i fergit which 'frequency' it's on - BUT you can still "Listen" to Jupiter with them (IF they still work)

PS - my grandfather (mum's side) gave me his 'Lab' - in his basement and the 'Tubes' there were slightly taller than i was and the Power Supplies - well - they were pretty darn big too . . . had fun buildin' Tesla Coils and 'wreakin' havoc on everyone's TV Sets - UNTIL the FCC came in and informed me - i would have to STOP - there were 'snowflakes' "flutterin' on every TV Set within a couple of miles , , , eh, let's see - where are those Plans again - hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

It's Party-time again at Caroline and you're all invited! The Christmas event is next Sunday 10th December at our usual venue The Riga Music Bar at Westcliff-on-Sea, just outside Southend.

We start at 2 p.m. with presentations from the stage on what's happening at Caroline and our radio ship Ross Revenge – currently undergoing restoration at Tilbury docks.

There'll be plenty of time to browse our merchandise stall for Caroline memorabilia and off-shore radio related items.
