This former survey ship spent three years off the Thames estuary where it was blockaded, spied on, taken over and arrested, suffered countless storms but won millions of listeners. After being fitted with a more robust aerial in Holland, it was licensed for a 50 kW transmitter. She then had a further 8 years as the home of several radio stations in the Netherlands before a final tour of duty in the Orkney islands in Scotland as The Superstation.
Reprint of Sir Hans Knot's excellent book, telling about the successful times of Laser 558.
The best radio book of 2009, Hans' book has been out of print for many years - soon you can buy a copy for yourself when we reprint it later in 2017.
