Free Radio Service Holland set for Setember 2-3 broadcast

Dear FRS Friends,
FRS Birthday
Yesterday Thursday August 31st it was exactly 37 years ago that FRS-Holland officially started short wave broadcasts to Europe. Last Sunday's broadcast in general gave (very) good results on both frequencies. About 15 minutes before the closing down announcement, the 6280 outlet went faulty and so only 7700 continued. 'Luckily' only 15 minutes on 48 metres had to be missed! By the way: the first show (Dave Scott) was repeated after 'closing down' implying that FRS-Holland continued till approx. 23:50 CEST.FRS Streams

The first stream of a total of three took place yesterday evening- on our birthday- but to be honest: it was not to our liking...  Programs should start at 20:00 CEST but started too late. And: the programs were played in wrong order as well. For instance the station opening was played at a moment other shows had already been streamed. Still we are happy with the LautFM facilities assuming this was an incident!

Hopefully things will go better this weekend...
Below the schedules for Saturday & Sunday... Saturday September 2, 07:00 - 11:00 UTC = 09:00- 13:00 CEST  Sunday September 3 - 14:52- 19 UTC = 16:52- 21:00 CEST

Good news in case you missed (parts of) last Sunday's broadcast!
Next Sunday the complete four hour schedule of last Sunday will be repeated on 48 meters 6284 (most likely!)
Time slots will be similar to last Sunday: 16:52- 21:05 UTC = 18:52- 23:05 CEST

Remember...we have a brand new QSL for that broadcast waiting for you.
Correct reports to FRS-Holland, P.O.Box 2702 in 6049 ZG Herten, The Netherlands.
For all of you: have a good weekend!
Peter Verbruggen (on behalf of the entire FRS staff)
