RSL (Restricted Service License) Transmissions [United Kingdom]

Under British legislation it is possible to obtain a license to broadcast for special occasions with limited transmitting power (1 Watt!) for a maximum period of 28 days, either on Medium Wave or on VHF (FM). During the past few years there have been various RSL-ventures, the bestknown of which are those by Radio Caroline and Radio London. I must still have recordings of older ones, and when I dig these out, I will include them here. In August 1999 there also were RSL-transmissions by Swinging Radio England (1566 kHz), which I did not receive, due to a Dutch pirate-station on the same frequency)...
