Radio Caroline
648 kHz

Radio Caroline was founded in 1964 and was a pirate radio station that transmitted from five different ships until 1990. Although it was an unlicensed station, it was not an illegal operation. In 2017, Radio Caroline received a community license to broadcast to Suffolk and north Essex areas and since 22 December 2017, Radio Caroline has been transmitting its 1 kW signal using the mast abandoned by the BBC World Service at Orford Ness. The signal does pretty well as it was heard with a very good signal on the Hilgenriedersiel, Germany SDR which I used to listen to them for my reception report. On-the-air DJ Pat Edison kindly sent the QSL seen below by email within two hours of my sending the report to him.
