The importance of a regular, consistent Christian schedule

a Christian schedule on ShortwaveHigh power Shortwave radio broadcasts are quite expensive to run, even if the rewarding may be absolutely fantastic. There is no other media today to be blessed with such a wide area, and such a large number of listeners at any one time. Even the Internet cannot beat a small portable Shortwave radio outside of large towns, and especially if you are bringing your message to the poorest regions in the world like Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe.

During almost 20 years of operation on Shortwave, we discovered that good advice is essential for every mission. And we are here to help any of you to reach out in the most effective way.

And this is one important piece of advice, often misunderstood by occasional and small program producers: Airing just one weekly program, alone, on one frequency, for just a few minutes once a week is like trowing money and your own efforts away, but becoming part of a Christian schedule is the most effective way to reach out, if you do not have the resources to air for many hours per day. But... why?

From time to time a Christian Ministry would inquire whether we would be able to provide them with their own frequency on Shortwave, their own time slot, for a certain target area. Of course we can, and we can provide any Christian station or program producer with a detailed plan, transmitter, schedule, coverage maps and frequencies and get them started on a very short time. However, we recommend this solution to those who have at least one full hour of programing to air. If not, will anybody catch you on the air with just a 15 or 30 minute slot, maybe only once a week? The simple answer is: no way!

If you are looking for international exposure for less than 3 hours per week its quite important that you consider placing your message over a station that has a consistent, Christian schedule, and an established listener basis over a long number of hours every week.

a Christian schedule on ShortwaveOf course Shortwave stations do change frequencies every day, and every season, in order to get the best reception conditions in their target areas. This is typical of Shortwave, and different from AM or FM stations that use one single frequency. However, never commit to a transmitter that airs less than a full 3 hour segment, if you are looking for a real audience, not just a signal in the middle of nowhere.

Piggy-backing a Christian programming segment, is not simply an option on Shortwave, but a strategy that you should strongly consider when trying to establish your audience. Come along, then, on a shoulder ride with our strong Christian schedule over European Gospel Radio.

Verse of the day

I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in. Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Matthew, 25. 35
