State North.

I think this edition has changed the way groups are defined.
Virtually all groups list ALL islands that qualify, rather than using
descriptions (like everything west of XXXX).

If you want, I can send you a scan of the page that includes it,
page 64 of the 11th edition.

Hey Steve,

While you've got your IOTA directory out, would you mind looking up
Vashon
Island, WA.

I have heard from some of the folks that it is an IOTA, but N3DQU
and
myself reaserched it and the best we could tell it does not qualify,
because it lies South of the southern most coordinate allowed for
Puget Sound.

I emailed one of the IOTA fellers, but haven't heard anything back
yet.

Bernie -

The 11th edition specifically lists Vashon as part of NA-065,
Washington State North.

I think this edition has changed the way groups are defined.
Virtually all groups list ALL islands that qualify, rather than using
descriptions (like everything west of XXXX).

If you want, I can send you a scan of the page that includes it,
page 64 of the 11th edition.

Hey Steve,

While you've got your IOTA directory out, would you mind looking up
Vashon
Island, WA.

I have heard from some of the folks that it is an IOTA, but N3DQU
and
myself reaserched it and the best we could tell it does not qualify,
because it lies South of the southern most coordinate allowed for
Puget Sound.

I emailed one of the IOTA fellers, but haven't heard anything back
yet.

Thanks & 73,
Bernie / KF4FHS
