Jim at Radio Netherlands, March 1996
6165 khz 4:30 UTC (10:30 Central Standard Time) - Broadcasting from Hilversum in Holland, possibly the worlds friendliest radio station. Don't believe me? Just show up at their door for a fine tour of one of the most modern radio facilities in the world. They are always glad to meet their listeners. One hour of news and commentary you will not hear on network news, broadcast to North America. Sites (and broadcasts) in German, Dutch, Spanish and English. The site also contains useful information about current radios, with plenty of information for the SW newcomer.
5975 khz 4:00 UTC (10:00 pm CST) - A half hour broadcast of world news, with a decidedly British slant. They find American politics very humorous. Listen to their own politics, and learn they have nothing to laugh at us about!
6185 khz 5:00 UTC (11:00 pm CST) Once the web site was German Language only, but they have added an English language version. Broadcasts in German, Spanish & English at various times and places on the radio dial. Check Passport to World Band Radio (above) for the most current schedules.
