IOTA Program Now Independent of RSGB

The popular Islands on the Air (IOTA) program is now being administered by an independent not-for-profit company, Islands on the Air (IOTA) Ltd., under an agreement with the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB), which had administered the program since its inception. Initial directors of the new company, according to the ARRL Letter, are Roger Balister, G3KMA, and Stan Lee, G4XXI. Appointment of a full board of directors is next on the agenda. No significant policy changes are anticipated, and the new company says it is fully committed to completing an ongoing paperless QSLing project to permit electronic confirmations to be used.
