Dear FRS Friends,

May 2010 broadcast
Since our February 28th broadcast, FRS has been silent. However: we feel that in this very special year, it's important to keep
in touch with our listening audience.
May 30th- on the 5th Sunday- FRS will take to the air from 07.52- 12.45 UTC (6400) and 13.52-18.45 UTC (7600).
The morning/ early afternoon shows will be repeated as from 13.52 UTC onwards. Right now there is still an option to use a 2nd frequency
in parallel, we will inform you about that at a later stage. Expect the usual mix of music & information.

2010: 30 Years of FRS-Holland on Short Wave
In the mean time FRS is preparing the 30th anniversary which will take placed in October 2010. Five years ago, FRS would have been
celebrating its 25th birthday but that celebration had to be cancelled due to personal circumstances. Sad but true. This year things are looking
different and we feel it's time to do a big on air celebration. And that will certainly happen!
But: we feel that an on air celebration would be incomplete without our listeners' input! Therefore we explicitly invite you as FRSH listener to participate:

"2010 will be a very special year for all at FRSH: 30 years on the air! We will be celebrating this later in 2010. We invite our listening audience to participate in the celebrations
later this year. We'd like to receive your personal FRS memories. Put them on a sheet of paper or send them by mail and most wanted: record your personal message
and send an mp3 audio file. All listener's contributions will be collected and together it will be our anthology of 30 years of SW broadcasts. When did you hear us for the first time, what was your favourite show, when did you get your first QSL, how much did you listen to FRS, any special on air moments you remember? All this info could be part of your personal FRS contribution. For any serious contribution, we have a nice surprise and that is a promise!"

Important: as we have to do a lot of preparations for that very special broadcast, we urge to send your contribution as soon as possible!
or POBox 2702, 6049 ZG Herten, the Netherlands.

If you have any questions/ remarks, feel free to contact us!!

73s, Peter Verbruggen (on behalf of the FRS Team)

Junkbox it was yes! Sign on 7.43 and sign off 8.11 on 6310. Excellent reception over here and also replied with a eQSL and letter in one hour. 300 watts and a homemade transmitter. The operator is hoping also to come on live sometimes in the future.
