GD and IM Repeaters on Snaefell Mountain

I have been asked by a number of members as to the time line for the return to full power of both stations, and on behalf of the chairman and committee. The information below - I hope will provide members with that.

We are awaiting an installation slot now from the communications division of government - they asked if it could be delayed until after the T.T. period - It was felt that this was prudent so to do as we require a full specification install - not a quick fit because of the hostile environment offered at the top of the mountain.

As soon as further information is available - such as an install date it will be posted here.
Mr Blackburn also purchased antenna and feeders for the IOMARS to assist us in completing the antenna installation and for this we are most grateful to him.
