FRS History 1990-1999
Sunday March 17th saw the first activities of 1991.
Disappointing 1991 start
FRS had no other choice than using 7290 kHz which was a very clear channel but at the same time an out-of-band frequency. Signal strength was fair and modulation good; all in all it was a fairly satisfactory broadcast with a modest response. Already on April 21st FRS returned with 25W of power. The broadcast lasted just over 3 hours and FRS suffered slight interference from Ozone Radio whose signals emanated from the Irish Republic.
100th regular broadcast
Following the 10th anniversary in October 1990, Sunday May 19th 1991 marked another milestone in FRS’ history: the 100th regular broadcast! A 5 hour broadcast was put out with 120W on 6225 with a line-up consisting of Stefan Kramer, Mark Stafford, Joop ter Zee, Gerd and Peter Verbruggen. The transmitter OP encountered huge problems hanging up the aerial. For Gerd it would be his final International Listener's Show as he was moving out of FRS City. A new job was waiting on him. Certainly a loss because Gerd had been very well substituting his predecessor Chris. The good news however was Gerd would be continuing his FRS goes DX magazine contributions!
