    Ross Revenge,,, mmmm did I post about that, reecently............


    • GETTY IMAGES
      Radio Caroline's pirate radio ship 'MV Mi Amigo' ran aground at Frinton-on-Sea on the Essex coast during a storm on 20 January 1966. The station continued to broadcast intermittently, in various incarnations, until the Ross Revenge was shipwrecked off the Kent coast in 1991.

    Yep yesterday was the anniversary of the government cracking down and making it illegal to broadcast without a licence. They have now got their new AM frequency allocation after 50 years waiting and I was hoping they would have had the thing up and running for the anniversary but it didnt happen but its not too far away now. Its weird because it was the BBC that got the law changed and got them shut down yet the frequency they have got a licence for is the old AM BBC world services frequency lol.

    The frequency will be 648khz AM/MW hoping I might pick them up on my wire antenna around the garden

    Alf Garnett had a tin bath in front of the fire, he was lucky. We had a bath but no heating. If we were very lucky we got the Aladin paraffin heater.

    Got to say Radio Luxembourg was my favourite late night station as well.

    Didn´t listen to it late at night, and always had trouble finding the station. Once you had it the trick was keeping it there.  That didn´t seem to happen once bloody Dan Dare came on his programme was always fine.  That is probably before most of you lot were born though.

    That's exactly my memories of it, I had a shed where I worked on my bikes, allways had the radio on either Luxembourg or Caroline, you'd get it tuned in to one then the reception would start to fade so you'd fiddle around to try and get it better or jump channel, then that would be OK for a bit then go off, so it was fiddle around with tuner again, this went on and on so never got anything done to bikes pissing around with radio all night...
