The new “Islands On The Air” website – unlike the old RSGB IOTA website – does not allow readers or users to upload or announce details of any particular island activities they may have planned for future.

Previously, registered users could simply complete an activation form and then see their upcoming activity listed along with others.

It seems a little crazy not to continue with that format, especially as the new IOTA World website is basically dedicated to “Islands on the Air”.

However, fear not! DX-World already announces mostly important or major IOTA activities, but also feels there is a niche to let everyone (large groups or individuals) to announce their own island activation plans.

It doesn’t matter if you’re visiting EU-120 or OC-001 or AF-004, we are happy to now announce & include ANY island activity.

Simply contact and provide details of your planned IOTA activation. Pictures are welcome. We will do the rest and get word out. Rare island or not, we want to know!
