FRS History 1980-1989

1988

Article Index

For the fourth time FRS was more or less directly involved in a raid. Victim was Radio New Wave using a powerful 200W transmitter. It was extra sad to hear that it was purely by coincident that the station was raided. That same morning a number of FM stations, all operating in the same area, were raided and by sheer accident they stumbled across Radio New Wave. Via Mark Stafford a relay was arranged for November, by the way not the Atlanta Radio transmitter. This two 2 hour broadcast was planned for the usual 3rd Sunday but it took more than a week before the cassettes, sent by special messenger, arrived. We were 'lucky' that at least 45 minutes of Mark Stafford went out on the 20th November. Unfortunately it's the hard truth when saying FRS-Holland has gained bad experiences with the British post. So it was November 27th when FRS could be heard with a reasonable signal on 6235. The X-Mas transmission was the very last one for 1988 and no less than 6 hours of news, greetings, music and dedications were put out on 6225. Listeners on the continent heard a nice signal, UK listeners were less lucky with almost no reception at all despite a relatively powerful transmitter of 80W. In the mean time Danny Kay was exactly 5 years on FRS-Holland in December 1988. A good reason to allow him to reminisce the good old days. Did he know FRS-Holland long before het got personally involved?
