  1. Ben je dan voor een (behoorlijke) kiesdrempel? Nadat jij uitgebreid je visie hebt gedeeld.
  2. Vlak voor zijn tweede Caroline avontuur was hij ( in 1972) nog even terug vanaf de MEBO II RNI 220-14-09-72-Spangles Muldoon-Kent Request Hour- 23.00-0.00.mp3 https://pixeldrain.com/u/rxn3TLGt
  3. Als RNI weer eens op een andere frequentie zat, duurde het even voor dat de stoorzender volgde, ook was er een periode dat er regelmatig licht van frequentie (heen en weer) werd gewisseld om de stoorzender (tijdelijk) te ontlopen. Er waren trouwens ook verschillende stoortonen die gebruikt werden.
  4. Ik ook niet. En dan kan ik je niet meer volgen, zal wel aan het warme weer liggen. :-)
  5. Nee Henk, dit is de zelfde opname als die van Rob Mesander met datum 10-07-70.
  6. ? Komt Extra AM nu eerder in de lucht dan dat vreemde tijdstip van 7.55 uur? Op de verre zandgronden gaat men blijkbaar vroeg naar bed en staan de potentiële luisteraars pas laat weer op. 😉
  7. Ik vertrouw meer op de volgende informatie, waar er het nodige valt af te dingen, op bijvoorbeeld de paranormale gaven van Gerard Croiset. https://skepsis.nl/croiset/ https://www.kwakzalverij.nl/nieuws/paragnost-gerard-croiset-genas-niemand/ Oké, dan houd ik het hierbij.
  8. "Lijst van prijzen voor bewijs van het paranormale" https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lijst_van_prijzen_voor_bewijs_van_het_paranormale En nog nooit een prijs geclaimd. "Mensen die sterk in het paranormale geloven, hebben vaker dan sceptici een verkeerde voorstelling van wat toeval betekent. Ze zien ook sneller verbanden en patronen die er niet werkelijk zijn en maken graag gebruik van intuïties die hun verstand buitenspel zetten." https://skepsis.nl/paranormale-intuities/

  10. Later, tijdens de opleving van de vrije radio stations in Den Haag jaren 90, nog gehoord op Trend FM.
  11. Heel leuk programma voor de avond, veel naar geluisterd begin jaren 80. :-)

  13. " on April 15th, 1970, the first jamming transmitter was put on the air, starting the so-called "jamming period" for RNI. I do remember it very well: the first jamming could be heard right in the middle of the record "Spirit In The Sky" by Norman Greenbaum. The Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications started jamming the medium wave transmitter with a 800 c/s tone from a naval radio station at Rochester. In the newspapers it was stated that it was done on request of Italian and Norway radio stations." https://www.icce.rug.nl/~soundscapes/DATABASES/RNI/rni05.shtml
  14. Bill Brightstein - If It Moves Funk It. "Produced by Greenpea Records in 1984 (one of the many subsidaries of East Anglian Productions!)" En East Anglian Productions= Ray Anderson= Laser Hot Hits 576 Power Play in 1987 om het opnieuw te promoten. https://www.45cat.com/record/nc928046uk https://forums.jinglemad.com/index.php?p=/discussion/9492/bill-mitchell-singing http://janfrevos.nl/1987.htm
  15. "Service Message: Friday 5th . 648 has been restored to full power by late morning following replacement of a failed fuse. Further onsite investigation and testing did not reveal any underlying cause for the failure." https://www.radiocaroline.co.uk/#home.html
  16. De herinneringen van Radio Caroline dj Phil Mitchell, betreffende de testuitzendingen op 389, in 1975. "After months of only being able to broadcast in the evenings, we were excited to learn that we were to begin broadcasting on two frequencies. Caroline was to be on 389 metres during the day and on both 259 and 389 metres in the evenings, from seven in the evening when Radio Mi Amigo closed down. At last, we assumed that we were going to be able to begin restoring Radio Caroline to her former glory as an all day music station. Chicago was in his element as he beavered furiously, building the diplexer to connect two transmitters to the same antenna and after a few weeks, he was ready to begin testing. These tests were initially performed at night when both radio stations had ceased normal programming, but very soon after, we were running both transmitters during the day. Radio Mi Amigo on 259; and non-stop music from Radio Caroline on 389. Despite our repeated pleas, Peter would not let us begin programming on the new frequency. None of us could understand why until we returned to England, only to find that the ancient 10-kilowatt transmitter used for 389, could only just be received on the south east coast barely eight or so miles away. The experiment at this time was a complete failure and tests were abandoned soon after and any ideas of daytime programming shelved, as parts necessary to get the transmitter working properly were either not available or not affordable. We were at our lowest ebb at this point. All Chicago's work seemed to have been wasted and our efforts and plans to make Caroline an all day station were, at least temporarily, dashed. The following year, after I had left Caroline to join the Voice of Peace in Israel, Chicago did eventually get the 389-transmitter going at somewhere near full power, and some worthwhile transmissions were made, but I was long gone by then and sunning myself in the hot Mediterranean sunshine on the MV Peace." https://www.icce.rug.nl/~soundscapes/DATABASES/CAR/car19.shtml
  17. Vele weken in de zomer en herfst van 1975, met veel goede muziek en af en toe een live programma, redelijke ontvangst in het westen van Nederland. "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. The first speech broadcast on that frequency took place on Sunday 14th September when, during a storm, a small boat sailing near the Mi Amigo got into difficulties and the taped shows on both frequencies were interrupted so that an appeal for help for the sailors could be transmitted. 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." https://www.offshoreradio.co.uk/car76.htm
  18. In Wuppertal? Kon je ook de testuitzendingen van Radio Caroline op 389 (toen voor de Engelse kust uitzendend) ontvangen in 1975?
  19. Zoals bij Radio Caroline in (begin) 1973, met (bijvoorbeeld) het uitzenden van de Marlboro sigaretten reclames, daarna werd er een groot aantal sloffen sigaretten van het bekende merk, naar de Mi Amigo gebracht.
  20. In de praktijk was het dus anders dan volgens de theorie. Op laag vermogen was de ontvangst van Radio Atlantis, de eerste twee maanden van 1974, vooral in de avond moeizaam in het westen Eind februari 1974, toen dankzij het in gebruik stellen van de oude Radio Capital generator, het vermogen een paar kilowatt omhoog ging, werd de ontvangst overdag redelijk goed en was het tijdens de donkere uren ook veel beter te volgen. Pas na 5 maanden uitzenden blijkbaar.
  21. No, only the (good) memories of that day. Also the next day was great, with a super long John Harding show. Radio Atlantis 13-08-1974: 6.00 Dave Owen 9.00 John Harding 18.00 Dave Rogers 21.00 Debbie England
  22. De volgende dag*** (maandag) was ook al zo gezellig, heel de dag geluisterd, een van de mooiste dagen (voor mij) wat offshore radio betreft. *** Programma 12-08-1974: 6.00 Continuous music 7.00 Dave Owen 9.00 John Harding 12.00 Andy Anderson 15.00 Debbie England 18.00 Crazy Show- Steve England/Andy Anderson 19.00 Steve England 21.00 John Harding (Eigen aantekeningen) Was in het westen niet nodig, goed te ontvangen, vlak naast RNI die dagen, op een gewone portable radio.
  23. "For example if you were to set up two transmitters at the same place, one at the high end of the band and the other at the low end, both with the same power, and you measured how strong the signal was at various ranges over good ground you will find: At one mile, no difference; at twenty miles, 16 to 1 in favour of the low frequency; at 200 miles, a staggering 150 to 1 in favour of the low frequency."
