Shortly after moving to its current base, the station was acquired by Southern Radio plc which, in turn, was acquired by Capital Radio plc in May 1994.Mellow 1557 was sold by Southern Radio plc a few months after it took control of the Invicta Radio Group.Originally, presenters generally had the option of choosing where to present their show from, depending on where they lived.Plus, in the Invicta Sound days, there was some separate programming for East and West Kent, including dedicated Drivetime shows for each half of the county.As a result of this change, the station was renamed Invicta Supergold.This helped as research had shown that listeners never fully got used to the station's name, many still calling it Invicta.
It broadcasts to Kent from studios at John Wilson Business Park in Whitstable.
It retained its own separate identity by the use of split FM/AM jingles and an hourly out-of-news separate pre-recorded weather forecast, read over the respective station's weather jingle.
However, the presenter simply called it "Invicta" elsewhere in the hour.
These new stations mainly adopted a much larger playlist of songs and, despite some major audiences successes (mainly Thanet) they gradually put extra pressure on Invicta's advertising revenue.
Most of the stations also employed many familiar ex-Invicta presenters.
The station was relaunched as Invicta Radio in spring 1985.
