Hello SWLing Post,
I send you a translation of an announcement of a special german broadcast with tradition:
MEDIA BROADCAST broadcasts NDR radio program worldwide via shortwave on Christmas Eve.
On Christmas Eve sailors all over the world look forward to a special service provided by MEDIA BROADCAST for Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR). Then NDR Info, the information radio of the NDR, as well as the digital radio program NDR Info Spezial broadcast from 20:05 clock the traditional program “Greeting on board”.
With the popular radio format, family and friends send Christmas greetings to crews and passengers on cargo and cruise ships who travel the world’s waterways away from home during the holidays. “Greeting on board” is broadcast since Christmas 1953. The transmission takes place via the shortwave infrastructure of MEDIA BROADCAST.
