Ross Revenge

After the Ross Revenge had been rescued from the Goodwin Sands in November 1991 (see Radio Caroline 80’s History) and released from detention by the authorities the vessel was extensively refurbished by volunteers.

The radio ship has been used during that time, from various locations, as the base for a number of Restricted Service Licence broadcasts -

The Ross Revenge was also used by ILR station Breeze AM for an eight hour special broadcast on 27th March 1994 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Radio Caroline’s launch.

More recently the Ross Revenge has been the base for special programmes broadcast on Radio Caroline’s internet delivered service and for the link-up with Manx Radio’s medium wave (AM) service to produce the occasional Radio Caroline North broadcasts.

Thanks to Martin van der Ven for allowing us to use some additional information from the Broadcasting Fleet section of the Offshore Radio Guide  in this Gallery
