Christmas broadcasts from Mi Amigo


Hello listeners of Radio Mi Amigo International!

This Christmas we’ll present you with 2 extra high power- Special Event broadcasts that will cover a large part of the globe! What better occasion than X-mas to celebrate the fact that in 2016 we became the fastest growing AM/Shortwave station in Europe -and possibly the world.

Our special 2 hour broadcast on December 25th will come from the Armenian 100 kW transmitter -
aimed at the larger European region - including Eastern Europe and large parts of Russia and the Middle East.

In the night of December 26th * a very powerful 125 kW signal from Nauen in Germany will be aimed directly at North America, but with a large overlap in other regions as well.

Our special event show will be presented live from Amsterdam in the Netherlands, with contributions from all involved with Radio Mi Amigo, directly from studio's in Holland, The UK, Germany, Spain and Ecuador. We'll introduce ourselves to hopefully many new listeners, celebrate with the current ones, look back at our 2016 highlights and play some very special music. You'll get updates of our plans for next year and we'll talk DX and Shortwave.

Please note the times and frequencies below and calculate UTC times to your timezone.

Date: 25-12-2016 
Time:  19:00 - 21:00 UTC (20:00 - 22:00 hrs Central European Time)
Frequency: 6145 kHz (49 meter band) - via Armenia (100 kW)

Date: 26-12-2016 
Time:  00:00 - 02:00 UTC (01:00 hrs - 03:00 hrs Central European Time)
Frequency: 6080 kHz (49 meter band) via Nauen, Germany (125 kW)

* Note that in the U.S. the broadcast date is still December 25! 7 - 9 pm [EST], 6- 8 pm [CST] and 4 - 6 pm [PST]. Of course all shows can be heard at the same time on our onlinestreams. All nfos also on our Facebook-page

We look forward to your reception reports. As always, we'll reward you with our colourful printed QSL card and Mi Amigo car stickers.

On behalf of everyone at Radio Mi Amigo International, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Send a Christmas greeting to FRS Holland

On the 26th December 2016 FRS-Holland will be traditionally ringing out another year…

In most cases we are on the final December Sunday, usually after the Xmas weekend. This year Xmas Day December 25th is the final 2016 Sunday.

As the SW bands are usually crowded with stations on Xmas Day, FRS has decided to broadcast a day later on Boxing Day December 26th.

In the past years we have unfortunately seen a  decline in the number of listeners willing to participate in our seasonal broadcast.

We call on you as a faithful FRS friend and listener to participate in our 2016 Xmas Shows.

It’s simple… forward your very own personal Season’s Greetings (Xmas and/or New Year’s greetings) to the Free Radio Service Holland and we will make sure they’ll be read out during the broadcast. You can dedicate your greetings to radio friends, relatives etc. but you can also make a 'general' Xmas/ New Year’s Greeting. It can be written or taped (MP3 file or traditional media), it’s up to you!

Send your message to P.O.Box 2702, 6049 ZG Herten in the Netherlands or do it the ‘quick and easy ‘way by sending a mail to [frs@frsholland.nl].
Easiest way: via http://www.frsholland.nl/contact.html.  

Compiling a written message only costs  a couple of minutes. In this way you can add something personal to our December broadcast during the ‘most wonderful time of the year’.

So...please don't hesitate and take part in the FRS Seasonal Party that day. It'll be great fun.

Make sure your contribution reaches us in time....do it in time.
We are looking forward hearing from you !!!

Tune in December...it’ll be worth while!!!
Go and tell your friends....
