Biggest load of nonsense I've seen on here is from yet another spineless 'Mr Nobody' and his fatuous and grossly misleading claim that that a powerful MW transmitter can't be licensed on a ship to broadcast.
Well, I'm happy to say it CAN, and in fact we did it years ago with the Communicator. She broadcast with 60 kilowatts output on 1224 AM from WITHIN Dutch Waters, for around 8 years, fully licensed. There were six stations that broadcast from the ship in that time, beginning with Holland FM (i know, I know, but I didn't pick the name!) and finishing with THE BEAT - owned by Clear Channel no less! And the station line up nincluded Veronica HitRadio for about two years, during which time they made around $7 million.
All totally legal, and despite the compliants of another of my clients on the adjacent channel (1215) who even tried to buy the ship for themselves!
All the details are in my book "Radio Adventures of the MV Communicator" along with pictures of the transmitter, the aerial being erected, and all the usual anoraknabilia, available via Amazon or direct from World of Radio: http://tinyurl.com/y9nc7uka. And other choice outlets!
The main point I want to re-iterate is:
Don't believe those morons who say "never" and "Can't be done", and other mis-informed drivel. ANYTHING can be achieved if you know the right people and have the money. If you want a powerful MW transmitter on a ship, licensed (or otherwise!) ask your lawyer to contact me.
