BEST COMMUNICATION AWARD ---> Sponsored by DX Coffee (www.dxcoffee.com)  and
DX University, it  takes  into  account  the  Public  Relations  side  of  a
DXpedition, i.e. the information (daily reports, pictures,  videos,  forums,
propagation hints, online logs,  operating  advice,  etc)  provided  to  the
amateur radio community through the DXpedition website and  other  channels.
The 2015  Best  Communication  Award  has  been  assigned  to  K1N  (Navassa
Island). [TNX IZ8IYX]

INDEXA NEWSLETTER ---> The Spring 2016 Special Issue  of  the  International
DX  Association's  (INDEXA)  Newsletter  is  now  available  for   download:
www.indexa.org/newsletters.html. This issue  contains  the  story  of  VK9WA
(Willis Island, November 2015) and a report  by  Roger  Western  (G3SXW)  on
some recent efforts in Europe to track  down  a  source  of  deliberate  QRM

IOTA NEWS: AN  APPEAL  TO  JOIN  FRIENDS  OF IOTA ---> We  referred  earlier
[425DXN #1303]  "to the  commitment of  the new company, Islands  on the Air
(IOTA) Ltd, to  the  paperless  QSLing project  that will  allow  electronic
confirmation of contacts. Much progress has been made  and some elements  of
this work are scheduled to be launched very soon on the  existing system  on
the IOTA website.  The new system itself will come on stream in  early 2017.
While paperless QSLing offers the IOTA Community huge savings in costs,  the
software development involved requires  substantial investment, the  more so
as it has to be grafted on to  a system that  will continue to accept  paper
cards. To help meet  these costs, the  new company  has launched Friends  of
IOTA as a supporters’ group within Islands on the Air (IOTA) Ltd. Its aim is
to give IOTA enthusiasts the opportunity not only to  participate in one  of
the most active  DX programmes in  the world  but  also to  support it  with
donations to ensure its long-term future". See www.rsgbiota.org [TNX G3KMA]

IOTA  NEWS:  DELETION  OF  KINGMAN  REEF  --->  "As  forecast  as  a  strong
likelihood in the  2016  IOTA  Directory  (page  50),  IOTA  Management  has
decided to delete Kingman Reef (OC-096) from the  IOTA  list,  effective  29
March 2016. Kingman Reef lost its current DXCC status on that date as it  no
longer satisfied the criteria under which it  was  added.  IOTA  Rule  E.5.5
states that an island that qualifies for separate listing  only  because  it
is a DXCC entity will have a start and / or  deletion  date  for  credit  in
line with DXCC decisions and that in the event  of  an  island  DXCC  entity
being deleted, the IOTA group number will normally  be  archived  and  score
credits moved on request to the IOTA group to which the  island  or  islands
are transferred. Kingman Reef is just such an island, and  the  transfer  in
this case is to Palmyra Atoll (OC-085). Before the end of June, credits  for
OC-096 will be deleted  from  all  records.  In  accordance  with  the  rule
participants may claim credit with Kingman Reef  QSOs  for  OC-085  if  they
need credit there - there are no date restrictions. To save questions,  IOTA
does not maintain a database of credits  with  deleted  /  archived  IOTAs".

QSL 4U1ITU & 4U1UN ---> Bring your QSO data with you and get your  QSLs  for
4U0ITU (2015), 4U150ITU (2015), 4U1UN, 4U70UN and  4UITU  at  the  Swiss  DX
Foundation's booth (A1-461-2) at Hamradio 2016  (Friedrichshafen)  on  24-25
June. Additionally you can also get QSL  cards  for  HB14SAF,  HB9SOLAR  and

YASME FOUNDATION GRANTS ---> On 15 June the Board of Directors of the  Yasme
Foundation (www.yasme.org) announced three grants in furtherance of  Yasme’s
goal of encouraging youth  participation  in  amateur  radio  and  operating
activities.  The  sixth  edition  of  the  Youngsters  on  the   Air  (YOTA)
conference will take place in July 2016 in Austria, and YASME is pleased  to
assist in helping young amateurs attend this meeting  that  otherwise  would
be unable to attend.
   The Yasme grant will enable two youth amateur radio operators from Kosovo
   to attend the YOTA conference. This will be the first time these amateurs
   will have  travelled  outside  their  home  country.  SHRAK  was recently
   admitted to the  IARU  as  a  member  society, an  additional step toward
   enabling Kosovo to be added to the ARRL DXCC entity list.
   Two youth operators from EARS will also be attending the YOTA conference.
   This extends Yasme’s support of the ET3AA station  and the previous grant
   enabling  travel  by   EARS  members  to  participate  in   the 2016  ARI
   International DX Contest from Estonia. EARS member participation furthers
   amateur radio activity  from  eastern  Africa and  encourages interest in
   amateur radio by other African youth.
   Three young amateurs from the  United  States  will  also attend the YOTA
   meeting with the assistance of the Yasme grant  and a similar grant  from
   the Northern California DX Foundation.   As  invited  members  of IARU in
   ITU Region 2, it is the hope of both Boards that they  will  return  with
   ideas for  extending  the  successes  of  YOTA to  young  North  American
   amateurs. [TNX W6SZN]
