> I; = Islands on the air

Are we attempting to retire up a primary table space (/i) or just being 
redundant and introduction confusion when trying to identify IOTAs?

My full feed APRSIS32 monitor shows 12 IOTA (/i) symbol stations active 
within the past 2 hours, so the symbol is being used, although I don't 
know if they're true activations or just people that like the island symbol.
