IW new coverage map

for those wanting to know.. the new coverage map showings IWs even further reach from before

The OFFICIAL word on the repeater is in. The Ventnor site, with help from G8HUL is looking very much like it is now going to perform. 
We are excited that this is now a positive step forward to getting IW back in the air. 
We’ve deliberately not posted all the updates, as there is no point revving everyone up, only to have it quashed, and creating hysteria. 
Massive thanks to Paul IKI and Jeff G8HUL for producing the following mapping.
