With the IARU contest out of the way, the next "big one" is the IOTA Contest on 
24/25 July (1200z to 1200z). There should be plenty of island activity, as 
always, with lots of island expeditions already announced. This year it's also 
a great opportunity to work islands towards the IOTA 2004 40th Anniversary 
Award (for details go to the Chiltern DX Club (CDXC) Web pages at 
www.cdxc.org.uk ). Many European islands count for premium points for the award 
during July. An up-to-date list of expected operations appears on NG3K's Web 
site (http://www.cpcug.org/user/wfeidt/Misc/iota2004.html) and on DL2VFR's Web 
pages (http://www.iota-post.de/iotatest/hauptteil_iotatest.html) - thanks to 
both of these supporters.


The contest rules are unchanged from 2003 and can be found on the RSGB HFCC Web 
site (www.rsgbhfcc.org ). If you take part, we are very keen to receive your 
log. Logs go to iota.logs@rsgbhfcc.org (not rsgb.org - this was an error on the 
Web site and has been corrected). This year you will get an acknowledgement 
e-mail, asking you to visit a Web page to complete your submission. This way we 
can ensure that we will not need to get back to you to check on the exact 
category you have entered, etc. My thanks to Marios 5B4WN/G0WWW for helping to 
write the scripts for this. It will save a lot of post-contest correspondence 
with entrants. E-mail logs should be sent with a single (ideally, Cabrillo) 


There is good news if you are a CT user, which is that Ken K1EA has now 
implemented Cabrillo for the IOTA contest. Please ensure you are using the 
latest version of CT, and you will be able to send in a conformant Cabrillo 
log. Most other logging programs (SDI, Writelog, N1MM, TR, LuxLog, etc.) 
already support Cabrillo for the IOTA contest.


A reminder, if you are deciding what category to enter, that Braco OE1EMS has 
kindly compiled a list of records for the contest, and they appear on the IOTA 
Contest pages on the RSGB HFCC Web site (see above).


We look forward to receiving your IOTA contest log. If you have any queries, 
you can contact us at iotacontest@rsgbhfcc.org
