The truth as we discovered on that day was that no decision had yet been taken on a site for the mast and that 648 was, in fact, quite some way from being on air. Disappointing news for many I’m sure (myself included).
It would have calmed speculation somewhat had Caroline’s web site, without disclosing any sensitive details said something positive on the lines of:
“We’re currently exploring ways to achieve the best possibly coverage for the 648 service and that presents some technical challenges which need to be overcome. Be patient and you won’t be disappointed!!”
Nevertheless – I’d be surprised if we need to wait until Easter for it to come on. I’m sure that the Caroline Organisation wouldn’t deliberately put things on hold for several months once everything is in place.
Also that anniversary is perhaps a bit too predictable. As someone has already suggested November 5th (which as we know was the date of Caroline’s final broadcast international waters) might just be a far more fitting anniversary date. All we’d need is for Neil Gates to be the first voice we hear on 648 as he was the last one to be heard on 558!
