RNI returned as an RSL station in August 1999. From August 3rd till August 30th 1999, the station broadcast from the LV-18 (the former Trinity House lightship No. 18) which was nicknamed the "Mebo III". The ship had been towed to a postion off Holland-on-Sea. The broadcasts were taking place on mediumwave 190 metres (1575 kHz). Some former offshore jocks and technicians participated in the venture (Paul Graham, Paul MacLaren, Alan West, Norman Barrington, Dick Palmer, Dennis Jason, Bob Noakes, Kevin Turner, Bob LeRoi, Ray Anderson, Dave Rodgers, Dave West and Phil Mitchell). Together with Graham Vine, Chris Baird, Clive Boutell, Mike Read and Colin Lamb they were reliving the year 1970.

"The reason for true ship based, and of course fort based, offshore radio has always been that it is free of governmental control and interference." (Chris Edwards in Offshore Echo's Magazine Issue 98)

"Als de autoriteiten tegen iets zijn begint het bij mij te kriebelen." (Gerard van Dam, Radio Day 2012)

"I can't understand the Government's attitude over the pirates. Why don't they make the BBC illegal as well - it doesn't give the public the service it wants, otherwise the pirates wouldn't be here to fill the gap. The Government makes me sick. This is becoming a Police State. They should leave the pirates alone. At least they've had a go, which is more than the BBC has done..." [George Harrison in an interview with Ray Coleman in Disc (August 6th, 1966).]
