EI HF IOTA Standings Table
The table below shows the number of IOTA references worked by EI stations participating in RSGB’s IOTA award programme, providing an insight into their performance in the programme. EI operators are requested to provide information to enable the Society’s HF Manager Dave EI3IO to keep the table up to date. Entries which have not been updated for 24 months or more may be removed from the table.

- Worked is the number of Island Groups worked and it is this column which determines a station’s standing and position in the table.
- Awarded is the number of confirmed IOTA Island Groups officially credited by the RSGB to a station listed in the Standings Table.
- The total entered in the Awarded column should therefore never be greater than the number of Island Groups in the Worked column unless an operator activating an Island Group has claimed a credit for that Group in accordance with IOTA rules.
- The total of the remaining columns – the IOTA Island Groups worked in each continent – should equal the total number of Island Groups shown in the Worked column.
The main IOTA meeting frequency is 14.260MHz. Others on SSB are 28.560, 28.460, 24.950, 21.260, 18.128, 7.055 and 3.755MHz. The CW frequencies are 28.040, 24.920, 21.040, 18.098, 14.040, 10.115 and 3530MHz. No specific CW frequency has been nominated on 7MHz but it is recommended that operations should include a frequency above 7.025 when the band is open to North America. These frequencies are not reserved for IOTA nets or the making of island QSOs but are shared with other users on a normal non-interference basis.
