Radio World International frontpage article

NEXUS-IBA IRRS and European Gospel Radio on the frontpage of Radio World magazine March 2013 edition

The March 2013 edition of Radio World Int'l magazine, available digitally free of charge, carries an article on their front page dedicated to our international broadcasting mission.

The article features European Gospel Radio and NEXUS-IBA story going back from the late 1970's when we started relaying programs in English on FM radio in Milan, Italy, and then expanded our broadcasts on the Internet, AM/Medium Wave and via shortwave to cover the entire world.

The article also mentions briefly our own CDN technology called WorldDirector, developed internally at NEXUS-IBA to distribute our Christian radio and TV programs over the Internet, via our web farms in North America, Europe and Asia.

The Shortwave antenna displayed in the RWI article is actually a short range log-periodic antenna used only for local broadcast at reduced power up to 100 kW, while the more sophisticated long distance antennas used at 150 and 300 kW are shown on our web site.

 

AM Medium wave broadcasts

Antenna

 

Since the beginning of 2011, we have been broadcasting on a new European AM/Medium Wave frequency of 1368 kHz, covering the city of Rome (population 2.7 million) and the North East of Italy (Venice, Padua, Verona, Vicenza, Bologna and vicinities, population around 3 million) from 7 PM until 2 AM Central European Time every night, and from 6AM until 8AM every day.

All broadcasts can also be heard in the border countries of Slovenia. Croatia, Austria, Switzerland, southern Germany and eastern part of France after 7 PM until 7:30 AM (nighttime) approx Central European Time. Listeners' letters on 1368 kHz have been received also from Spain, Belgium, Denmark and Sweden. The total potential coverage is approximately 143 million people, of whom ca. 68 million speak English as a first or second language. Nighttime coverage is approximately within the darker zone in the coverage map below, including the lighter area close to the transmitter). Daytime coverage is also available for programs in Italian (in the smaller, lighter circle in the coverage map).

Over this new voice in Europe we are repeating some of the programs being broadcasted on European Gospel Radio, IPAR (International Public Access Radio) and IRRS-Shortwave on Shortwave, in addition to music, news and information in English.

Voice of Europe EGR medium wave AM coverage mapAll programs on our AM/Medium Wave network are 95% in English. It's a great opportunity to make us heard in the center of Rome, just a few blocks from the Vatican, and in the large tourist and business areas in the North-Eastern part of Italy and Central/Southern Europe.

Reach out to Europe, North Africa and Middle East

How does shortwave radio work?

Shortwave ionosphere propagationStandard AM and FM stations lose their power as their signals dissipate along the ground over long distances. In shortwave, the opposite is true. The Earth is encased in an invisible covering of gases called the Ionosphere. This acts like a mirror, reflecting shortwave signals back to Earth, thus making it possible to cover vast distances with a single transmitter. This is why shortwave is so efficient and cost-effective. In the case of IRRS-Shortwave, this means you can cover Europe for the same or less money than it would cost to reach just one local market at home.

Christian broadcasting organizations, Church leaders and Pastors placed placed their trust in us to provide a radio link between their programs and our European listener.

We take this trust seriously, and want not only to place the best possible transmission facilities at your disposal, but also to give you the benefit of our experience and knowledge of the Shortwave broadcast medium and the European audience, which goes back nearly a quarter of a century.

Europe, north Africa and Middle East

European Gospel Radio Europe North Africa and Middle East coverageHistorically, Europe has been our main target since we began operating with an omni-directional antenna in 1988. As we began increasing transmitter power to 100, 150 and 300 kW, we started using directional antennas, that are able to target European Gospel Radio to any country or continent in the world. Custom broadcast can be set using our high gain, directional antenna that optimize reception on the desired target.

We strive to provide you with the highest quality broadcasts

On Shortwave, each broadcast can cover a huge territory, such as one or more continents, one or several countries altogether.

It's easy to spend donors' money and resources buying airtime on a station that cannot be heard, because it cannot reach the target, or simply because they may be interfered by other stations. You may also be using old transmitters or bad frequencies, at nominal (not real) transmitter powers that may not be doing a good job.

Transmitter power is not the only thing that counts in reaching our targets. We also use modern, well maintained, digitally controlled, DRM capable transmitters, with excellent modulation and excellent antennas. We also take all necessary care to provide a good frequency to each broadcast. We provide direct international frequency coordination with all world stations, governments and private broadcasters, and are able to select the best time and antenna to offer you the best possible signal on each target.

Give the Europeal Gospel radio team a chance to reach out to the world!

We've often heard stories of fake radio stations, fake (paid) broadcasts, fake listeners reports and fake I’ve Seen The Light” letters sent through networks organized by radio brokers and agencies. On some occasions we have even helped Christian ministries in uncovering those un-ethical and fraudulent schemes.

Europe is just one of our targets. We cover any region in the world by selecting the right transmitter power, the best antenna, a good frequency and the most correct time for your target.

If you are ever in doubt on whether you are really reaching your audience with your own station, at any time you are welcome to ask us to monitor your existing broadcasts. We'll be glad to check and compare the effecttiveness of your broadcast at almost any location in the world, and provide you with a competitive signal in your desired target area.

It goes without saying that we stand ready to answer any specific question or request you may have. We strive to help our Christiam broadcasters in every way possible to make their mission a success, and exploit the potential of saving millions of souls with just one single broadcast, at a very reasonable cost. Please do contact us for any additional information.
