Posted on the IOTA Website from Roger G3KMA;
The appeal has now reached GBP £17,360 on its way to our initial target of GBP £25,000 needed to bring to fruition the paperless QSLing project – see previous IOTA News items. We have to thank 182 contributors in 36 countries for their generosity. It is just a matter now of one more push to reach the target. We reported last month that enhancements to the existing IT in July have seen two thirds of new applicants using the Club Log paperless QSLing option for all or most credits claimed and well over half of all submissions are using it to some degree. Overall some 36% of all credits claimed since early July are QSO matches and the team say that over 30,000 QSO matches are pending submission. This continues to make huge savings for applicants which will grow rapidly as we expand the list of activations in the paperless QSLing pool and bring online the complete IOTA rewrite late next Spring.
We invite IOTA enthusiasts wherever located to join our Happy Band of Friends of IOTA. You can make a payment through PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org but make sure to add in the comments field “Friends of IOTA” and your callsign to identify you.
