November 30th meeting

It was nice to see so many people coming along to our final meeting for this year. Thank you to everyone who have supported all four meetings this year and we now have a break until next March. Our guest this time included DJs Derek Taylor (Archive Roots Americana Show) Steve Scott and Ray Copeland, we also had representatives from many other radio stations along the south coast.

It was a nice surprise to meet Bill Smith from Angel Radio who started these meetings many years ago and he spoke about how Angel radio, like Caroline, have been expanding onto more DAB multiplexes. Alan Beech spoke about the DAB multiplexes and the application for the AM licence in the Suffolk and Essex area for Radio Caroline as the news broke in the press.

Thanks to Albert and Georgina Hood who bring along the Caroline Merchandise and to Geri for organising the raffle. looking forward to meeting you all at the next meeting in March, until then have a great Christmas and new year.

It was a brilliant night. Thanks to Dave Foster, Rob Ashard, John Ellery, Andrew Austin and Alan Watts for being our guest DJs and thanks to all our visitors some of them making long journeys to join us.

Dave Foster spoke about the Manx Radio broadcasts from the Ross Revenge and Rob Ashard spoke about the new processing equipment that he has installed in the studio.

June  29th meeting

The latest gathering of the Radio Caroline Southampton Support group took place on Wednesday 29th June at the Netley Victoria Club, Netley near Southampton. Thanks to all the Caroline DJs, staff and especially all our supporters that travel long distances to support the event. They heard some of the latest news about the station and our ship the Ross Revenge. Many bought Caroline merchandise from our stand that Albert and Georgina Hood set up and we were very pleased to welcome many DJs and staff from several radio stations broadcasting on the Portsmouth DAB. Thanks to all of you that came along and we look forward to seeing you all again at our next event in mid September.

The original equipment would require a lot more space, but a Raspberry Pi computer and a few more additions could make up a far cheaper system.

Source Chris Martin 06-04-16 Alan, suddenly called out "Will Chris Martin come up"! I though for a moment another Chris Martin was there, perhaps of Coldplay, but no it was me this Chris Martin. I was presented with a new "Insurance Chart" of the Ross Revenge with a special message on it. This was given to me as appreciation to things I do and continue to do for the Ross Revenge Restoration Crew.  May I thank you all for you thought and action proving "Loving Awareness" really exists and I consider you all part of my family!
