INTERNATIONAL MARCONI DAY ---> Organized by the Cornish Radio Amateur  Club,
the International Marconi Day (IMD) is a 24-hour amateur  radio  event  held
annually to celebrate the birth of Guglielmo Marconi (25 April 1874). It  is
not a contest, but an opportunity for amateurs  around  the  world  to  make
contacts with historic Marconi sites  using  HF  communications  techniques.
This year's event will be held on 30 April, from  00.00  UTC  through  23.59
UTC. Details, including information on the relevant Award  Certificates  and
the listing of participating stations, can be found at www.gb4imd.org.uk

IOTA  50TH  ANNIVERSARY  MARATHON  --->  The  year  2014    marks  the  50th
anniversary of the launch of the Islands On  The  Air  (IOTA)  Programme  by
British SWL Geoff Watts, BRS-3129. To celebrate the occasion, the RSGB  IOTA
Manager and Committee announce an exciting  activity  period  in  which  all
licensed amateurs world-wide are invited to participate.
For a two-year period (from 00.00 UTC 1 January  2012  until  23.59  UTC  31
December 2013), IOTA chasers are encouraged to  contact  as  many  different
IOTA groups  as  possible,  and  IOTA  activators  to  play  their  part  by
operating from as many groups as possible,  with  special  emphasis  on  the
less-frequently activated ones.
Certificates  and  awards  will  be  available  to    both    'Chasers'  and
'Activators'  to  reflect  attainment  of  graduated  bands  of  performance
together with attractive prizes for top scorers. The  challenge  provides  a
level playing field for everyone,  because  everyone  starts  with  a  clean
slate on 1 January 2012.
The full rules of the  IOTA  50th  Anniversary  Marathon  can  be  found  on
G3KMA's website (www.g3kma.dsl.pipex.com) and soon on the RSGB IOTA  website
