H44IOTA ---> "Some issues have arisen about the current  H44IOTA  operations
that need to be addressed before decisions can  be  taken  about  acceptance
for IOTA. As this may take a little time to resolve, it may  make  sense  to
hold off sending your QSLs for the time being". [TNX www.rsgbiota.org]

IOTA NEWS ---> The following operations in the  period  May-June  2013  have
provided acceptable validation and are therefore approved for  IOTA  credit:
HQ3W (NA-160), YB8P (OC-208), YB8RW/P  (OC-236),  H44AJ  (OC-285)  and  H44S

prior to shipment to the staging areas in California  and  Hawaii.  The  two
week "on air" dates are anticipated to start the last week of  September  or
first week of October. However, this is entirely dependent on  the  military
flight schedule into  and  out  of  Wake  Atoll  and  this  has  yet  to  be
determined. Visit www.wake2013.org for updates and  information  on  how  to
contribute to this expensive project. [TNX W8GEX]
