CLUB LOG & IOTA ---> "I have made Club Log's first IOTA feature live",
Michael G7VJR announced on 27 January. "The Call Tester is now capable of
identifying IOTA islands (groups and island names), with time frames, maps
of the locations and comments added by the RSGB IOTA team to help with any
ambiguities". Please note that "none of the research for these IOTA
definitions originated in Club Log", and that "the only way an IOTA
definition will be added is when the IOTA Validation Team choose to do
that".

CLUB LOG'S MOST WANTED LIST ---> The latest Most Wanted List, generated on
31 January, is available at https://secure.clublog.org/mostwanted.php. The
information is derived from QSOs uploaded to Club Log (currently 407
million log entries available for analysis) and, to improve quality, only
QSOs that have QSLs confirmed are considered to be worked. The most wanted
charts are rebuilt once per month, on average.

E51PT ---> After being QRT since 1984, Pia Taraeka ("Papa Pia"), E51PT is
back on the air from Manihiki (OC-014), North Cook Islands "thanks to the
generosity of members of the Western Washington DX Club". He can operate CW
and SSB on 80-10 metres "running 100 watts into an all band dipole". QSL via
N7BX, direct only (no LoTW). [TNX The Daily DX]

INDEXA NEWSLETTER ---> The Winter 2017 edition of the International DX
Association's Newsletter (INDEXA) is now available for download at
www.indexa.org/newsletters.html. This issue contains the story of CY9C (St.
Paul Island 2016). [TNX K8YC]

IOTA DINNER ---> The 22nd Annual Islands On The Air (IOTA) Dinner will be
held on 21 April at the Visalia Conference Center in conjunction with the
68th International DX Convention. As the IOTA Dinner is not included in the
main Convention registration, there will be a separate registration and fee
for it. See www.dxconvention.com/pages/dinners-iota.html or contact Will,
WC6DX (wc6dx[@]sbcglobal.net) for information. [TNX WC6DX]

V63DX ---> Sho, JA7HMZ has cancelled his 17-24 February [425DXN 1341]
operation from Pohnpei, Micronesia. He was expected to be QRV as V63DX and
