MPG, based at Weyhill in North-West Hampshire, was responsible for determining DTELS organisation maintenance policy and implementing associated support requirements to Headquarters and Field Service teams. It had been in existence for some 13 years before I transferred from field service in 1983.

During my eight years at Weyhill the group witnessed and was actively involved in seeing through great technological change in emergency service communications following the 1979 World Administrative Radio Conference.

With a period of some stability following the WARC change-out programme and departmental reorganisational changes arising from the planned privatisation of DTELS, the group and its centralised function was disbanded in 1992.
