ID and email address at 1710 UTC. Noting some FMing on his signal that distorts the audio (I've heard this before). Very noticeable with a synchronous detector.

SIO 555 on an SDR in northern Germany.
Electronic dance music.

1725 - ID in Dutch and acknowledging listeners.
1729 - Massive signal drop in the space of 60 seconds on my SDR in Germany as we pass sunset at the RX. I'm a bit shocked by how fast this happened.
1734 - I switched to an SDR in Ireland and signal is great, SIO 555.

Is Radio Caroline North a pirate station ? No
Is Radio Caroline North a licenced station ? No!
Is Radio Caroline North an illegal station? No !
Radio Caroline North is a fake station,
pretending to be from the Ross Revenge, a fake radio ship.

I tuned in at 1657 to hear more of this relay. Good signal in northern Germany.
King Shortwave ID and email address at 1703.

Tonight I'm experimenting with the online KiwiSDR receiver at KD4HSO. I believe his rig is in Nebraska.

Actually it's near Kansas City, Kansas.

I didn't read all of the comments/replies but the first 2 or 3 actually seem sound.

Do you know something The Vault has been silent for many days? :-[

Yes, I noticed that too but I thought that their TX is in the Irish Republic.

edit : Merlin was raided this morning, while Paul Watt was not even at home,
and a lot of equipment has disappeared, even his personal computer.

I am so sad to read this.

For what it is worth, I don't see any information on this on the official RMI Twitter and Facebook pages, but that doesn't mean much:

EDIT: Sorry. Here's a comment from yesterday:

:( To be honest, it surprised me that Merlin was not raided sooner by Ofcom.

Predictability is a liability. If they know when you will be on, it makes their job a lot easier.

ID in Dutch at 0933. Ronalisa.

I stepped out of the room for a minute around 0934 and their TX left the air.
0935 - Perhaps they are back on at low power?

There was a good SINPO when I tuned in but lost it a few minutes later.

0854 - John Cougar Melencamp - Authority Song
0856 - Signal completely faded out
0939 - Bruce Springsteen - Badlands. Not sure if this is the same station I heard earlier. Who knows.
0948 - Van Halen - Panama
Multiple snippets of The Clash song "This is Radio Clash" between songs so it's a solid bet I know the ID at this point.  :D
0956 - ID and email address,

Signal is good around Western Europe. ID at 2037 UTC.

Their audio is usually pretty good but today noting some distortion on their bass frequency response, making drum beats sound clipped. I guess they could turn down the bass a little.
