1992

Article Index

Early 1992 FRS offered a new big size red & blue car sticker.

Slow start of the year & collector's items
Apart from an USA test, it would take no less than four months before the first 1992 broadcast would be made. First we look at the test: March 15th it went out on 6283 with presenters Joop ter Zee, JB and Peter Verbruggen. The actual output was no less than 700W from a transmitter purchased a few weeks earlier. Four USA reports came in. Looking at the comprehensive FRS programme library, only very few original programme tapes are missing. Reasons for missing are the raids or in the case of February 27th 1983 not being returned to the FRS headquarters. There must be at least one example of tapes which were recorded but never went on air. Sticker3 Quality One on SWA proposed two hour relay on Sunday March 15th had to be cancelled because the package with programmes arrived after the weekend. Miscommunication meant that the  next two weekends no further attempts were made to put them on air and in the end it was decided to leave it that way. In some way those programme cassettes have become true ‘collector’s items…

May 17th saw the 3rd broadcast from the aforementioned Belgian site and it would become JB’s final FRS show for the time being. At least: that was what JB announced in his show that day. Later it would appear it was his final one. Peter V. recalls…

“Bobby Speed and I drove already early that Sun morning to Belgium. Arriving at the site, we found out it couldn’t be used because of FM tests. Luckily we could use an alternative one very close to it, still in the direct vicinity of the Belgian-German border. We had to erect the aerial on the roof of a hotel. We tested at 09:25 CET and our monitoring post in Hoogeveen received a fine 6275 kHz signal despite a relatively low hanging aerial some 2 metres above the hotel roof.” 


However: conditions that day were poor and response was very disappointing. Certainly when looking of all the efforts being made for this 6 hour broadcast. It were the best FRS Shows since a long time with the perhaps one of the best ever FRS presenting team consisting of Tony Mitchell, JB, Stefan Kramer, Peter Verbruggen and Joop ter Zee… JB would be doing his final FRS show as he explains in the first of the next two sound clips...
