Its always nice to catch caribbean tunes in the headphones and in the morning of October 12th last year I stumbled over 1300kHz where reaggemusic was flowing. Soon after TOH I heard the announcement "This is the Voice of Sint Maarten PJD-2 1300 AM...Philipsburg" . After some months Steven Cyrillien verified my reception :
I can confirm to you that it was our radio station, PJD 2 1300 am (Voice
of St. Maarten). you heard. We became a commercial radio station some 40 years
ago on the 1st of January 1973. This year, we are celebrating our 40th
anniversary and as a result, we have planed a list of several events to be had
in observation. Best regards"
On October 10th 2010 Sint Maarten became a constituent country within the Kingdom of the Nederlands.
It encompasses the southern half of the caribbean island of Saint Martin, while the northern part of the island constitutes the french overseas collectivity of Saint-Martin.
