A couple of weeks before it was reported by Radio Netherlands Media Network a friend of mine Patrick tipped me off that there would be a second pirate radio ship off the British coast. Considering that it had taken years to get Caroline back this was a surprise. Originally known as Laser730 tests would eminate on 729 kHz. The initial tests used ahelium balloon to raise the aerial  and were received far and wide.  At my locale near Gatwick it was stronger than Caroline using the 50kW at 30kW or so. Sadly this failed as their was not a corona near the balloon and it failed. With the project at risk of collapsing broadcast engineers rigged a temporary antenna betwqeen the ships masts. This put out a much weaker signal but this time some engineers raised shows under the jingle call sign KOPA.
