Note: This list includes operations where validation material was volunteered, ie not specifically
required for credit to be given. In all cases, cards now submitted will be accepted by Check-
points if they meet normal standards. This means that the island name should be printed on the
card.


OPERATIONS FROM WHICH VALIDATION MATERIAL IS AWAITED

Note 1: Checkpoints are not authorised to credit QSL cards for an operation where validation
is required.

Note 2: AF-068 Operation by 5C2SG/P on 19 and 20 March 2010 - the Moroccan National
Society ARRAM have officially informed the IOTA Committee that the 5C2SG/P activity from
Herne Island last March was not authorised by the Moroccan licensing authorities and, as such,
broke Moroccan licensing conditions. In these circumstances I regret that we had no alternative
but to rule this operation as invalid for IOTA. We have informed Simon, IZ7ATN. According to
the advice received from ARRAM the problem related only to the type of licence applied for &
issued and not to any other considerations. A valid operation from Herne Island AF-068 should
be possible if correct procedures are followed.
