QSOs on and after 1960-06-25 count for the entity of Glorioso, which comprises the islands Grand Glorieuse, Vertes and Île du Lys.
The IOTA reference for Glorioso Island is AF-011.
Glorioso became a French possession in 1892.
Comoros,, Seychelles and Madagascar all claim sovereignty of the islands.
From 1960 until 2007 Les Îles Eparses, which includes Glorioso, were administered by the prefecture of Réunion, under the authority of the Minister responsible for overseas territories. During that period Reunion callsigns were used, appended with /G. Since 2007-02-21, Les îles Eparses have been administered by TAAF, and the callsigns are now of the form FT#G.
Glorioso is a whitelisted DXCC entity. The following table lists stations known to have been QRV from Glorioso Island, and which are thought to be good for DXCC credit.
The callsigns below are the only ones that Club Log will map to Glorioso Island, and only for QSO dates within the exception date range. These callsigns have been taken from QSL cards and other sources.
Callsigns that are not listed below, or QSOs outside the exception date range, will be not be mapped to Glorioso Island, but will be mapped as INVALID.
