Pirate station applies for Suffolk AM licence

Another 10 groups to apply

Radio Caroline may no longer be exclusive to an AM frequency on the Isle of Man.

The legendary pirate has applied for a full-time medium-wave licence to serve Suffolk.

If successful, it will be the first time Radio Caroline has owned and operated a full-time community AM service legally in the UK.

Another ten groups around the UK have applied to Ofcom to run a station using AM - including; Indus Radio, Ark FM in Glasgow and AM-Rock.

The applications come as part of Ofcom's Region 11 process inviting groups to register for a community radio licence anywhere in the UK outside London, but on AM only.
