                     >>> HONOUR ROLL / ANNUAL LISTING <<<

There has  unfortunately been  further delay.  This  year's Honour  Roll  and
Annual Listings will now be published in the August RadCom issued at the  end
of July. The delay has been due to the need  to give priority to work on  the
new IOTA Directory. Check  the RSGB website  from mid June  onwards as it  is
expected that  the listings  will be  posted then.  Please do  not ask  about
progress.
