IOTA NEWS (de G3KMA)....

* November 11th - IOTA Management has received a number of complaints that QSL card requests sent to Kadek, YB9BU, in accordance with his QSLing instructions on QRZ.com have not received a reply and similarly that email inquiries are not being answered. Emails from the IOTA Manager and mutual friends have also gone unanswered.
In the circumstances it can only be assumed that there is an interruption in the QSL manager service for all the many operations for which YB9BU acts as QSL manager and people would be well advised not to send further cards. We would also advise YB island operators for whom YB9BU acts or normally acts as manager to make other arrangements to ensure
satisfactory QSLing.
Acceptance by IOTA Management of further IOTA operations by YB9BU must be regarded as on hold until and unless the matter is resolved.

* November 30th - The IOTA Committee has been made aware that Dino
Island no longer meets the requirements laid down for qualification for IOTA and has decided that it should be withdrawn from EU-144 with effect from 1 January 2015. The distance separating the island from the mainland has reduced as the beach area gradually encroached into the channel and is now significantly less than the required 200 meters. Credit will continue to be given for contacts with Dino made before 1 January 2015.
The Committee has agreed to regard the following additional islets as counting for EU-144: Isca Maggiore, Isca Minore, Furmiculi Rocks, Godano and Mantineo - see the Italian Islands Award (IIA) list at
http://www.ari.it for the exact locations.
