** This covers only HR6SI cards. Some people reported receiving HR2RCH/HR6
QSLs confirming contacts made with the HR6SI callsign. The Radio Club de Hon-
duras has now informed the IOTA Committee that it will send replacement HR6SI
cards to these amateurs & by direct mail if that was the way the QSL was received.
Please do not ask the IOTA Committee or checkpoints questions about this at this
time (the Committee will keep the situation under review).

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 Checkpoints if they meet normal standards. This means that
the island name should be printed on the card.
