New allocation on 146-147 MHz - but not on the Isle of Man!

The RSGB VHF manager (G4SWX) recently presented information about the new allocation of 146-147 MHz to be allowed for UK licence holders; but it seems that this allocation will not be allowed to the Isle of Man, Guernsey or Jersey.

It seems like we are considered to be on the "High Seas".
