Station Lists - The CSDXC used to post online listings of Czech and Slovak FM stations. But these lists seem to have been taken off-line - the server now returns a "Page Not Found" error. Hence, after some work in Virtual PC, loading up IE 4.0 and Microsoft's East European language kit, here are PDF's of the listings as of June 1998.
You'll need Acrobat Reader 3.0, and they're both about 144 kb in size. On-screen they're not too hot, but they do print fine. If anyone has ArialCE font for Windows, it'd help me.
RDS - I've slightly reworked the UK RDS pages ... please check to see that your local stations are correctly listed. Please me with corrections.
