Radio Caroline testing on 648 kHz

Caroline 648 testing

A test signal with continuous music and announcements reported today.

Reception reports on Facebook from the UK, Holland, Belgium, France and Austria.

Some reports from mainland Europe refer to a co-channel Romanian or Slovenian station.

I think this is at a lower power than the permitted 1 KW.

Much excitement in anorak circles!

Note that if you’re interesting in monitoring 648 kHz but live outside the broadcast footprint, you can easily listen and record via the U Twente WebSDR.

    Correction to my previous post:
    If you are having trouble receiving Radio Caroline on 648KHz I am selling some tuned ferrite rods on ebay which may help.
    There is also a link to a couple of demonstrations of their use at the bottom of the listing here:

    I have sold about 7 so far and they seem to work well for most people.

    Caroline 648 is go!

    From the Caroline Website!
    Radio Caroline AM service to open

    Our aerial mast at the transmitter site

    Weather and technology permitting, our programmes on 648Khz will commence originating from the Ross Revenge at 7.00AM on Friday 22nd December.

    The changed schedule for the day will be :
    7am Johnny Lewis
    9am Top Fifteen
    10am Ray Clark – with the official launch at midday.
    2pm Kevin Turner
    5pm Resume normal programmes

    No doubt Bob Lawrence, Martin Fisher and Jerry Wright will personalise their evening shows to mark the day.

    Of course we are delighted to have found and secured what must be the best possible AM transmission site for our service. We thank Cobra Mist Ltd for this facility whilst noting that this is a private site which cannot at this time be visited.

    So, another date for the Radio Caroline calendar of events and the inevitable question. Where do we go from here?

    HI from Peter in Sheffield
    Radio Caroline’s test transmissions on 648 MW are strong and clear all day across Sheffield even in the city centre and on a small transistor radio two. but at night it is very different radio Caroline is still strong but a Spanish station also on 648 MW comes in over the top of radio Caroline I find that very annoying but in the daytime radio Caroline in Sheffield on 648 MW is about as strong as bbc Radio Sheffield. Radio Caroline in the day time overrides most of the electrical interference in Sheffield city centre.
