KBC Radio, which broadcasts at night via the Dutch mediumwave transmitter at Trintelhaven on 1395 kHz, has announced that its current website will soon be closed down. It will be replaced by a new site at the new domain of 1395.eu. This URL currently redirects to the website of KBC Import/Export, Mr van Willegen’s main business.
It isn’t clear whether this new website will also incorporate Big L, which is currently on the air during the daytime. Media Network understands that several parties have expressed an interest in hiring airtime on the frequency, though none of these enquiries has led to anything definite. One of these parties is religious airtime broker Pan American Broadcasting, which is apparently being represented by the original station manager of Big L, Ray Anderson. The station is being promoted as ‘The Voice of England’ and the audio stream is linked from the Pan American Broadcasting website, identifying in Winamp as ‘Radio England Big L International RNI Radio London, Swininging [sic] Radio England RNI Radio Northsea’ !! Clearly this station is suffering a serious identity crisis
Some of the advertising literature for The Voice of England claims that the transmitter on 1395 is putting out 50,000 watts and has an effective radiated power of 100,000 watts. In another place, the potential audience is stated as ‘590 million throughout all of Europe’. In fact, the licensed power of this transmitter at its current site is 25 kW, and the actual power used is usually considerably less. It appears that a website for the Voice of England is on the way.
