This year I became more interested in the Island-On-the-Air (IOTA) award. I worked many new islands that year. In August 1987, I qualified for my first IOTA award - the IOTA 100 Islands of the World. In February 1987, I purchased my first color printer - an Okimate 20 printer for use with the Commodore 64. I paid $189 for it. During 1987, I added 10 new ones to my DXCC count.
