Radio Caroline applies for AM radio licence

Radio Caroline has applied for a full-time medium wave licence to serve Suffolk.

The legendary pirate is currently broadcasting online and via a number of outlets including DAB and Manx Radio’s AM transmitters, but this would be the first time Caroline would own and operate its own full-time community radio AM service, legally in the UK.

The application comes along with 10 other radio groups around the UK who have applied to Ofcom to run a station using AM.

They include Leicestershire Community Talk Radio, AM-Rock in Thanet, Canterbury and Dover & East Kent, Ark FM in Glasgow and Radio Central in Birmingham.

It’s all part of the Ofcom Region 11 application process, which invites any radio group to apply for a community radio licence anywhere in the UK outside London, but on AM only.

Here’s the full list of applicants. Each station’s proposed coverage area in the list below is taken from the application.
