There's St Paul Rock...part of the St Peter & St Paul Rock entity.
and there's St Paul Island, which is the same as KL7.
There are many St Paul Islands spread around the globe.

I assumed the /P was for "Portable" as that's is general indicator for portable.

I always thought that was the St. Paul Is. that had DXCC status . Are there 2 S Paul Islands ???

I was on St Paul Island, part of the Pribiloff Islands. There was a dxpedition of KL7's that came out to the island and operated for a week. They applied for DXCC status and it was declined by the ARRL DXCC desk. I kept using it while they were "negotiating" with the league for a 2nd look at it..

That had to be a cool IOTA operation !  

Guess I'd rather be sitting in my own shack that going to all those DX locations. In the words of my late cousin, "I ain't going nowhere on a DXpedition that doesn't have a Holiday Inn !"....

There's always been controversy over this.
The Pribiloff Islands right smack dab in the middle of the Bering Sea doesn't count, yet they're hundreds of kilometers from mainland AK, and the same from the Aleutian Islands.
I operated from St Paul Island in the Pribiloff chain for 3 months during the summer of 1983.
It was a blast! I could run JA's on 30m CW literally 7/24/365. I chose to run the JA's because they are the most courteous and polite CW op's on any band.

Thanks everyone! I checked with the online IOTA list and OC-137, it says, does not include
Bribie Island, so I guess I will go with OC-001, got it right that time, the mainland.
 
Thanks again.

Gotcha !   200.5 meters or even 200.1 meters at low tide and it's an IOTA.   Wonder how far off shore Ellis Is. is ?  Probably not an IOTA because it's in the harbor, huh ?

Used to correspond (snail mail) with Geoff Watts who founded IOTA.  He was an SWL  and never a ham.  Unfortunately, he passed long before the IOTA program really got rolling.  Who'd have known it would be so popular !   It certainly is a lot less expensive than mounting a full-fledged DXpedition where it might cost a 1/2 MIL $$$  or better for transportation !   With all the little islands all over the world ... so, IOTA makes us common types DXpeditioners of a sort !

That's the point. If it's less than 200 meters, then it doesn't count as an island.

BTW, that's the reason that Staten Island (one of the five boroughs in NYC) doesn't count as an IOTA any more.

If the island is 201 meters away from the mainland (at low tide), it counts.

200 km rule would be more reminiscent of the "this counts as a new DXCC entity even though it's politically the same." (This is the reason that Alaska and Hawaii are their own entities.)

(South Coast) South group (include Bribie,Moreton etc)
Bill -

The current directory (including online) now says explicitly that OC-137
does NOT include Bribie.

http://www.rsgbiota.org/info/search.php?q=oc-137

Elsewhere it states that "everything not listed for the coastal islands
counts for OC-001."

The list I downloaded in the past year shows OC 137 to be VK4 QLD State (South coast) South Group

I would presume they are the same.

Bribie Island counts for OC-001, which is the main Australia IOTA. It's so close to the "mainland" that it doesn't qualify as a member of one of the coastal groups.

Looking at a map, it reminds me of Merritt Island in Florida, though that technically isn't even an island (and thus doesn't even count as an IOTA).

Hi Folks,

I just worked Peter, VK4PHD, and he said his QTH was Bribie isl, off Australia. VK4PHD does not show
in QRZ.com however, in QRZCQ.com it says OC-100, but I believe that's the mainland.

Does Bribie isl have its own number? I didn't see anything in the RSGB IOTA data.

I am not an IOTA hunter, so I apologize for my ignorance on this subject.

Thanks, Larry WA7HDZ #404

Firecracker log submission

K8TOM
 

Eric,

Since we have had a couple problems with "missing" logs submitted for past events, will you be acknowledging the receipt of logs as they are received?

Thanks for all your work on our behalf!

I will gladly loan you my spatula...after I finish using it to pry my
foot out of my mouth. Seriously, I would bet there is not a one of us
who hasn't made some type of error on our logs at some point in time.
Glad you got time to get on for a while!

GM all
I had a fun time operating in Firecracker Sprint last night
Unfortunately I was not near my rig until 11PM local time 2300UTC. I
operated for about 1-1/2 hrs then sleep became imperative.
Thanks to the 35 or so OPs I was able to log.
As for eQSL, I logged in UTC but about 20% of contacts logged in local
time. No match in eQSL (also LOTW?) that way. I always log in UTC
time, am I missing something in these rolling start 070 contests?
