Red Sands Radio A3 Print

A limited edition fine artwork print produced by artist Jerry Pitcher in commemoration of the 50th anniversary (2014) of the start of broadcasting from the Offshore Forts in 1964. Named after the Unicorn symbol of Kent, Radio Invicta came on-air in June 1965 but the programme formula failed, as did it's predecessors Radio K.I.N.G, who made the blunder of saying they broadcast from the Nore Fort, an identical designed Fort off the Isle-of-Sheppey which had been dismantled in 1959! Finally, success came with the middle of the road 'Sweet Music Station' Radio 390. Outlawed by the British Government in 1967 ahead of the Marine Offences etc Broadcasting Act which ruled the Forts within Territorial Waters. That wasn't to be the last radio station on the Fort, in 2007 & 2008 Red Sands Radio re-equipped the Towers and made two seasons broadcasts to the North Kent Coastal

This artwork depicts the WWII Army Forts on Red Sands with the original catwalks, the short WWII mast and Radio 390 150' radio antenna
