FRS Holland this Sunday

Dear FRS Friends,

Sunday February 26th 2012
Following our October & December 2011 broadcasts, FRS-Holland will take to the airwaves with its first 2012 activity next - Sunday February 26th.
FRSH will be on 7600//6240 kHz for no less than 6 hours between 07.52- 14.03 UTC/ 08.52- 15.03 CET.  
Pxs will be presented by Jan van Dijk doing the German show, Dave Scott will be playing classic rock . Paul Graham will host another great 60s/70s
FRS Golden Show. Peter Verbruggen will look back to what happened in the past on February 26th (Day Calendar) and plays a mix of mainly 80s/90s/00s
music in FRS Magazine. He will also host a FRS Goes DX show with the latest news from the wonderful world of wireless.
As you will know, The Free Radio Service Holland is more than 'just playing music'. In all shows radio related items are included. This is for the keen free radio
enthusiast vital and most interesting. Find out yourself what we have in store next Sunday.....
Other items include 'the Phrase that Pays' and 'the listener of the month' (December 2011).
Between 14.52- 21.05 UTC/ 15.52- 22.05 CET the complete broadcast will be streamed via internet: <>

Still available: the FRS 30th Anniversary booklet (24 pages crammed with information- 5 euro/ 7 dollars) covering our 1980- 2010 history and the 3 Anniversary broadcasts.
Remember the 3rd and final one of that series took place exactly one year ago.

Last but not least: we would like to appeal on you, the listener, to support FRSH by sending in a correct reception report with some personal comments/ information.
The quality of some reports is very poor which is frustrating and discouraging for a team that works very hard and serious to provide you with 6 hours of Sunday entertainment....
A reception report should (in our eyes) cover a period of 30 minutes and should contain information about your QTH (where do you listen from), receiver, antenna, times of
reception, SINPO codes and last but not least programme information (details about what you heard on air: pop music or jingle  is not ok > Brown Sugar - Rolling Stones or
sonovox jingle FRS-Holland, Just a bit Different  is much better!).  I realize this should sound quite familiar to DX-ers...reality is however - to use our own slogan- 'just a bit different' !
We have quality QSL cards and stickers waiting for you (hard copy) if you write in to our Herten maildrop. Please enclose sufficient return postage: 2 euro/ 3 US dollars.

Remember our [] address will disappear very soon. The only correct email address left will be [].

73s, Peter V. (on behalf of the FRS staff)
