Recently I wrote to you that Radio-Gazeta Slovo (radio newspaper “Word”) 828 kHz stopped broadcasting at night. Today Alexander Beryozkin from Saint Petersburg DX Club corrected me: they only reduced broadcasting at night, not stopped. They broadcast 06:00-14:00 UTC and 18:00-22:00 UTC (09:00-17:00 and 21:00-01:00 MSK).

Radio Caroline North January.
Tune in for more nostalgia courtesy of another Radio Caroline North broadcast this weekend 16th-17th January – our first ‘North’ of 2021!
Sadly this broadcast will again be land-based because of the current lockdown situation, but we do hope to be back on our radio ship Ross Revenge at some point this year.
Nevertheless you’ll still hear all the best music from the 60s – early 90s, plus the chance to win some wonderful prizes courtesy of listener Paul King from Blackburn, Lancashire.
Listen in on 648 AM in the South and South-East, on 1368 AM in the North and North-West courtesy of our friends at Manx Radio, the Radio Caroline app and around the world online here (via the Manx AM Radio Player).
We’d love to hear from you during the broadcast via memories@radiocaroline.co.uk and remember, it’s the only email address that gets you straight through to our ‘North’ broadcaster.
