The West and North Kent Radio (WNKR) story

Gary Drew writes: "A very interesting story of how WNKR used to broadcast on shortwave between the years between 1987 and 1994. Slightly edited for some language issues but great fun.

Great stuff .... interesting to hear about WNKR's early days.

Andy Walker was on the air recently on Crazy Wave Radio.

I just read a diary entry penned by my 17 year old self on April 27 1980. Apparently I was tuning through the wave bands just before 10pm and came across a test broadcast by North Kent Radio. This was from London N13. There must have been an invitation to send a reception report as that's what I did, but I note later in the diary that I never got a reply. It's not too late you know!
