But it was late when the attacks went beyond the electronic. A failed deal with a nightclub owner named Manders went very wrong. He approached the Mebo II in a launch, reportedly carrying a woman and a child to deter attacks. DJs for the station made breaks in programming to report they were under attack and asked listeners to phone their main office to report it. Remember, there were no satellite phones in The tug threatened to spray water on the antenna until the Mebo II crew told them it would electrocute everyone on the tug.

That seems unlikely, but it did deter them from trying it. Eventually, the tug departed, but a Dutch Navy frigate came alongside.

Pirates Navigate the High Seas - HISTORY

Radio Veronica, another offshore station which was popular in the Netherlands, were afraid all this drama would lead to the Dutch government shutting them down. Their solution was to pay off RNI with about , pounds to shut down. Have you ever been listening to music and the DJ stops the song to call mayday?

Me neither. A small boat came alongside Mebo II and threw a bomb which started a fire. Mebo II was abandoned overnight and required repairs at sea. Three men were arrested in Amsterdam in relation to the bombing, with two subsequent arrests of people associated with Radio Veronica. Apparently, Radio Veronica had paid to force Mebo II out of international waters, where the crew could be arrested or the ship seized by creditors. This led to a year in prison for the perpetrators and also a law preventing the supply of pirate radio ships from the Netherlands. RNI operated through most of , but finally went off the air for good.

The ships were eventually sold to Libya where they continued to broadcast until the s when the Libyan Navy sank them for target practice. So was that really the end of pirate radio? Not exactly. Radio Caroline survives today as an Internet stream , and they have dabbled in satellite radio.

You can read their version of their history on their web site.

In , Radio Caroline went legit with a real AM radio license. As of , the station is now run by Zhang Yong in China. You can listen to it streaming, and apparently in some parts of the world on AM and FM. If you are interested in shipboard broadcast stations, you can find a comprehensive treatment on the Broadcast Fleet website. It even includes legal ships. It was called the Voice of Peace in and I do recall hearing it quite well on an inexpensive portable radio in Jerusalem. I believe the owners of the operation were Israeli and would transmit the Israeli news on the hour.

They did make a trip through the Suez Canal to broadcast toward Akkaba and Elat. I remember both Caroline and North Sea International well and years layer would end up working with Caroline DJ John Foster and be shown his photos of the transmitter and studio and his tales of the night he was on board and the fire started and their rescue. Great piece of history, I love to read about people fighting against stupid law and government monopolies.

I remember with pleasure listening to Radio Caroline at night in the period of when I lived in the UK. In the daytime, it was Radio Mi Amigo in Dutch, not the same programming but still fun to listen to. Or were they just being psychedelic? Camouflage themed psychedelic? The introduction of radar targetting during WW2 made such fancy paint jobs obsolete. I would be surprised if they found a ship still supporting the WW1 era camouflage and so would say they did this themselves for the psychedelic look and not for the camouflage.

As I understand these radio ships were moored in place so there would be no need to disguise your course and direction — Plus your firing out easily trackable high power radio waves. Did you read the article? I missed the part where it was stated, that ignoring the law turned out well, for the anarchists.

Respectfully whenever I read comments like your, I to wonder if comments liker yours are posted by those who only care about themselves unconcerned about others Not the merchants are any better, but in regard to the RF spectrum the merchants are unlikely to create an unusable chaos. Anyone wanting to play broadcasting magnate, come out here where the owls get the chickens, many unoccupied FM channels. I understand and respect the need for organization of the RF spectrum, but the total control the U.

I thought anyone who read my comment would have seen it was obviously about freedom of speech and not errant radio emissions, but I guess the anally retentive brigade has proven me wrong again. During my attempt to edit my response to your comment to two sentences, my comment was posted without the edit. Doug, you statist. Go read a book, declaring free speech as criminal activity dosent make everyone who dont comply an anarchist. And restricting the ways and means of free speech is tyranny nevertheless.

Nothing scare merchants more than successful not for profit enterprise. You missed any reference to Radio Hauraki in NZ. Now a legal broadcaster. Actually seems quite likely to me. Sea water is conductive, and actual antennas have been made out of it! Think full body electrocautery. Spraying water forms into droplets pretty quickly. Radio Caroline is Currently broadcasting on khz AM 24 hours a day as well as the Internet stream s.

  3. Concert Information?

A potted history, but somewhat incomplete I had RNI on under the bedclothes c and so miss the mid-eighties broadcasts. A whole load of land-based and ship-based recordings of this era are available at AZanoraks. Your reportage stops a bit short. I first started listening to pirate radio when I was 14 it was Radio Scotland, for decades I have built up a massive library of cassettes of the pirates over which I have in a room especially converted as a shrine to pirate Radio.

Again for decades I swapped recordings with like minded collectors from all over the world. I have supplied recordings to a lot of legal stations over the years to assist in documentaries. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
