This award is administered by the IOSA Committee and is the creation of

Les Hamilton GM3ITN, who has accepted advice and some alterations from

Gavin Taylor GM0GAV, Dave Warburton GM0LVI and Robert Ferguson GM3YTS.

Les Hamilton GM3ITN is the top U.K. station on the Islands on the Air

(IOTA) Honour Roll. He has devised an award that is extremely

challenging, particularly the higher graded awards.

We hope this award will encourage Amateur Radio operators from around

the world to contact or visit and activate some of the most beautiful

and remote parts of Scotland.

In order to encourage operations from the islands, there will be two

classes of awards, one for the Chasers and the other for those who go

out and activate the islands (the Activators).

The islands listed are the only ones eligible for these awards.

No other islands will be added.

Applicants should be licensed radio amateurs. A short-wave listerner

qualifies for the Chaser's Award.

Chasers and Activators have different goals to achieve and the awards

are graded as below:-


Basic 10 Islands in 6 Island Groups 5 Islands in 3 Island Groups

Silver 25 Islands in 7 Island Groups 12 Islands in 4 Island Groups

Gold 50 Islands in 8 Island Groups 25 Islands in 5 Island Groups

Supreme 75 Islands in 10 Island Groups 40 Islands in 7 Island Groups

Chasers must submit proof of contact with stations as designated above.

Activators must show evidence that they have made a minimum of 100

contacts from each island claimed, i.e. photocopied log details or

computer log disk.

Contacts should be made from the same DXCC country and must be made

with licensed amateur stations.

Contacts must have taken place since 1 November 1947 and must have

been made on the 1.8, 3.5, 7, 10, 14, 18, 21, 24, 28, 50, 144 Mhz bands.

Maritime mobile contacts are not allowed. All stations must be shown

to be land based.

Original QSL cards confirming the contacts must be submitted by chasers.

Any cards deemed to have been altered will be disallowed.

The Islands of Scotland Directory cost 6 pounds,10 US dollars or 16 IRC

and this should be applied for in the first instance.

The cost of the Directory includes the cost of the Basic certificate.

On applying for the Basic awards,applicants should send only sufficient

postage for the return of their QSL cards.

The individual cost of each other award (Silver, Gold, Supreme) is:-

5 UK pounds or 8 US dollars or 12 IRCS, plus return postage.

Please specify category of return postage required and allow for this

when including your postage fee.

In addition to the certificate, the Supreme Award entitles the

applicant to receive a Scottish Quaich, engraved with the applicants

callsign and award details. Please ask for details on applying for the

Supreme Award. The fee for this varies, depending on availability.
