vertical repeat

I have searched the forum since i remember see something similar in the past.. but i wasn't able to find... so any help is welcome... I need to vertical repeat the string 1 and 2 until the end of the file.
Code:

Input/FB80
  .    (data after/before)
text text text text tex  STRING1
  .    (data continues)
text text text text tex  STRING2
  .    (data continues)

Output
  .    (data continues)
text text text text tex  STRING1
  .                      STRING1
  .    (data continues)  STRING1
  .                      STRING1
text text text text tex  STRING2
  .                      STRING2
  .    (data continues)  STRING2
  .                      STRING2

i see something using splice in the past, So two questions come up
1)is splice the only operator now (z/os 1.12, 1.13 or 2.1) that can be used to do this ?
2)could someone point me to a sample code to achieve the above described ?? by the way..i was never a splice fan, don't know why

IFTHEN=(WHEN=GROUP with BEGIN for your data-to-copy-position,length,NE,C' ' and then PUSH the data-to-copy to the data-to-copy-position.

Most SPLICE usage is superseded by JOINKEYS. If you are up-to-date you will rarely need to look at SPLICE.
