Radio Dan - History

Radio Dan broadcast from the same ship as Galei Hayam Hatichon (Mediterranean Waves), although neither station mentioned the other one on air.

The station, which started transmissions from the MV Kajur in October 1995,  only broadcast continuous music interspersed with the occasional jingle.

Three weeks after broadcasts began from the Kajur Israeli Ministry of Communications officials raided the ship, claiming the  stations were broadcasting from inside Israeli territorial waters, shut both down and confiscated the radio equipment.

The backers of Radio Dan took the Kajur back to sea while they commenced legal proceedings to recover the confiscated broadcasting equipment, but on  23rd November 1995 the MV Kajur ran aground, and was badly damaged making her no longer seaworthy.
