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.

N1MM Free Contest Logger

The N1MM Logger is a freeware program designed to do contest logging and some general logging. It is not a general logging program with award tracking etc. but it is mainly a contest logging program.

 Check it out: click here.

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.
