Following agreement with the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB), management of the Islands on the Air (IOTA) program has transitioned to “Islands on the Air (IOTA) Ltd,” a new not-for-profit company. This entity will assume full responsibility for all aspects of the program. The company has been registered in the names of its current directors — Roger Balister, G3KMA, and Stan Lee, G4XXI; a full board of directors will established.
“It will take a little time to carry through all aspects of the changed governance, but IOTA enthusiasts should be assured that the new company is fully committed to completing the paperless QSLing project that will allow electronic confirmation of contacts,” Balister said.
He added that no significant policy changes are anticipated.
