Manx Emergency Communications

The IOMARS are pleased to announce the establishment of “Manx Emergency Communications” a group of radio amateurs who will be available as requested to provide on Island effective manned radio communication systems.
The group will meet on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at the Foxdale shack and establish radio communication where possible on a Sunday @ 18:30hrs local time on 144.6125 MHz. If that frequency is occupied, 144.775 MHz will be used. Stations unable to make contact on these simplex frequencies should call on the GD repeater.
As the group develops it will offer training and live communication exercises which should be of interest to all Amateurs what ever communication mode they like to use; all IOMARS members are welcome to join this group.
Please send your details to iomars@manx.net with “MEC” in the subject line.

Emergency Communications UK frequency planning has allocated 144.6125, 433.750, 70.400 and 51.970 for use by IOM operators.
