DFES moving away from radio?

They may not be going digital, but they're moving away from the radio it seems with the new IRIS system and P1. Welshpool just got in trouble for not giving a radio turnout message and 6AR said "At this stage, we still require a radio message."

It was fun while it lasted :cry:

6AR just told an appliance that they must give a radio turnout until "change day". I guess that will mark the end of most of the radio traffic.
