D44TWO QSO’s have now been uploaded to LOTW.
This is NOT a full upload. Uploaded are all that I have in the logbook plus the Digital Qso’s that Harald has made currently whilst in Cape Verde. SSB and CW QSO’s for his current trip have not been uploaded as these are held in paper logbooks and I have not yet had receipt of those. They will take time to transfer from paper to PC Log when I receive them so please be patient, it will not be a fast process.
Normal QSL Cards can still be obtained via M0OXO OQRS or Direct Post Mail.
More information has been posted on the IOTA website in relation to the Clublog QSO matching;
One of the first actions of Islands on the Air (IOTA) Ltd., the new managers of the programme, has been to expand the application routes on IOTA’s existing software system to include Club Log QSO Matches.
This is intended as the first step to the introduction of a much broader system of Paperless QSLing that is scheduled to be launched in the late Spring of 2017. Only a relatively small number of IOTA operations have been added at this time, mainly ones from islands which satisfy the criterion of one DXCC entity equals just one IOTA.
This action was intended to provide a test run on how Club Log QSO matching would work in due course on the new IT system. Even so, modest as this approach is, more than 10,000 QSO matches were obtained in the first week, and the first IOTA 100 Island applications have been received using this option exclusively. As with all new IT enhancements there were a number of bugs and queries raised which have now been resolved. Finally, to make use of this additional feature, sign in to the IOTA website and go to https://www.rsgbiota.org/mycredits/ and click on Club Log QSO Matches.
Bear in mind, this is not the full-blown system envisaged for introduction next year. We will expand the list of accepted operations over the coming weeks and months but, much as we would like to do more, it will be mainly in the area of recent operations from the rarer IOTA groups and, of course, ones that have uploaded logs to Club Log and indicated that they do not wish to delay or block IOTA QSO matching.

Well after 14 years I finally got there!
I was pleased to receive this Plaque from the ARRL yesterday and of course it has pride of place in the shack.
2016 has been a good year for the hobby with both DXCC Honor Roll and IOTA Honour Roll. I hope to add to it very soon with my most sought after Trophy, the IOTA 750 Shield. Fingers crossed.
Thanks again to Christian Cabre EA3NT who gave me the final entity I needed when he operated from Juan De Nova as FT4JA. Cheers Chris !

China has put the finishing touches on the world’s biggest radio telescope, whose 1,650-foot-wide dish will scan the heavens for signs of intelligent alien life, among other tasks.
On Sunday (July 3), technicians installed the last of the 4,450 panels that make up the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope’s (FAST) giant dish.
Project team members will soon begin testing and debugging FAST, after which Chinese scientists will use it for “early-stage research,” Xinhua reported. But the instrument will be available to researchers around the world when that phase is over — likely two to three years from now
Yesterday I was pleased to receive two confirmations by paper QSL Card for IOTA.
BD2RJ/2 was qrv back in 2009 from Changxing Island, Dalian provinca of China IOTA AS-151.
Qsl Card was received via Direct Post Mail.
