Season's greetings from FRS Holland

 

Dear FRS Friend!

Christmas 2020 casts its shadow forward and we are approaching the end of 2020. An almost (?) surrealistic year. Perspectives for 2021 are hopeful but it will take time and patience before our hopes will be fulfilled, looking at the upcoming start of vaccination.

Special year
For us at FRS-Holland it was a special year too. 2020 marked our 200th official shortwave broadcast back in August and the icing on the cake was the celebration of our 40th Anniversary a few weeks ago. April saw a broadcast of hope right in the middle of the first Covid-19 wave. Last Summer we did an experiment with The FRS Summer Splash: three successive thematic broadcasts.

40th Anniversary broadcast
The November 8th on air 40th anniversary celebration exceeded our expectations. That day we were heard with good signals on - apart from 7700 & 5790 - also on 6195, 6160, 3920. A great success! I remember that Saturday I went to our P.O.Box 2702 mail drop ... it was crammed with letters...snail mail! Together with all e-mails we can only be happy and proud. The comprehensive preparations to make it an interesting, successful and memorable broadcast paid off!

CD, Booklet & QSL
It's my guess it won't surprise you that the months prior to November 8th were fully focused on preparing, organizing etc. There was no time for other 'business'. Nevertheless we felt it was the right moment for a souvenir CD ánd booklet. And: we had to work on creating/producing an unique anniversary QSL as well. It was not until a week after the anniversary broadcast that a start was made to produce the CD, booklet and QSL.

In the meantime the 'ingredients' for the CD have been finished. The main idea for the special QSL card has been worked out and even better: the QSL has already been printed. Those who send a reception report/letter to P.O.Box 2702 will not regret it: the 40th Anniversary QSL is (in my humble opinion) a success and looks splendid. It's a folded A4, printed on heavy quality paper in full colour. Wait and see!

For those who sent an e-mail report, regretting (after reading the above) they didn't go for a hard copy: you can still get your unique QSL by writing to P.O.Box 2702. We have printed a few extra ones but remember: this QSL is only issued for the 40th Anniversary broadcast!  Without exaggeration: the hard copy QSL is by far the best option! The CD & booklet will be finished in the next few days. Final conclusion: a bit of patience is required.

Traditional December broadcast
The FRS Seasonal December broadcast is scheduled for Sunday December 27th, the day after Boxing Day. It's a tradition we won't give up. So expect a nice mix of great music, items & information in a few weeks' time. More info will follow via mail and on our website.

73's, Peter Verbruggen on behalf of the FRS staff

Change of frequencies for WMR & Radio 208

 

This time we have to start with some very sad news.

For a long time (first time was in the spring of 2004 when WMR began broadcasting from Denmark on 5815 and 15810 kHz) WMR – and now also Radio208 – have been allowed to use “out-of-band” frequencies on a non-interference basis by the Danish telecom authorities. Now this has come to an end.

The Danish telecom authorities has now finally decided that Denmark will not comply with the ITU Radio Regulations article 4 which allows the use of out-of-band frequencies. As all Shortwave listeners know, the use of out-of-band frequencies is very widespread – it is the case for all or most of the Shortwave stations in the US, for BBC, in Norway, Armenia, Thailand, The Netherlands, France, Germany, India etc. And many of these stations utilise transmitter power of more than 100,000 Watts while WMR and Radio208 are using only 500 Watts at most.

So WMR and Radio208 are now forced to change frequencies - at a rather short notice. This means that it will no longer be impossible to reach our listeners on Shortwave during evening hours, at night and in the early morning hours due to the crowded 49 meter band.

Today Monday November 30th a license was received from the Danish telecom authorities to use these new frequencies:

5930 kHz – World Music Radio – Bramming – 100W (soon 500W) – daily schedule: 0700-1745 – change from 5840 to 5930 due late December 2020

5970 kHz – Radio208 – Hvidovre – 250W – daily schedule: 0700-1600 – due on air early December 2020

15790 kHz – World Music Radio – Randers – 200W – Saturdays & Sundays 0700-2000 UTC – change from 15805 to 15790 due as of December 12th 2020

No changes for Medium Wave 927 and 1440 kHz

Please help keeping AM radio alive – and WMR and Radio208 on the air

Listeners of World Music Radio (WMR) and Radio208 are kindly invited to send a donation to cover some of the costs involved with running these two, non-commercial radio stations. The running costs includes music royalties (450 euro per month) and electricity costs for the four AM-transmitters. Funds are also needed for setting up the aerial for the 927 kHz transmitter in Hvidovre, Copenhagen.

All amounts are welcome!!
