IOTA 2020 Honour Roll & Annual Listings

Published on the IOTA Website;
”The 2020 Honour Roll and Annual Listings have been posted here on the IOTA website.
The two main listings with a total 1647 entries show an increase of 10 over the same listings in 2019. Early indications based on increasing take-up in the last three months point to a bumper year 2020.
Some 253 record-holders now have scores of 1000 or more IOTA groups, an increase of 9% on last year, and 590, up 2%, have scores of at least 750 groups, the number required for the IOTA Plaque of Excellence. Scores at the top continue to close with 63 record-holders breaking through the 1100 mark and 18 of them within 10 of the top score.
Congratulations to leader 9A2AA on 1129 groups out of a possible 1133 that have seen activity, to I2YDX and I1JQJ who follow close behind and indeed to all who have joined the IOTA family or updated in the last year.
Following a brief break Checkpoints have started processing applications again. Now is the time to make that submission if you wish to avoid the busy period later in the year.
G3KMA, 22 February 2020”

Charles M0OXO

I was born in the 1960’s and have lived all my life in the Coal Mining Town of Barnsley in South Yorkshire, Northern England. My parents were all from this area of Yorkshire and my father worked in the main Industry of the local Collieries as a face worker. I have been married to my wife Debbie for 35+ years and we have two children and two grandchildren.

I have been licensed for around 20 years after my interest was re-kindled when I retired from my role as a Police Officer within South Yorkshire Police Force. The latter few years were spent as Radio Operator in the Force Operations Control Room at Sheffield, before my career ended.

IOTA chasing is (and always has been) my real passion, as climbing the ladder to reach Honour Roll status was always my main aim. The 1000 Islands Trophy is still out of reach but I am heading in the right direction. I am currently a Board Member of IOTA Ltd and IREF.

In my free time I am a keen Photographer of Wildlife, Aviation, (anything really) but the QSL Manager role is my main passion within Ham Radio.
