IOTA DXPEDITION FUND ---> IOTA Ltd has from  1 September 2023  established a
DXpedition Fund  to help  reduce the costs  of expeditions  to the rarer and
less accessible IOTA groups. Administered by the IOTA Board it will consider
making grants to operations from IOTA references confirmed by less than  25%
of IOTA members  based on the  last 10-year listing  in  IOTA's  Most Wanted
List.  The grant request should be submitted more than 30 days  prior to the
operation's start.  The evaluation  and  grant process  is based  on various
criteria,  including the  rarity of the IOTA reference,  planned  number  of
stations on the air, of days operating, of contacts made, of bands and modes
used,  QSL and QSO matching practice  and  estimated cost of the  expedition
project. The Grant Application Form can be found here:
