The ship as you put it is non other than the MV Mebo II the former home of Radio NorthSea International (RNI my favourite offshore station hence the user name) the potentially the most powerful radioship that was ever on air in the North Sea pond between the UK & Central Europe during January 1970 & 31 August 1974 which sadly ended its life being blown up by Col Gadaffi in Tripolin as part of a training exercise some years later. I couldn't possibly take it down again as Alec always complains when I do.

No only a few months from September 1970 to January 1971 when it started testing having ousted out the Veronica personel who were "looking after the ship" so to speak. It came back on full time English in February with the new daytime Dutch service commencing 2 weeks later.

Yes it was the most beautiful radio ship ever - and here you have some origiinal RNI - recordings - click and listen to it
Don't get impatient - it takes quite a while until it opens the player after you have clicked on the thread !!

Basically cos the Libyan government had no further use for it. Pity they didn't give it to Ronan as the dear old MiAmigo was getting very long in the tooth by then.

My sleep is also on delay I'm off to bed and we'd best get back on thread or Roger will get annoyed.

She was a beautiful looking ship and one where I think Roger was "trained" on by the legend that is Tony Allan. I cried when she closed down. I was 14 and it was the day before I went back to school after my summer holidays.

Wow, has anyone wrote a book about the History here? I bet Roger has some great stories to tell us all. :wink:
