The 2021 Honour Roll and Annual Listings have been posted here on the IOTA website.
Despite the damage done by the Covid-19 virus to DXpeditioning in the past year, IOTA has still managed to record increased participation in the latest performance tables. The two main listings with a total 1667 entries show an increase of 19 over the same listings in 2020. Some 258 record-holders now have scores of 1000 or more IOTA groups, an increase of 2% on last year, and 590, unchanged, have scores of at least 750 groups, the number required for the IOTA Plaque of Excellence. Scores at the top continue to close with 66 record-holders breaking through the 1100 mark and 19 of them within 10 of the top score. Congratulations to leader 9A2AA on 1132 groups out of a possible 1136 that have seen activity, to I2YDX and I1JQJ who follow close behind and indeed to all who have joined the IOTA family or updated in the last year. Following a brief break Checkpoints have started processing applications again.
