Belgische Radio- en Televisieomroep (BRT) was a broadcast service for the Flemish community in Belgium, on the air from 1960 to 1991. It was a predecessor to the current Vlaamse Radio- en Televisieomroeporganisatie. They broadcast three nationwide radio programs as well as regional programs on medium wave (540, 927, 1188, and 1512 kHz) and on FM. They also broadcast an international service on 1512 kHz and on shortwave. It was called BRT Wereldomroep. Their English program was called Brussels Calling.

I joined the BRT International Listeners’ Club so that I could send receive their QSL cards (seen below). One is for their domestic service on 927 kHz and the rest are for their international service on 1512 kHz and 9925 kHz.

Belgisches Rundfunk- und Fernsehzentrum (BRF) is public service broadcaster serving the German speaking community in Belgium. It has two radio channels of its own and a joint channel with Germany’s Deutschlandfunk. It also produces a German language television channel which is broadcast via cable.  Their main office is located in Eupen. You can find them on the web at

When traveling through Belgium in July 1989, we heard their broadcasts on 94.9 MHZ (St. Vith) and 100.5 (Eupen). (NOTE:  Transmitter locations from the 1989 World Radio and TV Handbook – WRTH). They sent a QSL card verifying both of those frequencies for my reception report

I am not sure of the current name of this broadcaster. The name given above is from the QSL card below.  However, I have seen more recent references which state their name is simply Belgische Rundfunk.
