DX World have announced the results of their poll for the DXpedition of the IOTA Marathon. The winner was the HP0INT team who activated all six IOTA groups in Panama. LU6W and FO/KH0PR were second and third respectively. Congratulations to all concerned and indeed to all DXpeditioners who participated in the Marathon. When the Marathon results are published, you will see what an amazingly successful event it was. Specially engraved trophies will be awarded to the Top 3 DXpeditions at the RSGB IOTA Conventon in July. Our thanks to Col at DX-World.net for organising the survey. Full results are at http://dx-world.net/2014/result-dxpedition-of-the-iota-marathon/.

Our thanks to DX World for the following: "The IOTA Marathon took place between 1 January, 2012 and 31 December, 2013. Hundreds of expeditions were carried out during this period of time. In collaboration with RSGB IOTA, DX World wishes to capture the intensity of this effort during the Marathon by inviting readers to vote for their favourite IOTA Marathon DXpedition. Go to http://dx-world.net/iota-marathon-dxpedition-of-the-year/. DXpeditions to IOTA groups which were larger in scope, and have already been included in DXCC DXpedition of the Year 2012 and 2013 polls have not been included in the list. This doesn’t diminish the dedication and effort of those teams, but rather focuses our project exclusively on the IOTA Programme. Our deepest appreciation to all IOTA activators, who through their dedication and hard work, made the IOTA Marathon such a great event. Thank you! 73, Cezar (VE3LYC), Col (MM0NDX), Christian (EA3NT) and Dragan (K0AP)"
