New RAYNET - Isle of Man

The following e-mail is to be sent to off Island RAYNET Groups to advise them of recent local changes.

Dear RAYNET Members

The purpose of this e-mail is to update you on recent changes with regard to “RAYNET Isle of Man”.

With effect from 9th December 2008 the old Raynet IOM group has been assimilated into a new “RAYNET Isle of Man”, a registered company name (Registered Company 012816B - which is affiliated to the RSGB and incorporated within the Isle of Man Amateur Radio Society.
These changes are fully supported by the Isle of Man Government (Emergency Planning/Civil Defence) and will allow for the development of an organisation more suited to undertaking the emergency communications needs on the Island.

The new arrangements also mean new people to communicate/liaise with and they are as follows:-

First call out officer - Stuart GD0OUD phone:-01624 613226
First call radio operators – Matty MD0MAN and Steve GD7DUZ
Group Secretary – John GD0NFN phone: - 07624 439213

As the new group develops we hope to establish links with other RAYNET organisations and also improve our local, fixed radio communications facilities.
For all non-emergency communication/liaison with the group please contact the Secretary in the first instance.

Previous positions with titles similar to “Controller” are no longer valid positions within “RAYNET Isle of Man”.
