De golflengte 389 was al bewezen goed door Radio 390 tussen september 65 en juli 67.


Jammer dat het een paar jaar later in 1975, op die mooie (vrij) lage golflengte, helaas (toch) niet goed ging.


'' On the morning of Sunday 24th August some non-stop unannounced music broadcasts went out from the Mi Amigo on 773 kHz, 388 metres. These tests went on all day and the following morning as well but at midday both transmitters had to go off so that work could be carried out on the aerials.


The stations were off until the 28th and, when they returned, 1187 kHz was on low power. Caroline closed at midnight for engineering work for a number of days but, by the beginning of September, programmes were back to normal and on full strength.


Music broadcasts continued on 773 kHz and jingles identified these as being from Caroline, although no announcements were made, and signal strength was low. 


At the beginning of October, some actual programmes, as opposed to non-stop music, went out on 773 kHz and reception reports were requested although the power was still very low. Too low. The signal was not strong enough.


On 15th October these test transmissions came to an end. It would be some months before Caroline would be able to launch a second service.''
