IOTA SURVEY (South Korea). Han, DS2GOO, and the members of Korea Contest Club are politely asking fellow DXers/Contesters what South Korean IOTA references are needed in a opened survey online at:
Anyone may vote and choose multiple IOTA references possible in this
survey. Expiration of this survey is end of June.
After the survey, they will not only provide an official result to the DX communities but also refer to it for their next IOTA activities.
They hope for many votes from the world and want to know the actual
demands for HL IOTA groups.
This 3 minute multi-purpose personal "Research" Survey is for both IOTA Programme Participants (those who submit QSLs for IOTA credit), as well as for NON-Participants from the DX Community.
With about 40% of all DXCC entities being IOTA counters, I am also very interested in reasons why more DX'ers never submit QSLs for any IOTA Award credit.
The IOTA Committee has not asked for this questionnaire to be issued,
and any info sent to them will be out of courtesy to the Committee. The
survey data will be an assistance in my future IOTA Expedition planning,
videos and publications.
Tnx in advance to all those who participate in this brief survey which
is "ANONYMOUS" with NO Callsign and NO email address required.
