FRS on air Sunday August 26th 2018

Following two successive broadcasts on Sunday July 22nd & 29th, FRS-Holland will carry out its traditional late August Summer evening broadcast next Sunday August 26th.  
It will be the inofficial celebration of our 38th anniversary knowing FRS officially started its broadcasting life on Sunday August 31st 1980. In the past years various interesting themes were presented in our August broadcast: Made in Holland, progressive rock from Dutch bands, the 1967 Summer, Music & Radio Stories, music related to the 'Sea' topic, RNI Musical Memories etc. Also this time programmes will be thematic (see schedule below). Also this time we offer varied & interesting themes in the different  shows!
Attention: there may be- depending on SW propagation conditions- a  repeat on Sunday September 2nd. If so, you will be informed by mail (for those who are in our address book) and via this very website. Next Sunday FRS commences transmission at 17:52 UTC/ 19:52 CEST; close down will be  at approx. 21:50 UTC/ 23:50 CEST
We realize that close down is late but we feel this is the best option. Frequencies will be 48 mb (possibly 6275) and of course 7700 as well.
