Finally, there will be something worth listening to again!

From the Radio Caroline Website:

AM LICENCE ‐ A KILOWATT ON 648 Khz

We are pleased to announce that Ofcom have informed us that our application for an AM licence has been approved and that a licence will be awarded.

Tracey Crouch MP with Bob Lawrence

 

This is the end of – or a further step in – a process started by Bob Lawrence in 2010 and enthusiastically supported by Tracey Crouch MP. We thank them both and further thank the many other people who have helped along the way.

The basis of our application was that our traditional heartland was Essex and Suffolk, where the signal from our ships made first landfall and that we wished to entertain on AM, an audience that we have not been able to serve in this way since 1990.

We said that this audience may hear music radio of a style they remember and in some cases presented by the same people they remember.

That in essence is what we intend to do.

We can now announce that our AM frequency will be 648 kHz with a power of 1000 watts. This is ERP or simply the power radiated by the aerial.

A transmitter was imported from the Continent a few days ago and is now being modified to suit the frequency. There are further hurdles, but as you can see progress is being made.

Watch this space.
