Isles FM off the air

Isles FM, based on Seaforth Road, Stornoway has been off the air since Tuesday this week, and management at the community radio station are keen to let their listeners know that they are aware of this and are getting expert advice on what has happened.

They said: “Isles FM continues to work at identifying the damage to our transmission network, which we believe was caused by an unknown surge or lightning strike.

“We are hoping to be back with you by next week, if not earlier, and will continue to prepare excellent, local, volunteer-led programmes for your listening enjoyment.
