FRS on air Sunday July 22nd 2018


Similar to recent years, FRS will be on air in the Summer period with evening broadcasts. For this year we’ve  decided to do two broadcasts. 
The first one is scheduled for Sunday July 22nd starting at 16:52 UTC/ 18:52 CEST. Close down will be at 20:50 UTC/ 22:50 CEST. 
Frequencies will be 7700// 48 mb (yet unknown which frequency). So for this time we won’t be on 9300 kHz/ 31 metres but instead 48 metres.
