For the record I haven't looked or researched the validity of this...Just wondering. Maybe someone who has the time to devote to this....Of maybe there's a secret expedition already on its way lol.... At the minimum maybe this is a new iota...

Who will be the first to activate HUNGA TONGA

Hunga Tonga ... according to "Googly Translate" it roughly means "good place to hang tons of antennas". I agree.

The truth is that the news is very interesting ... but I would call it a peninsula ... giving it the title of an island seems risky.

Gotta say I agree with you. Perhaps the IOTA committee will pick it up for a new OC-***. But I like that name Hunga Tonga, it has a ring to it, especially if you say it real fast 3 times.
