Dear FRS Friends,
Last Sunday FRS-Holland was heard on 6220 kHz between 09.00- 13.00 UTC.
Conditions were rather unstable compared with the 10th December when we carried out a promotional broadcast. Nonetheless we received numerous mails.
Next Sunday X-Mas Eve Dec. 24th FRS-Holland will repeat the complete broadcast of the previous week on the Internet. Times are the same: between 09.00- 13.00 UTC.
We'd like to thank all listeners for the many e-mails. As far as letters are concerned:
so far we haven't checked our mailbox! But if you have written in: thanks a lot !
All mails will be handled as soon as possible (over the X-Mas Season).
If you would like to give it a try listening to FRS in good quality next Sunday, then check this: for those using Win Amp use http://bereik.net:8500/listen.pls.
Windows Media Player users should surf to http://bereik.net:8500.
Next early Sunday morning FRS will be broadcasting a 60 min. show hoping to reach North America. We could be on 48 metres but perhaps also on 41 metres around 7490 kHz. Test will start at approx. 05.00 UTC.
All the best, have a great weekend!
73s, Peter V. on behalf of the FRS Crew

The Laser Hot Hits site is back online via http://www.laserhothits.co.uk/.
Laser can still be heard on Shortwave at weekends on 6275 kHz using relay facilities. Alternatively you can always listen to Laser streaming on the web via the Destiny Media Player. Recently we began a second service called "Laser Hot Hits 2" giving a choice of two different shows via the Destiny Media Player. Both streams are available 24 hours a day and offer good quality audio with some shows in stereo.
Surf along to PirateRadio.Com and download the Destiny Media Player. Once installed, click on Radio then the Station tag on the right. In the list that appears look for Laser Hot Hits 1 and 2 in the Mixed Format folder. Click on a Laser name in the list and we should start streaming to your computer.
At the moment we are testing a third Internet stream which can be listened to using Winamp, Windows Media Player, etc. This has different shows to the other streams and be heard 24 hours a day by clicking the following link or pasting the details into your player : http://laserhh.podzone.net:9000

Some more offshore nostalgia has been posted by Eric C in the usenet group nl.media.radio.zeezenders:
Laser Hot Hits is on 6275 Khz at 1720 Utc with SINPO 23322. Plays some 80th pop music like walk in the park. Signal is now weaker then before stopping the regular transmissions but readable.
Quoting from the website http://www.laserhothits.co.uk/:
October 2006 - We have begun new test transmissions on 6275kHz via a new relay station. These transmissions are taking place at various times on weekdays and weekends, and reception reports would be gratefully received and acknowledged. Also thanks to several other shortwave free radio stations who have been relaying our Destiny media stream from the Internet via their own transmitters - all relays are gratefully accepted at this time.
Please see the announcement below updating our message from 23 August. On this month's update, there is a chance to hear shows which were recently aired on shortwave. We still have some shows that were recorded for shortwave but either only made it on air for a few days or did not get transmitted at all. So please keep checking out our website for more programmes in the next few months. You can hear these shows on the Sounds page.
Alternatively you can always listen to Laser streaming on the web via the Destiny Media Player. This is available 24 hours a day and offers good quality audio with some shows in stereo. Surf along to PirateRadio.Com and download the Destiny Media Player. Once installed, click on Radio then the Station tag on the right. In the list that appears look for Laser Hot Hits in the Mixed Format folder. Click on Laser's name in the list and we should start streaming to your computer.
