Radio Caroline on 531KHz

There is some speculation as to whether or not the current Radio Caroline is the same Radio Caroline that broadcast from the North Sea, but I won't go into that here. Real or fake, Radio Caroline, run by Peter Moore, has been broadcasting an RSL (when they could have got much more coverage for less money by staying pirate, not giving in to Ofcom) over the Easter weekend. Programmes came live from the Radioship Ross Revenge, moored at Tilbury Docks, Essex. This marks the 46th anniversary of Radio Caroline, which started on Easter weekend 1964, with test transmissions stating 27th March and proper transmissions on 28th.

Happy Birthday Radio Caroline! :-)

I made a few recordings of the RSL from Remote Hams using Barney's TenTec RX320D and Oui's Icom-pcr2500. The audio was quite bassy, others have also said this, that is a problem at the station, not my recordings. Here they are:
