  1. The activation of an Island is always a good notice but, always the same Island ?.
    In the SA 055 group there are others Island never activated, like Solís, Lucha, Oyarvide, etc…
    In the Buenos Aires Province there are many Islands of the groups SA 021 and SA 022… Why not Wood, Trinidad, Ariadne, Bermejo, Gaviota, Embudo, Flamenco and other Islands ?
    I think that the RCA can activate those Islands; its the bigger RC in Argentina with resources for make an activation different of Martín García Island, near BA.

    Thanks a lot,
