Yes, it was good to hear the return of Laser this year.

It is just a pity the propagation on their two frequencies - 4025 and 6421 - is not more consistent.
You can be listening with a good signal then suddenly it's gone! But then that's shortwave for you!

The Laser 4025 TX is now on 24/7 to hopefully improve reception over the holiday season. Ta for the nice comments. Merry Xmas.

Good to hear Laser back but for me the station of the year must go to WMR. For Jack and his ramblings about long forgotten stations, Andy just for being Andy and Mike for risking his limbs in the cause of free radio!! Boxing Day live should be a good listen if they're sober enough to crank up the transmitters....b
