FRS Holland broadcast & the need for good reception reports

On Sunday March 20th FRS-Holland will hit the SW airwaves. Programmes that day will last all day and start at 08:52 UTC/ 09:52 CEST with no less than 5 hours of music and information.

FRS will offer you a varied offer of  progarmmes and no doubt it will be worth while to tune in our way. A Sunday full of music, information and radio related items....the 'old fashioned' true sound of short wave free radio.

Frequencies will 9300//7700 kHz throughout the day and 6070 kHz in the afternoon. Tune in! Go tell your friends...

May we take this opportunity to tell you that any mail or snail mail is more than welcome. Remember your support (letters, mails, reception reports) is our reward and thus very important. Without support the motivation to produce an FRS Sunday with all the ingredients would be much less. It's the listeners (that's also you!!)   keeping us going...please keep that in mind.

We'd shortly like to focus on the subject of reception reports. In recent months we have been aware that there's a great difference in the quality of reports. Some reports are well written and contain all 'elements' any report should include (including various programme details). Unfortunately we also receive (most likely well well intentioned!) very plain two or three line reports in which some 'elements' are completely missing. We'd like to stress that we very much like to issue our QSL cards but not in case reports are incomplete! In this way we would refer to

It's very simple!  Especially some of the  listeners should be aware that details doesn't mean 'presenter' or 'pop music' but the name of the presenter, show and record/artist.

Thanks for reading this mail...we very much hope to 'meet' you on Sunday March 20th on the short wave bands!!
