Radio Mayak

Long-time shorwave listeners may remember Radio Mayak shortwave broadcasts, which at one time, were hard to avoid on the bands, as it was broadcasted on a lot of frequencies. Shortwave broadcasts of Radio Mayak are long gone and now the station decided to leave alltogether its longwave and medium wave transmissions. A farewell to Radio Mayak:

Sändning från FRS-Holland söndag 18 november

Following our October 28th broadcast three weeks ago, FRS-Holland will again take to the air next Sunday November 18th. Between 09:00- 10:30 UTC / 10:00- 11:30 CET both 30 min. editions of FRS goes DX will be repeated as well as the FRS Golden Show. The latter suffered from heavy interference from a legal station on 7600 kHz during the October broadcast.

Our next full broadcast will be over the Holiday Season. Either on Sunday December 23rd or on Sunday December 30th FRS-Holland will continue a long time tradition. And that means we invite you- the listener– to participate. Forward your very own personal Season’s Greetings to the
Free Radio Service Holland and we will make sure it’ll be read out during our broadcast. You can dedicate your greetings to friends etc. but you can also make a ‘general’ NY Greeting. It can be written or (preferably!) taped (cassette, CD, MD or MP3 file) and send to P.O.Box 2702, 6049 ZG Herten in the Netherlands.
Of course the easy & quick way is by sending an e-mail to < >. You can add something special to our December broadcast by participating. So….don’t hesitate and take part in the FRS Seasonal Party that day. It’ll be great fun. Make sure your contribution reaches us in time….before December 9th. We are looking forward hearing from you !!! Tune in December…it’ll be worth while!!! Go and tell your friends…

In December FRSH will be on 7600//5800 kHz for at least 5 hours. Pxs will be presented by Jan van Dijk doing the German show. Dave Scott will be playing classic rock and has a few interesting radio related items. we are very happy that Roger Davis (Britain Radio Int.) has joined the FRS ranks. He will be hosting his debut show….it’ll be another classic FRS Golden Show with great (and rare!) 60s/ 70s stuff as well as a feature on a landbased pirate radio station from years gone by. Peter Verbruggen will look back to what happened in the past (Day Calendar) en plays a mix of 80s/90s/00s records in FRS Magazine. He will also host FRS Goes DX with the latest news from the wonderful world of wireless .
During the programmes we will read out October mail and Season’s Greetings. There also is the Phrase that Pays’. FRS will most likely commence at 07.52 UTC/ 08.52 CET . Most likely that day FRS will likely also be heard via the Internet.
Very soon we will inform you about the definitive date: December 23rd or December 30th….

Good listening next Sunday!

73s, Peter V. (on behalf of the FRS staff)
