FRS test on 7600 kHz next Sunday:

Summer has gone and autumn is ruling. Propagation conditions have reached to a satisfactory level.Time to expand some activity. In preparation to full programming, we have planned a test on 7600 kHz/ 39 metres next Sunday October 14th 07:52- 10:00 UTC/ 09:52- 12:00 CEST.

We are understandably curious about reception on 7600 kHz. 


We'd love to hear from you, either by mail [
frs@frsholland.nl] or via POBox 2702, 6049 ZG Herten, the Netherlands. FRS-Holland will take to the air with full programming on Sun October 28th 08:52- 14:30 UTC/ 09:52- 15:30 CET. That day winter time will come into force. In the afternoon there will be an audio stream via Internet starting at 15:52 CET. More news in the upcoming weeks.
