Be a little cautious about the 1W EIRP of this restricted service licensed MW station. While the Radio Authority issues 1 W EIRP licences, (and 10 -25W on FM) the practical implementation frequently results in the ERP being exceeded. During last summer, a station with a 28 day licence operated their 1W EIPR from a ship also located on the East Coast of the UK. A friend of mine was invited on a tour of the ship and was amused to see that the 1W EIRP was being generated by 2 x 813 Valves and a big T antenna.
Perhaps they employed a loading coil using several hundred metres of coax?
