“FRS-Holland 1980-2020: 40 years on shortwave!

On Sunday November 8th FRS-Holland will celebrate 40 years of shortwave broadcasts. Following intensive preparations FRS is ready to offer an attractive programming that day.
This time we hope to surprise you…so we won’t reveal all details as far as the programme content is concerned. Tune in and find out! Of course our history plays an important part.
A hint: the music we play is closely associated to several aspects of FRS’ past 40 years. Listen and enjoy.
To be honest: this won’t be a typical broadcast for a quick listen…there’s so much interesting to listen to next Sunday….sit down behind your SW receiver & make sure you are part of it.
In order to make listening convenient, next Sunday’s broadcast will be aired on different frequencies ánd different times. In addition there will be a number of streams starting a few days
after the shortwave broadcasts. Take a look at our schedule.
There will be a special Anniversary QSL card. Besides: listeners who send in a letter/ report to P.O.Box 2702 in Herten will receive our FRS 40 years Souvenir booklet containing many interesting articles. Please enclose 5 euro to cover P&P. For an extra 5 euro we offer a FRS 40 years CD. This CD contains programme extracts from past & present, FRS 40th Anniversary jingles (recently produced for next Sunday) and a few surprises.
We are looking forward to have your company next Sunday!

73’s, Peter Verbruggen on behalf of the FRS team”

Dear FRS Friends,

We at FRS were happy with the  response on our 200th official broadcast on Sunday August 30th. We received a fine number of most interesting mails and letters,
some from ‘long ago listeners’ and others from new listeners. And amazing reception in the US/Canada later in the evening! But (and this is even more important!)
also solid reception in Europe, particularly in the mid/later part of the evening.

The comprehensive FRS Summer 2020 Newsletter tells it all.
In the mean time we have responded to all those writing in for the FRS Summer Splash as well as the 200th broadcast August 30th. It was a huge job but
looking at some of the mail we received, it was worth doing.

Most likely early November we hope to celebrate 4 decades of FRS-Holland on short wave. Certainly a milestone!
It’s not only our party but also the listeners’ one! So…we need a little helping hand, your participation.
In all those many years we have often tried to involve listeners in our broadcasts. Many of you will know what I mean.

We’d kindly request to answer & reply to these two questions:

Q1) When did you listen to FRS-Holland for the very first time?

It could be an exact date but if you cannot remember that’s no problem. ‘Summer 1983’, ‘late 1998’ , Spring 2005” …all is ok! And: if you can add a just a few  explanatory words. that would be wonderful.
Like: ‘I first heard FRS-Holland because early 2001 I bought myself a new SW receiver. One of the first times I used it, I came along FRS-Holland.” Or: “I read about FRS in a magazine and was
curious to hear the station.’ ‘I heard it from a fellow DXer.’  There are various good reasons! If you remember please mention it.

Q2) And why are you still listening to FRSH?

Please come up with one or a few arguments. Most likely you have already mentioned (a) reason(s) in a mail/ letter you once sent.

How to respond?
You can respond by e-mail or  spoken word (approx. one minute).
If you have the opportunity to record your message (mp3), that would be wonderful. Otherwise we will read out your message on air!

Please include your name and address. To ease things you can fill in the attached form and return it.
Or alternatively put your answers directly in a mail.

Last but not least: we MUST have your entry latest on October 9th. That gives you more than enough time.
We do not expect long ‘stories’. Keep it short
