FRS Holland plans for Sunday program test

Dear FRS Friends,

F R S – H O L L A N D   T E S T I N G
Next Sunday December 8th FRS-Holland will conduct a test broadcast on 7310 kHz/ 41 metres.
The test will last for two hours between 10:00-12:00 UTC/ 11:00- 13:00 CET. We are understandably curious what reception is like in your particular area. Therefore we do hope as many listeners as possible will be tuning our way and send a reception report, either via e-mail or snail mail. Correct reception reports will be verified with our station QSL. You can truly help us by sending in your reception report!

Our next full broadcast will be over the Holiday Season: on Sunday December 29th FRS-Holland will continue a long time tradition, ringing out 2013. It was in the early 1980s that we started with December XMas broadcasts. Only very few times in the past 33 years, FRS was absent in December. In the past years we have seen a  decline in the number of listeners willing to participate in our Seasonal broadcast.
We call on you as a faithful FRS friend and listener to take part this year…

We’d like to invite you- the listener - to participate. Forward your very own personal Season's Greetings to the Free Radio Service Holland and we will make sure it'll be read out during our broadcast. You can dedicate your greetings to friends etc. but you can also make a 'general' New Year’s Greeting.
It can be written or taped (cassette, CD, MD or MP3 file), it’s up to you! Send your message to P.O.Box 2702, 6049 ZG Herten in the Netherlands or do it the ‘quick and easy ‘way by sending an e-mail to  Let’s be honest…compiling a written message only costs  a couple of minutes.
In this way you can add something personal to our December broadcast. So...don't hesitate and take part in the FRS Seasonal Party. No doubt it'll be great fun. Make sure your contribution reaches us in it as soon as possible.
We are looking forward hearing from you !!! Tune in'll be worth while!!! Go and tell your friends...

December 29th FRSH will be on 7600//5800 kHz and 6070 kHz for at least five hours. Programs will be presented by Jan van Dijk doing the German show. Roger Davis, celebrating his first year on the station, will be presenting another classic FRS Golden Show with great (and rare!) 60s/ 70s stuff as well as a feature on offshore radio. Peter Verbruggen will be looking  back to what happened in the past (Day Calendar) playing a mix of 80s/90s/00s records in FRS Magazine. He will also host FRS Goes DXMas with the latest news from the wonderful world of wireless. Last but not least: Paul Graham will be doing an 80s show. Within the programs October mail and Season’s Greetings will be read out. There also is the Phrase that Pays. FRS will most likely commence at  08.00 UTC/ 09.00 CET. Later on this months we will be forwarding more details about the upcoming  festive broadcast.
Good listening next Sunday!
73s, Peter V. (on behalf of the FRS staff)
