EU-047. Oliver, DK7TX, will be active as DK7TX/p from Wangerooge Island between June 5-10th. Activity will be holiday style 20-10
meters. QSL via hishome callsign.

EU-114. Members of the Martello Tower Group will once again be active
as GP0PKT from Herm Island between October 4-9th.
Operators mentioned are Keith G6NHU/KB3WPE, Tony G0MBA, Richard G7HJK, Colin M1EAK, Kevin M0GWE, Yan M0YNK and Chris 2E0DBY.
The plans are to have three stations on the air: 2x TS-590 and 1x
TS-2000. Activity will probably be on 80/40/20/15/10 meters using SSB and RTTY (same as last time). Herm is one of the smallest Channel Islands, and although it's part of the EU-114 IOTA group, it's not activated very often. QSL via G6NHU, direct or by the Bureau.
For updates and details, see:

EU-123. William, GM0OBX, will be active as GM0OBX/P from Inchcolm
Island during the RSGB IOTA Contest (July 27-28th) as a Single-Op/ Unassisted/SSB-Mode/QRP/DXpedition entry. QSL via his home callsign.

NA-029. Operator Ken, K6LA, will once again operate from Prince Edward

NA-064. Jeff, KL2HD, will be active as KL7NWR on Attu Island, Aleutian
Islands, Alaska, between June 2-5th. Actual dates depend on ship schedule and weather. This is a relatively rare IOTA that many would like to contact. Look for KL7NWR on 20, 17, and 15 meters as propagation allows. Details on under KL7NWR.
Spotting assistance appreciated.
