IOTA NEWS ---> The logs for the  IOTA Contest 2019 island stations  have now
been added to the IOTA database  and  are available for  QSO matching.  IOTA
Management is "waiting for further information from B2/BY1CQ, BI4IX, DL0SOP,
R0MZ/P, SA7J, SP3A,  SQ6NEJ and  SV8/LZ1ABC  before these activations can be
accepted". Record-holders  who  have  made  IOTA contacts in an IOTA contest
after 2003, can claim  credit  for  them  without  submitting QSLs, provided
that the contact  details  match.  Go  to  https://iota-world.org/,  log in,
select "Add Contest QSOs" under the "My IOTA" tab, and then upload your .cbr
or .log file(s).

VP8/VP8DXU ---> Beginning on 24 October,  team members  will meet near  Palo
Alto (California) "to consolidate,  integrate,  test and  pack the equipment
for its transport to Punta Arenas, Chile".
Similar to  their  Ducie Island (VP6D)  plan,  "the antenna team  designed a
strategy that considers  Signy Island's location  and  topography.  Vertical
Dipole  Arrays  will  be  directed  towards  Europe, over  water.  For other
geographies the topology is less suitable for VDAs so instead Moxons will be
used. Low band vertical antennas will be used for all geographies".
As for  fundraising,  44 clubs/foundations  and  over  350 individuals  have
supported  the project  so far.  "We still have a long way to go",  the team
says, "but  we're  encouraged by  the response.  If you or your club  aren't
listed on our website, please consider a donation".
