Radio Waddenzee going offshore
Dutch regional commercial station Radio Waddenzee is planning to become a
real offshore broadcaster for three days on 1-3 May 2008. The station will
be anchoring its lightship Jenni Baynton close to the uninhabited island of
Griend, off the coast between Harlingen and Terschelling. The anchorage is
on the route of a boat race that takes place on 2 May, and the event will be
covered live on Radio Waddenzee.
The station broadcasts on 1602 kHz with a power of 1 kW, and has two
transmitters – one on the ship, and the other on land. For the special
three-day broadcast, the shipborne transmitter will be used.
