FRS 7700 & 6275 kHz on air again Sunday September 2

Last Sunday's broadcast was seriously affected by a so called geomagnetic storm, a rare phenomenon occasionally popping up. As a direct result both 6275 & 7700 frequencies were poorly or even not at all being received in large areas on the European continent. Such storm is just bad luck and can happen; it's simply beyond anyone's control!

We have decided to repeat the full August 26th broadcast next Sunday September 2nd. For those who missed it: it is the inofficial celebration of our 38th anniversary (knowing FRS officially started its broadcasting life on Sunday August 31st 1980). In the past years various interesting themes were presented in our August broadcast: Made in Holland, progressive rock from Dutch bands, the 1967 Summer, Music & Radio Stories, music related to the 'Sea' topic, RNI Musical Memories etc. Also this time programmes will be thematic (see schedule below) and FRS wil offer varied & interesting themes in the different shows.     

will be 48 mb (likely 6275) and of course our main frequency 7700 as well.
