ISLANDS ON THE AIR
Created in 1964 by Geoff Watts, a leading English short wave
listener, and taken on by the RSGB in 1985, IOTA is an amateur radio
activity program designed to encourage contacts with island stations
world- wide. The oceans' islands have been grouped into some 1200
"IOTA groups with, for reasons of geography, varying numbers of
"counters", ie qualifying islands, in each. The objective, for
the island chaser, is to make radio contact with at least one counter in
as many of these groups as possible and, for the DXpeditioner, to
provide such island contacts. For both it is a fun pastime adding much
enjoyment to on the air activity. Among its estimated 15-20,000
followers IOTA has become for a very large number a favorite, highly
regarded and absorbing activity program.

Logger32 is great for
tracking DXCC, IOTA, etc. It has been constructed to be a
highly user configurable general purpose Amateur Radio logbook with
computer control support for many radios and antenna rotators. It is not
a contesting log (although there is no real reason why it could not be
used for such.) and does not contain some features that might be found
in software specifically designed for this activity. The beta
version is being offered for free and appears to be very stable.
