“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”
