History

This station began as a land based operation, broadcasting "Middle Eastern" music twenty-four hours a day.

They were constantly raided by the Ministry of Communications officals.

 

1995

After being raided three times in two weeks the station decided to go offshore. Four months later the station was back on air from the MV Kajur.

Three weeks later the Ministry of Communications officals raided the ship, claiming they were broadcasting from inside Israeli territorial waters, and closed the station down.

23rd November. The MV Kajur ran aground, and was badly damaged and is no longer seaworthy.

It was after the ship run aground that it was discovered that the ship housed two stations, Radio Galei Hayam Hatichon and Radio Dan.
