DECEMBER 2, 2020 – As news of Covid vaccines emerge – with hopefully an improving picture across the world by the middle of next year – plans for this particular island activity will restart after March 2021. Future updates will be posted here.

AUGUST 25, 2020 – Earlier this year, an experienced IOTA team were issued with the callsign ST6SIT. Their intention was to activate Mukawwar island, AF-115 – a never before activated IOTA in the Red Sea, off Sudan. Paperwork, on the ground support and planning was ongoing then Covid-19 struck. Like everyone and everything else, the team will wait until the Covid situation improves globally with a view to eventually renewing the ST6SIT license and restarting plans.
