RSGB IOTA ANNUAL LISTINGS 1999

In last year's IOTA Annual Listings we announced a record increase in new applicants for the basic IOTA certificate. The year 1998, with 211 new applicants applying, saw that record beaten by 5. This represents an annual growth rate of 12 per cent which on a steadily expanding base has to be regarded as very healthy. Praise for this goes to our Checkpoints who increased participation in their countries significantly.

For the first time in several years the top three Honour Roll positions have changed. Gianni Varetto, I1HYW, has overtaken Livio Zenti, I1ZL, for the number two spot. Jean-Pierre Guillou, F9RM, remains top, 12 credits ahead, with a massive 915 island groups worked out of the 930 maximum possible at cut-off date. The number of members with a score of 750 islands, the top benchmark of individual achievement warranting the coveted Plaque of Excellence, has almost reached the 100 mark. Many more are within reach. It is worth noting that at least one member in the top ten has never used a linear amplifier, preferring to run only 100 watts, and another in the top 50 has never used a beam, relying on wire antennas. Although most at the top of the Honour Roll are 'big guns', this is not true of all. The total number of members who have a score more than half the total of activated islands (465) and therefore warrant being included in the Honour Roll has reached 310. At least one has done it on CW only. For each this is real achievement.

It takes two to tango. This is true of island chasing for IOTA. Only one in three of  IOTA's 930 activated groups has a resident amateur. The remainder rely on short term operations by visiting amateurs. Many of these are difficult and expensive to reach, uncomfortable when you get there and the very last place to choose for a holiday. When we talk therefore of the achievements of those who are listed in the Honour Roll, we must not forget to give credit equally to the DXpeditioners who make these achievements possible.

The IOTA Contest again contributed significantly to the promotion of island activity last year and we are grateful to Chris Burbanks, G3SJJ and his colleagues on the HF Contests Committee for their efforts in organising and adjudicating the event. A record number of island stations were active that weekend, each giving many an island chaser a new one.

Overall, 1998 must go down as the year Chinese amateurs stormed into IOTA. Yang, BD7JA had already led the way activating two new groups in Guangdong Province in the autumn of 1997 . Between April and August 1998 Yang, Alan BA1DU, David BD4DW, Deal BA4TB and David BD4RF, each accompanied by a team of a dozen or more young amateurs, activated a further six new Chinese coastal groups. 1999 promises more new ones as the Chinese Radio Sports Association makes participation in IOTA activities a central plank of its programme. CRSA is the latest of an increasing number of national societies recognising the benefits of participation in IOTA by their members.

The last three years have seen the bands in the doldrums. Working barefoot with a vertical from the remote and rarer islands has for some not offered the promise of adequate payback in QSOs to justify the expenses involved. The dramatic improvement in band conditions in the last twelve months has changed this. A doughty band of DXpeditioners are focusing their attentions again on rare IOTAs.

From this year onwards, thanks to the generosity of Malcolm Johnson, VK6LC, trophies will be issued annually by the IOTA Committee to DXpeditions which are judged to have excelled all others in the year in question. There are two categories, the Most Courageous IOTA DXpedition and the Most Outstanding DXpedition of the Year. In the latter category there are two trophies, one for expeditions in Europe, Africa and Asia and the other for expeditions in North and South America and Oceania. Arrangements for issuing these are being published separately. The original trophies, each a beautiful pearl shell mounted on a red hardwood 'Jarrah' base, were presented to the IOTA Committee at the Gala Dinner at the IOTA 98 Convention in Las Palmas (Canary Islands)  in May 1998. The IOTA Committee is grateful to Malcolm for this gift and to Victor Rusinov, UT8LL, a long time supporter of IOTA, who is funding the production of high quality replicas for retention by the annual winners.

This report would not be complete without my registering the Committee's thanks to all the IOTA Checkpoints for their hard work during the year. Their help is essential to the success of the programme. My own thanks go to Martin Atherton, G3ZAY for his help with the preparation of the listings.

IOTA CLUB STATION LISTING
The IOTA Committee decided in late 1997 to introduce a club category of
application to cater for and encourage interest in the IOTA Programme by
clubs, DXpedition groups etc. The following is the very first Club Listing
and includes the callsigns of club or multi-operator stations with a 
checked score of 100 or more islands/groups. Full information on this new
of application can be found in the 1998/99 RSGB IOTA Directory & Yearbook
(pages 47-48).
