Radio Caroline

Bericht door voorenmedia » 08 dec 2016 12:10

Radio Caroline heeft laten weten dat de aanvraag voor Community Radio bij Ofcom betrekking heeft op uitzendingen op de middengolf met een vermogen van 1 kW. Tot nu toe heeft Ofcom alleen vergunningen voor Community Radio verstrekt voor 50 watt, maar volgens Peter Moore van Radio Caroline zou er voor Caroline een uitzondering gemaakt moeten worden zodat de zender in geheel East Anglia te beluisteren is.

Creatief gevonden, een “community of interest” station:
Most community radio stations operate at around 50 watts, covering an area of around 5 kilometres, but Caroline boss Peter Moore has requested no less than 1000 watts to reach its community of interest base across East Anglia.

In the application, Peter Moore says: “We would however seek permission to operate at a considerably higher power level outside the “typical” limits suggested. Radio Caroline, is not a traditional community radio station seeking to serve a small geographical “community of place”. As set out elsewhere in this application, Radio Caroline can best be described as a “community of interest” station, with potential listeners spread throughout East Anglia. This means that our coverage requirements are therefore atypical.”

Radio Caroline allowed 1kW TX on 648 AM

Radio Caroline will broadcast on the former BBC World Service medium wave frequency of 648 kHz, after being awarded a community radio licence for East Anglia.

The station was given the go-ahead by Ofcom last month, and now says the regulator has also agreed to its request for a 1000-watt transmitter.

In a statement on the Radio Caroline website, the station said: “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.”

The new Radio Caroline will play album tracks and had proposed a coverage area from Ipswich to Diss and Bury St Edmunds to Saxmundham. Some programmes will be broadcast from studios in Kent, and others via a link to the Ross Revenge ship. The station has previously said that, if practical, it aims to get on air in time for the 50th anniversary of the Marine Offences Act on 14th August.
