Free Radio Service Holland - Summer Splash 2023


Dear FRS Friends!

The time has finally come... After a (too...) long break, FRS-Holland will return to the airwaves next July/August.
A combination of circumstances forced us to be inactive for more than 6 months. We do regret this inactivity but:
with new energy we will soon return to the shortwave airwaves.
Good news: all familiar FRS voices will join: Jan, Mike, Bert, Dave & Peter V.

Important: our website will be off line for a while because we switch to a new provider.
That implies we will build a new site starting in July/ August.
At the same time you cannot check our website for the latest details regarding the FRS Summer Splash.
In this mail we will supply the most important information, share it with any radio friend/ colleague!
We hope those who run a blog will share the info with their readers. Thanks in advance!!

FRS Summer Splash

Following last year's successful edition, we hope you will also enjoy the upcoming one.
Our schedule: 3 weeks in a row, a 2 hour broadcast.

Sunday July 23rd  18:59- 21:04 UTC/ 20:59- 23:04 CEST
Sunday July 30th  18:59- 21:04 UTC/ 20:59- 23:04 CEST
Sunday August 6th 18:59- 20:59 UTC/ 20:59- 23:04 CEST

All programmes will be thematic including various radio related items. Don't miss it!


Frequencies will be 6185 kHz & 7700//5800 (or 5790) kHz. Last year we experienced some difficulties with a suitable
5.8 MHz frequency, so it’s hard to give you the exact frequency. But it will be close to (or on) 5800 kHz.


Of course there will be streams as well in the week after the shortwave broadcasts.

Wednesday July 26th/ Friday July 28th  both from 19:59- 22:04 CEST (=18:59- 21:04 BST)
Tuesday August 1st/  Friday August 4th both from 19:59- 22:04 CEST (=18:59- 21:04 BST)
Wednesday August 9th/ Friday August 11th both from 19:59- 22:04 CEST (=18:59- 21:04 BST)
Last year our streams were running on Thursday & Sunday following the shortwave broadcast.
Unfortunately we haven't received conformation about dates/ times. We prefer the same schedule
as last year. If so, then have a look below. Realize: it's not for sure! So listen to the SW shows for
the latest info regarding Laut FM streaming.

Thursday July 27th      16:00- 18:00 UTC/ 18:00- 20:00 CEST
Sunday July 30st        10:00- 12:00 UTC/ 12:00- 14:00 CEST
Thursday August 3rd     16:00- 18:00 UTC/ 18:00- 20:00 CEST
Sunday August 6th       10:00- 12:00 UTC/ 12:00- 14:00 CEST
Thursday August 10th    16:00- 18:00 UTC/ 18:00- 20:00 CEST

New stickers

Last but not least: there are brand new stickers available with our station logo. Printed on quality paper and in full colour.
Of course only available via POBox 2702.

Hopefully we will meet in a few weeks' time on the shortwave bands! Enjoy the 2023 Summer.
