Radio Caroline - closure of satellite service and start of a new station

After much thought and negotiation we regret that we have decided to end  our satellite broadcasts on 30th September 2013.

For a long time there have been reception problems that sadly cannot be remedied and this has led to a further decline in our audience on this platform, with those who listen exclusively via satellite falling to a tiny percentage.

Our service provider, whilst not responsible for the reception difficulties, has agreed to release us early from our long-term contract as a goodwill gesture. We have mutually agreed that this course of action is in the best interests of the both of us.

Our first project following closure of the satellite service will be to launch a brand new on-line radio station to be called Caroline Extra. Click the banner below for more details about this new service which will launch before the end of the year. Otherwise we will be pre-occupied preparing and relocating our ship before considering how we may further expand our broadcasting activities.

If this decision affects you directly please contact our advice service. We will do our best to help by suggesting alternative methods you can use to continue listening to Radio Caroline. Please email advice@radiocaroline.co.uk
