Hello Folks, welcome to a new issue of Dutch Pirate Radio News From Etherpiraten.com. In this issue you will find: Stations off the air, Stations on the air and the Dutch Pirate Radio Site of the week. Enjoy reading!!
STATIONS OFF THE AIR
The illegal radio station Paradijs from Baarn was only on the air for half an hour before the RDR came knocking at the door. Paradijs had to turn in his transmitter and will receive a fine. Normally, Paradijs is on air every Saturday evening with his radio show.
On Tuesday March 20th, the Talentoteam from Slagharen was taken off the air by Mr. Nijland of the RDR. The transmitter was taken but the people behind the station told us that they would be back on the air real soon.
On Saturday March 24th, the people behind Starpoint FM from Hilversum thought they were busted because their transmitter was off the air when they woke up. Had the RDR come by?? Did they take the transmitter off the air?? One of the DJ’s took a look at the transmitter site and found that the transmitter was indeed off air. After some technical adjustments, the transmitter was turned back on and they are back on the air again. So, sometimes, if a station suddenly leaves the airwaves, it doesn’t always mean that they have been busted by the RDR.
STATIONS ON THE AIR
Soon, Oldenzaal wil have a new radio station. Radio Kreeveld [FM] is the station name and they will broadcast on 99.6 FM. They will also broadcast via the World Wide Web. They hope to be on the air by Easter.
Since January 2001, Radio de Zilvermeeuw is on air every Tuesday evening at 19:00h on 94.5 FM.
Last but not least, Laser FM 95.8 are back on the air after a few weekends of technical difficulties. They play the best dance classics and house tunes on your radio and also broadcast via the Internet. You can find a link to their Internet broadcast on their new website www.laserfm.nl. The site is also in English, so take a look.
DUTCH PIRATE RADIO SITE OF THE WEEK
Again this week not a real website but a photo page. Here you will find a lot of photo’s of transmitters, antenna towers, studio’s etc. And there are plenty of them. Take a look at: http://www.etherpiraten.com/fotoboek/fotos.htm.
Yes folks, this is the end once again. At the moment, I’m still very busy in my new house and because of all the hassle, we are behind schedule. I really hope that we will be done soon. For ourselves but also for your readers. Because of the lack of time, the Dutch Pirate Radio News From Etherpiraten.com remains small, simply because
I don’t have the time at the moment to search the web for some more news. I really
hope you’ll understand and the only thing I can promise you all is that it will get better in the very near future.
As usual, you can send your comments, reactions and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be back next week with a new (and probably another small) issue of Dutch Pirate Radio News From Etherpiraten.com. Have a great week and see you all next Sunday.All the best, Lex van Dijken
