Dear FRS Friends,

In the mean time the website article also includes full details about our Internet streams.
These will take place next Sunday, on Wednesday August 1st and August 5th.

All the best!

Peter Verbruggen on behalf of the FRS team.

New broadcast from Key Channel Radio


Dear friends, on the occasion of the most spectacular lunar eclipse of these years, we decided to go on air with a whole new transmission.

So much beautiful music from the world, a nice selection of Oldies USA 60. Then Artem's World Music, John Trudell Memories and much more.

There will be the debut of Mistik (Massi) who after more than twenty years of absence from the microphones has prepared two hours of live with Soul 70 music.

So many reasons to listen, we will be on the roof to admire the red moon, I like to think that our signal through mountains, cities and oceans carrying with us our little message of Brotherhood that through music we try to give and if we are lucky, we will wrap the earth with this positive energy.

I'm already excited ..

Empire Radio to return for its 40th birthday

Chris Cooper on Facebook: "To celebrate the 40th birthday of Empire Radio, the original team has re-united for a special one-off broadcast.

"With programmes presented in our own style, mixing music and comedy, Keith Rogers, Chris Cooper and Albert Hall will be on the air this Sunday, 22 July, from 1000 hours BST, with a repeat from 1800 hours.

"The exact frequency will be determined on the day, but is expected to be around 6265KHz, although it could be anywhere between 6200 and 6325.

"I hope listeners, old and new, will be able to tune in. Sorry it clashes with a broadcast weekend from the Ross Revenge, but we couldn't change our birthday! If all goes well, maybe the programmes will be repeated, later in the year. In that connection, if an internet radio station, out there, is interested in carrying the shows, please get in touch."

Channel 292 shutdown report fake

An email claiming to be from German low-power shortwave station Channel 292 which said the station will have to shutdown for three months from tomorrow (July 13) is a fake.

In the message the email said: "I have to shut down the transmitter for three months beginning 13th July at 0700 UTC. I have no other choice to do this because part of the transmitter needs replaced and I cannot get this part fast it needs to be made from the company."

It was 'signed' by the station owner Rainer Ebling.

But on the WRTH Facebook page  Rainer said: "This is fake. Forget all messages, that don't come from our normal address. Maybe you can spread the truth. You see, the fake mail still uses our old address."

In addition, every year many hobbyists travel on Friday. Everyone is always most cordially welcome at any time!
It’s a nice present for yourself, don’t stay at home but meet a lot of other free radio enthusiasts!
For more information or to let Frans know you will be attending email him at borderhunterradio@hotmail.com

Bogusman eQSL and Delta Radio photo



eQSL received from Bogusman - skip actually short enough to hear for a change.

Delta Radio Int sent some photos. He said the station has been around since the 1970s but has not been heard on shortwave for several years. He said he will produce a QSL for future broadcasts. I believe this is a separate Delta Radio from two other Delta radios on shortwave - one who also calls himself Technical Man and Delta Radio (West Brabant).

Many thanks.

Operator of Radio Caroline Int/Goofy passes away

Very sad news that  Paul, who operated Radio Caroline Int and Radio Goofy from the Czech/German border area has died.

He had cancer and in his last message on the AM Forum in February he said he was seriously ill and the cancer had spread.

Now Sluwe Vos Radio has been informed that he passed away on April 26, 2018.

http://www.am-forum.nl/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=26560

He was frequently heard on 48 metres with programmes of music and jingles and also a regular in Iann's pirate chat. He always thanked me for logging his station.

He was devoted to his dog Goofy. His blog- https://carolineteam.jimdo.com - featured not only his free radio logs but also photos from his travels and many photos of Goofy!

Condolences can be left on the AM Forum site (link above).

Thanks for the shows. May you rest in peace, Paul.

eQSL from Greek pirate Zeppelin Radio


My tentative reception of Zeppelin Radio on Monday has been rewarded with an eQSL from the station. In an email the operator said he uses a homebrew 110W transmitter with 47m longwire antenna. Although Greek pirates are regularly heard mixing with the Dutch at the top of medium wave, not so many are heard on shortwave.

This is only my third shortwave Greek pirate - the others were Odyssey Radio and Spider Radio, around 10 years ago. Many thanks for this eQSL.

It has been an incredibly quiet Sunday on 48 metres as operators don't bother switching on due to on-going bad propagation. If you haven't seen it, Terry's blog explains what's going on: http://terrysradioblog.blogspot.co.uk/ 

Let's hope conditions improve. A lot of the Dutch seem to concentrating on the top end of medium wave. Last night was busy on MW and I was getting many good signals - even on a small portable in the west of England.
