* Also used briefly for the broadcasts of Radio Veronica from the mv Mi Amigo.
 
** In November 1978 the European Broadcasting Union redivided the radio spectrum. As a result Radio Caroline had to move from 962 to 963 kHz to remain on an official channel. The station referred to both as “319 metres”.
