IOTA EU-117 & EU-133 GROUPS - This is an abridged version of the official announcement dated 16 June that can be found on the RSGB IOTA's website. Following the decision by the ARRL to delete Malyy Vysotskiy Island (MVI) from the current DXCC list as of 17 February 2012, the IOTA Committee has considered action to be taken with regard to the future of EU-117. A consultation conducted by an enlarged IOTA management group produced a clear majority in favour of splitting EU-133 to form two groups within the Gulf of Finland, North and South. The dividing line has been set at 60 degrees, 15 minutes north. The islands now constituting the two groups can be seen via the Search facility on www.rsgbiota.org. The change has an effective date backdated to 17 February 2012. Past credits for MVI will continue to stand and new opportunities are created for contacting EU-117. Record-holders need take no action regarding existing credits as they will not be deleted as a consequence of this change, nor in the case of EU-133 credits need they be transferred unless requested.

OH10X/MM - Kristina Cruises Ltd with Radio Arcala, OH8X of Finland, are in the process of testing whether a permanent Amateur Radio station will suit the maritime environment and serve DXers in their leisure time, whether cruising in the Mediterranean or off West Africa or just doing island-hopping in the Caribbean. The onboard station will be active at the peak propagation hours to various continents on 14267 kHz on 20-24 June. The test cruise will take the ship to Estonia (ES), Gotland, Sweden (SM1), Aland Islands (OH0), and back to Finland. The objective for the first run is to look at potential interference issues both ways - from the Amateur Radio station to the ship's navigation system and from the ship's advanced PC networks to the reception of Amateur Radio transmissions.

YASME AWARDS - The Yasme Foundation has for many years offered two Yasme Awards, available at no cost to qualifying applicants. The first Yasme Award, in the form of a handsome plaque, is offered to those amateurs who submit proof of 30 QSOs with Yasme officials and DXpeditions that have at least one Yasme official as a participant. The second, the Yasme Supreme Award, is in the form of a representation of the YASME boat used by Danny Weil in his around-the-world DXpedition and is available to those who submit proof of 60 QSOs with Yasme officials and DXpeditions with a Yasme official as a participant. After a year-long evaluation of the rules for qualifying call signs, the Board of Directors is pleased to announce that the rules for qualifying call signs have been revised. As a result, many call signs have been added to the list. The revised list of call signs eligible for both awards is available at http://www.yasme.org/DXpeditions.html
