Perhaps the most popular DXing awards program after DXCC is the ever-popular Islands On The Air activity. Established in 1964, it promotes radio contacts with stations located on islands around the world. Our guest presenters (over Zoom) are Cezar Trifu (VE3LYC) and Will Costelo (WC6DX). Cezar will be presenting first on the basics of IOTA, and then on some of his rare island activations. Cezar is an avid DXer and IOTA island activator. He is on the Board of Directors for IOTA. He has received many DX and IOTA awards. Following Cezar, Will Costelo, WC6DX, will speak on IOTA and DXing. He is an avid participant in DXing, IOTA and LOTA (lighthouses on the air). This is the presentation he was going to make at Visalia, at the IOTA banquet, so it will be great to be able to see it. We are super exited to have these two experienced DXers provide insight on this fun on-air program!
