FRS 'may' repeat broadcast

Last Sunday's FRS broadcast suffered from instable propagation conditions. Some might have enjoyed good reception whereas others' reception was poor.

It is commonly known that SW conditions have been poor. Not only during daytime but also sometimes during evening. Last Sunday we were received in Cyprus and Mexico (not via SDR) while reception in areas where 7700 is almost always satisfactory, was poor. Apart from the final 60 minutes when the first show (Bert van Leer) was repeated; that was between 23:00-23:50 CEST. During that time 7700 was very strong and also 5810 did well.

There might be a repeat next Sunday August 4th or August 11th. At this  moment things are uncertain. But it's worth while to tune in and give it a try! Same time schedule and same freqs being 7700//5810 kHz. Details are still to be read on our site:

Remember there are streams planned for next Thursday, Saturday & Sunday (twice!). FRS'  39th anniversary will be celebrated on Sunday Sept. 1st. Details will follow in the course of August.
