Well that's woken me up! Get those old radios out again.
Why do we want to hear a fading, crackly, station instead of good quality stereo, most of the time, on line?

I don't know but I'll be ready :roll:

on another forum S.D. mentioned 10 KWs though not in a direct context with the Radio Seagull plans.
Sadly - no nightly sky-wave for us Central Europeans :cry:

But in English and actively promoting
"Broadcasting from our ship the ‘Jenni Baynton’ moored in Harlingen Harbour in the Netherlands, Radio Seagull can be heard on 1602 KHz AM in the Netherlands, across the North Sea and along the East Coast of England" and 1395 will be stronger than 1602.

I will still be loyal to BigL but if I can get 1395 in the car, it's great that it will be there!

Seagull is different in content and style to BigL as is Caroline. There is room for them all.

Seagull is in English and targeted at English listeners - I think they want to 'conquer' the East- and South coast of GB
Depends on where the JB will get anchored - I am very curious what feed-back they'll get - I wish them all the best.
If it its going to be a succes maybe BigL can join them for the night slot

Given that, to the best of my knowledge, the 'Birmingham Two', still own the 1395 licence, a Seagull/BigL connection cannot be ruled out, always assuming that they are still involved with RD's BigL.
Always dangerous to assume, though.
We'll soon find out. What fun it is to speculate.

Seagull is aimed at a European audience as is Big L. I would hardly call it a Dutch station. Waddenzee is the Dutch outlet.

I doubt they will "conquer" the east of england with 10kw .. on the tests the signal was fantastic here .. but 19 miles away in Norwich..nothing ! Thats why we didnt go back there and good luck to them though

I think that is the relevant question.

When they were on test in Okt. last year with maximum power of 5 (or was it only 4 ?) KWs reception down here was as good as from Trintelhaven with 15 or maybe 20 KWs
- and mind it was only a makeshift antenna they were using to broadcast from the Jenni Baynton - as mast and ship were both too short.

Apart from power and location, one must remember one other very important factor, directionality. The mast at Trintelhaven is not omnidirectional, it has a null in it's radiation pattern. Without this impediment, it should be possible to propagate significantly more signal into SE UK, with significantly less power.

At any rate, it'll be interesting to see the difference.

Better for something to be coming out over 1395 than silence and if (I don't know, obviously) Seagull is paying something for the hire of the frequency that's got to be good news for Big L too.

No, neither BigL nor the Brummies are involved - they've got the allowance from the Dutch radio authorities
