Welcome to IOMARS. The official site of the Isle of Man Amateur Radio Society.
Suspension of all IOMARS meetings / gatherings until further notice.
The committee have reluctantly taken the decision to suspend all IOMARS meetings / gatherings until further notice.
Why are we doing this? The risk of catching or spreading the coronavirus / Covid-19 illness.
How long will this last? Until 15th April 2020, or until government / medical advice suggests otherwise.
The committee will monitor the situation and advise the membership accordingly. If you have any questions please ask a committee member by phone / radio.
Don’t forget we have an excellent repeater system on island https://manxrepeaters.com
Whilst meetings are suspended it has been suggested that we ‘meet up’ on the 70cm repeater GB3IM on a Wednesday evening.
