Radio Nordsee International – RNI – Scheveningen

Except for the period from March to July 1970, Radio Nordsee’s broadcasting ship was located in international waters off the Dutch coast near the seaside town of Scheveningen.

Here are some photos of Scheveningen including the Grand Hotel, where RNI’s directors usually stayed. Here are also pics of Scheveningen pier with its “Belle Amie” disco, often the haunt of pirate radio DJ’s when not working on board… you’ll see here Tony Allan and singers Ferdi & Rob Bolland & Bolland. Also on the pier was “Club Veronica” live shows – here with Canned Heat…

Radio Nordsee International – RNI – Scheveningen Port

The port of Scheveningen was the usual departure point for supplies to the m/v Mebo 2 as well as for visits to the ship by sightseers. The pictures below show m/v Mebo 1 in Scheveningen port in July 1970. This ship was originally intended as the broadcasting ship but was found to be unsuitable and was consequently occasionally used as a tender ship.

There are also pics of RNI vehicules found parked in the port as well as a booking bus for trips to Radios RNI and Veronica. Additionally there is a 1972 snapshot of the official offshore radio ship “De Hoop” used for broadcasting to Dutch fishermen which ceased operating in 1988…
