From RSGB HFCC (Posted March 24th, by the RSGB Communications Manager, Heather Parsons):
IOTA Contest and additional contests — We have reached a point with COVID-19 that it is inappropriate for us to run the IOTA Contest in July 2020 in its usual format. We cannot encourage our participants to operate in multi-operator groups nor to travel to island locations where visitors are not currently welcome. We would like your opinion on whether we should cancel outright or should retain a contest this year for single operator, home stations only.

We are also conscious that a large number of our members are going to be spending more time at home than normal. Unable to enjoy many of our favorite outdoor contests we are proposing a series of home-based day-time contests to entertain and support one another.

Both these issues are detailed in a survey which we invite you to
complete. This is at
The survey is open until Friday 3 April after which the outcomes will be made public.

PLEASE NOTE: Since the Webmasters of the new <> have decided NOT to post or dedicate a Web page to announce upcoming IOTA operations, PLEASE send your IOTA operations information to the OPDX, and we will post it here in an upcoming bulletin……
