Hans Knot has today reported on Facebook - "Just received a sad message that this afternoon around 2.25 CET Robin Banks passed away after a long period of illness due to kidney cancer."
Robin was station engineer and sometimes dj on Radio Nordsee International off the coast of Holland also England until it's closedown.
The ship was later used for relaying the programmes of The Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriyah Broadcasting Corporation while its shore-based facilities were being over-hauled. The last Europeans to work on the ship were two Dutch engineers, Joop and Koos, with Prinz Holman and former RNI DJ/engineer Robin Banks. These last two were responsible for the final English language programme to be broadcast when at 05.00 GMT on 14th August 1978 an hour long show was put out, illicitly, celebrating and remembering offshore radio on the anniversary of the Marine Offences Act.
In 1981 both the Mebo II and the Angela (by then renamed El Fateh and Almasira) were sunk when used as targets for Libyan rocket practice - a dramatic end to an action-packed episode in the annals of offshore radio.

Dear FRS Friends,
As a result of a geomagnetic storm, last Sunday's traditional 'late August' broadcast wasn't received very well within our target area.
For that reason we repeat the full broadcast next Sunday September 2nd.
Full information is to be read on our website. Just use the link below! Details about our web streams are included.
Today- Friday August 31st- sees our 'official' 38th birthday. Exactly 38 years ago- August 31st 1980 just before 10 o'clock- FRS signed on on 6250 kHz.
FRS-Holland: 38 years of short wave free radio! Tune in next Sunday, it'll be worth while.....
All the best!
Peter Verbruggen on behalf of the FRS team.
