Both transmitters are in Latvia, so the medium wave is unlikely to be heard here, but the shortwave is very powerful so should be receivable.

Well, its 2.00pm and Radio Caroline appeared as promised on 9290khz - same feed as both the Internet and Worldspace, so live from the ship.

Umm, who might that be then Martin?!

I know the LVTRC 945Khz transmitter can be heard in Denmark - just, so it does travel reasonably well!
