1739 Clearest, cleanest signal for a long time, some atmos noise but for once not enough to detract from the music.

Quite weak at the moment. Barely recognised the voice under the noise.

2026 greets to guys at hfu
2027 inst. music
2030 fading quite badly here now, down to trace on the music

Looking at the WRMI schedule on their website broadcasts on 4980Khz only started at 2300UTC with "Supreme Master TV". 

It is possible they had some unscheduled programming (or the web site is out of date) earlier but the 4980Khz beams in southerly direction (160 degrees according to web site).

I usually get WRMI on 7780Khz  (which beams north-easterly, 44 degrees) but normally not before local nighttime; most days its about 2000 or 2100UTC before I get a readable signal. I have received a broadcast from them targetted to the Caribbean once (on 5010Khz)  but only in the early hours of the morning (0100-0200 UTC).

Not discounting Skipmuck's suggestion (he's much more experienced in this stuff than me) but seems unlikely to me.

Suffering a bit from noise here at the moment (SINPO 34343)
1830 bpm/edm music
1833 next

(Agree with Ray, sounds like Joey)

1934 music heard but unidentifiable under noise (SINPO 23221 direct)

Just about audible with noise.
1856 trace music
1858 male voice - no copy

2045 stronger and clearer now sinpo 33343
2047 human league - Lebanon

1824 got a strong signal now ... Was nothing when I tried earlier.
1824 Still rock & roll to me - Billy Joel

Strong signal into UK.

1820 Everybody loves somebody sometimes.
1822 Dreamlover

Broadcast Announcements / FRS Holland - trying again 8-Sep-19
« on: September 07, 2019, 0915 UTC »
Again slightly short notice but only received in my inbox over night ...

After 'difficult' conditions last week FRS have scheduled a repeat for tomorrow on 5810Khz only.

Hopefully they will have more success, last week I could get anything on either frequency direct or via the 3 webSDR's I tried in the London area. 

At the moment it hardly seems worth turning the radio on - every report on here seems to include the word 'trace', 'weak' and 'noise'. Apart from LHH and Harmony (which are both noise affected) I don't think I have got even a reasonable signal whenever I check the posts from Ray and others.

Anyway here's FRS's announcement ...

Dear FRS Friends,

Next Sunday September 8th FRS will repeat last Sunday's broadcast which suffered from very poor/ unstable propagation conditions.
That means once again a start at 16:52 UTC/ 18:52 CEST. Frequency: only 5810 kHz. It looks like higher freqs like 7700 suffer from
very long skip nulling out reception in large parts of out target area. We hope for better/stronger reception but realize that the current
conditions simply are (very) poor!
Sunday Sept. 8th  16:52- 21:00 UTC 5810 kHz ...FRS' 39th Anniversary featuring Jan, Bert, Dave, Peter & Mike. Tune in!
Have a good weekend,

73s  Peter V. (on behalf of the entire FRS Family).

Borderline audible under noise. Can make out music but not id track.

In case you haven't seen it, received the below in my inbox over night ....

Dear FRS Friends,

A bit late but still in time...next Sunday FRS-Holland hopes to celebrate its 39th anniversary!
All details are to be found on our website:

Programming on 7700//5810 kHz will commence at 16:52 UTC/ 18:52 CEST.
Last July conditions were a bit disappointing, we hope for the better next Sunday evening.
In contrast with previous years, we will pay much attention to our anniversary with lots of
memories, archive recordings and...great music.

Thanks to all of you who wrote in for our July 28th (repeat August 11th) broadcast(s).
All e-mail/ snail mail will be handled within the upcoming weeks.
Hopefully we will meet next Sunday! Your support remains vital to us!!

73s, Peter Verbruggen on behalf of the FRS team.

2054 Mi Amigo jingle > Dynamite - Mud
2059 off

2046 strong clear signal into SE UK. Continuing polka music.

... And off @ 2104

Very strong signal but a little noisy direct  (SINPO 54454)

1817 electronic dance (f vocals)

1829 sudden QSY to 6286
1829 Satisfaction - Benny Benassi

1857 sudden off mid track

non-stop electronic dance / bpm music all the time I was monitoring - no id heard.  Joey seems possible as Ray suggested; it was their type of music.
