FRS-Holland will again take to the airwaves over the X-Mas Holiday Season. December 27th FRS-Holland will be heard with a 5 hour broadcast starting at 07.52 UTC. Close down is at 13.00 UTC. Opposite to earlier reports FRS-Holland can be heard on 7685//5800 kHz. At 13.00 UTC all pxs will be repaeted on 7685//9300 kHz up till 18.08 UTC. The 9300 transmitter which replaces 5800 will be on air at approx. 13.20 UTC enabling our engineer to necessarily adjust the low-powered transmitter. Due to an Arab station using 7600 kHz in the afternoon, we have decided to use 7685 all day. During our October tests 7675 proved to be as good as 7600. If you have a blog or news site on the internet, please spread the details about our upcoming broadcast !
Pxs will be presented by Jan van Dijk doing the German show. Dave Scott will be playing classic rock and has a few interesting radio related items. Hopefully Paul Graham will be hosting another classic FRS Golden Show playing great 60s/ 70s stuff as well as a feature on a landbased pirate radio station from years gone by. Peter Verbruggen will look back to what happened in the past on December 27th (Day Calendar) en plays a mix of 80s/90s/00s records in FRS Magazine. He will also host a 45 min.
FRS Goes DX edition with the latest news from the wonderful world of wireless .
Mike Anderson's DX Welle will feature a mix of DX News and music. During the pxs we will read out November mail and New Year's Greetings. There also is the Phrase that Pays'. Pxs will most likely commence at 07.52 UTC/ 08.52 CET.
From all of us at FRS-Holland a very Merry XMas & a healthy, prosperous 2010. FRS will be back in 2010 celebrating 30 years of SW transmissions.
