  1. Crispian St John on the Night Shift between 0256-0416. Caroline was using less than 10kw at this time along with the "Mickey Mouse" aerial. When Hungary switches on its carrier around 0400, reception gets bad. This was recorded in England https://pixeldrain.com/u/bqgcagDn Thanks Vincent for converting the cassettes.
  2. Andy Archer and Norman Barrington share the Night Shift on January 20th 1973. 0255-0355 https://pixeldrain.com/u/j1BBngw7 0355-0435 https://pixeldrain.com/u/r9YJKJAq Thanks to Vincent for converting the cassettes.
  3. Arnold Layne in the very early morning of 20th January 1973 recorded from 1367 khz. 0425-0513 (36min) https://pixeldrain.com/u/Homr27C2 0513-0600 https://pixeldrain.com/u/Cfqo6m9s Marc Van Amstel opens the Dutch Service 0600-0641 https://pixeldrain.com/u/T463Bty5 Many thanks to Vincent for converting these to mp3 files.
  4. This file OR-PdA-073AR is actually from 03-06-1973 as Norman Barrington gives the schedule for full programmes starting tomorrow (the 4th). Again thanks for sharing as I remember listening to this!
  5. Hi Douwe, That is a great recording. When you say from the Playa studio. Was this one of Peter's cassettes??? Ian
  6. Maybe they were not sure of their information?? Benghazi is 100 kw. This is what Robin wrote me in an e mail in 2010 YES ALL THE TX'S WERE REMOVED + THE STUDIO'S, POWER GENERATORS AND ANTENNA MAST. I SUPERVISED THE REMOVAL AND ALL WAS TAKEN TO KILOMETER 10 NEAR TRIPOLI. THE PLAN WAS TO INSTALL ALL OF IT ASHORE AT VARIOUS SITES. TO MY KNOWLEDGE NONE OF IT HAS BEEN USED SINCE. IF IT STILL EXISTS, IT WILL BE IN A VERY POOR STATE I'M SURE. THE 100KW WAS A PROTOTYPE WHICH I THINK WAS BUILT IN ITALY WITH THE SERIAL 002. I'M NOT AWARE OF ANY MORE 100KW SETS
  7. Sadly Robin died in 2018. I knew him from working at Radio ERI in Cork, Ireland where he was our engineer. A great guy! I asked Robin about the transmitters. He said they were taken from the ship and put in storage just outside Tripoli. The intention was to use them again on land, but Robin did not think this happened.
  8. Hi Juul, That was written by me. Hope you found it interesting. Ian
  9. Ben, I think the dj on the World Service is Crispian St John. 99% sure!
  10. Great recording! Thanks Jan-Fre
  11. You have hit the nail on the head!😀
  12. No Bert he claims he was on the Jeanine, which as we know was impossible in the 60’s.
  13. Thanks Piet, he was never on Radio Atlantis. It's a story!
  14. Jon, these internet radio streams have really opened the floodgates for these people who have "worked in radio for 40 years", yet nobody has ever heard of them. They appear on just about every stream going as well as many community stations in the UK because their programmes are free to air. On their profiles there are vague details of working on "many local and BBC stations" and then like this fellow working on "Radio Atlantis in the 60's" which is obvious fantasy as the station wasn’t on in the 60’s.
