This broadcast is the unofficial celebration of our 41st Anniversary.

, FRS-holland will have a one hour relay by courtesy of Texas Radio Shortwave. The show will be aired on 5800 kHz via a 100 kW transmitter from Radio Miami Int. (WRMI).. Texas Radio Shortwave selected a number of low power Euro SW stations that broadcast interesting programs. Aim is to provide interesting content for North American listeners who may not know these stations exist and for DXers who can’t hear these stations under current solar conditions. A first series went out last July & August and a 2nd series will start early Sept and run until late November. On Sunday November 21st at )1:00 UTCa second FRS-Holland relay will take place. On that occasion FRS will be put out woth 100 kW on 5950 kHz. 
Although WRMI's 5800 signal is primarily aimed at North America, reception in Europe is possible. So, if you are a night owl you know what to do!
