GB2RS news from the Isle of Man

From RSGB website:-

Two new GB2RS readings

Two new GB2RS services start later today. At 6.30pm, Mike, GD6ICR will lead with a news reading via GB3IM on the Isle of Man. In Northern Ireland at 7.30pm, the news will be read on DMR via GB3OM, GB7LY, GB7UL and GB7HB. To be able to receive the news on DMR via these repeaters, users will have to programme a new Talk Group into their radios. This new service, the first of its kind in the UK, will be receivable via these repeaters on Slot2 TG8. We are grateful to Paul, MI1AIB for agreeing to begin this service and if anyone can assist Paul, please contact Philip Hosey, the Region 8 RSGB Manager, at for further information
