Radio Oranje was a wartime resistance programme from London, as was the case with so many occupied countries. Scheveningen Radio near Haag was an important coast radio communicating with vessels on sea. The development of internet and satellite communications have made coast stations largely obsolete and many countries have stopped HF broadcasts.
