Provisional reference  numbers  have been  issued  to  almost  all  currently
unnumbered IOTA groups with qualifying islands. The advantage of this is that
in future DXpeditioners to a previously  unactivated group will know the  new
reference  number  before  setting  off.  Offsetting   this  is  the   slight
disadvantage that,  as  new numbers  will  not be  issued  and  confirmed  in
sequence, tracking them  will be a  little more difficult.  However the  IOTA
websites  will  have  the  information.  The  procedures  for  validation  of
operations from the rarest IOTA groups and groups where special permission is
required will continue. For details see the listing under "New IOTA Reference
Numbers" on the IOTA Manager's website (http://www.g3kma.dsl.pipex.com).
Why the change? It will help DXpeditioners who  will now be able to give  the
new number on air as soon as they start the operation. It will also  simplify
things considerably  for IOTA  management.  Almost all  remaining  unnumbered
groups are  hard to  activate, either  for  "political" reasons  -  licensing
difficulties or nature conservation restrictions -  or the practical  hurdles
of access and cost. Few can be put on the air at little or no notice, so  the
chances of someone unfamiliar with IOTA requirements on validation firing  up
from a new island  group without any  prior contact with  IOTA HQ or  without
warning are not  as high  now as  once they  were when  procedures were  less
well-known. [TNX G3KMA]

                       >>> IOTA NEWS: NEW IOTA GROUP <<<

The IOTA  Committee is  committed to  reviewing the  island list  every  five
years. The last such  occasion was scheduled  for 2005 but  in the event  the
Committee  decided  against  a  review  then.  It  needed  to  complete  work
implementing decisions taken following the major overhaul of the island  list
in year 2000.  With the next  review not now  scheduled until  2010 the  IOTA
Committee has decided not to wait  until then to correct an anomaly.  Sebatik
Island in Borneo is a 'split sovereignty island', one half owned by Indonesia
(Kalimantan) and the other by East Malaysia (Sabah). Under paragraph E.5.7 of
the Programme Rules such islands each  count for a  separate IOTA group.  The
Committee is rectifying this omission now and adding Sebatik Island as a  new
group in the Oceania list (OC-295P). [TNX G3KMA]

right). Phil hopes to be able to upload the log to LoTW at some stage in  the
future. [TNX G3SWH]
