Forshia remembers when she took the Morse code and radio theory exam to get her license; She was very perplexed by one question. She was sure the multiple-choice answers did not contain the right one from which she could choose. Finally, Forsha went to her instructor during the exam and shared it with him.

She was apparently right, and a letter of correction to the Federal Communications Commission accompanied her exam. As the local newspaper reported, “The young Miss passed her test in radio theory and the international Morse code with flying colors.” Forshia even built her own transmitter, a task that took one whole summer. Her father built the receiver; and when they tested them both, Forshia's worked fine, and his began to smoke. They had a good laugh about it, but Forshia was still very proud of herself.

Foshia also remembers going to a ham radio summer party, given for the benefit of all radio operators in Alaska, and asking if she could sign the roster that had been placed high up on a podium. The man she was asking looked down at her, smiled sweetly, and answered: “Honey, that’s for radio operators to sign.” Innocently, she looked up at him (everyone was taller than her, of course) and said, “But I am one.” Through this medium of communication, she would reach as far as Guam and many other places.

Forshia still has her logbook. She received fan mail from all over the world and was featured in the CQ Magazine, one of the most well known magazines for radio operators. When the Lord opened up ministry to Forshia Ross in 1990, never would she have believed that radio would continue to be so important. Only this time the purpose would be to share the Good News of Jesus Christ around the world.

Hidden Treasures radio program on EGR / IRRSForshia's radio program, Hidden Treasures has been aired on several stations in the United States, short wave in Africa and Northern and Southern America and in her own local area. God has given Forshia a unique ability to share the Gospel in practical ways that help people realize that He desires to be everyday real in their lives. She is often interviewed as a guest speaker on syndicated radio stations. Her audio CD, 18 Sound Bites, a collection of some of her best programs, continues to encourage people with God’s love and personal care. It has been her great pleasure to be invited to share the Good News with the European Gospel Radio ministry as well.

Forshia Ross is a licensed and ordained pastor and head of the international ministry Treasurers from the Heart, which started in 1990 on the outskirts of Washington DC. She fulfills the call of ministry to help people through television, radio, books, Bible studies, speaking engagements and her website, TreasuresFromTheHeart.org. Forshia has won two Rhode Island PEG Awards for Best Religious/Spirituality TV Program and has also published two books, No Secondhand Rose and The Wilderness Shall Blossom like the Rose, the first and second of a trilogy about her journey to wholeness. She lives with her husband, Eric, in Glendale, Rhode Island.

What European Gospel Radio can do for your mission? http://www.egradio.org/christian-radio-worldwide/news-about-european-gospel-radio/1144-what-european-gospel-radio-can-do-for-your-mission.html http://www.egradio.org/christian-radio-worldwide/news-about-european-gospel-radio/1144-what-european-gospel-radio-can-do-for-your-mission.html Missionary Radio via European Gospel RadioTraditional ways of broadcasting your message only on local FM or AM radio are quickly becoming ineffective and obsolete.

The reason? Internet and media fragmentation. Still there are wide and unreachable areas not covered by the Internet and local radio and TV, in the less developed areas in Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe.

European Gospel Radio offers Christian broadcasters, particularly independent Christian radio producers, a much more effective way of communicating with new, existing, and additional listeners world-wide, by combining several, different media with one package, reaching listeners in more areas around the world.

EGR can, and will, help you deliver your Christian message to millions of listeners in poor and underdeveloped areas around the world. EGR uses a combination of international radio channels, local AM radio, Internet streaming and satellite TV to reach the most remote regions in the world. If you still use local radio and TV in your own country, you may be losing a large and interested audience that you can evangelize.

We are truly missionary in spirit, as all our Christian broadcasters who trust and have used our media on a daily basis since 1979. This is an invitation for truly missionary organizations to join us, and spread your message worldwide. Please do not contact us if you are just a fund-raiser or money making venture: we strongly believe that International and Christian broadcasting should not be a money making opportunity, but rather an exciting missionary challenge to evangelize the poorest and unreachable corners in the world.

Listening from Japan http://www.egradio.org/testimonies/3708-listening-from-japan.html http://www.egradio.org/testimonies/3708-listening-from-japan.html Shortwave radiosI am a 57 year old Japanese shortwave listener. Last night I heard the program of "Radio Santec" relayed by IRRS on 15190 kHz.

Thank you very much for your program. I started shortwve listening in 1970 when I was a student of junior high school. I was very ative in the hobby when I was a university student, In 1990's OI became inactive in the hobby due to heavy duties in my work. A few year ago I became again very active in the hobby.

Thank you again for your program, and looking forward to your kind reply soon.

Sincerely yours,

Satoshi W.

Mr Satoshi W. from Osaka, Japan listened to our 300 kW shortwave broadcast to India & China, on May 13, 2013, reporting a good reception in Japan (SINPO 35443). Thansk you for tuning in! Despite your location is a bit off-set to our beam to central and SE Asia, Despite the fact that we are not beaming specifically to Japan, it seems that we are reaching Osaka with quite a decent signal as well.

Keep broadcasting on shortwave! http://www.egradio.org/testimonies/3707-keep-broadcasting-on-shortwave.html http://www.egradio.org/testimonies/3707-keep-broadcasting-on-shortwave.html Shortwave radio receiverDear Sir,

I have been a keen shortwave radio listener for over 40 years - I well remember the first broadcast I heard when I was 12 year old boy. Since those early days I have regularly listened to the shortwaves learning a great deal in the process.

I thought I would give you a few personal details so at least you can understand the sort of person that is listening to your broadcasts - I am a 57 year old professional businessman, I travel all over the world on business visiting my company's regional offices in China and India several times a year. During my travels I always take my short wave radio as it allows me to listen to the news from home via the BBC and news from around the rest world on other shortwave services. When I am at home I can continue those "travels" by listening to broadcastsfrom countries such as yours.

Keep broadcasting on shortwave - there is an audience, not everybody wants to use the Internet Over the years my knowledge of the world has improved greatly because of shortwave. I also get to learn about your country - I have visited several countries on holiday as a result of the interest generated from shortwave programmes.

I appreciate you must receive many hundreds of reports a year and I know it must be very difficult to reply to them all! I hope however on this occasion you will be able to find the time to reply as I would like to addyour QSL card to my collection.

Best Regards

Richard K. from England, UK

 

Richard listened to our mainstream frequency to Europe on 9,510 kHz, reporting a strong signal (SINPO 4444) on March 9, 2013. Thank you, Richard, stay tuned and best 73s!

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.

Since the beginning of 2011, we have been broadcasting on a new European AM/Medium Wave frequency of 1368 kHz, covering 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.

New frequencies in parallel with 1368 kHz were added at the beginning of 2015: 846 kHz and 567 kHz. The latter is currently on lower power, to cover local areas only in the North Eastern part of Italy and over the border of neighbour countries. The addition of 846 kHz has been proved very effectively in reaching DXers in Northern Europe, as far as Sweden and Norway during darkness

European Gospel Radio and IRRS broadcasts daily on all of these AM/Medium Wave frequencies between 7PM CET and 01AM CET, and from 06AM until 08AM CET. English is our primary language, although short segments in German, French and Italian are also aired occasionally. All programs are also carried via audio streaming on the main IRRS/EGR stream (see more details on top of our home page)

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.

For more information call us free of charge from the USA or Canada every day from 8AM-10PM Central European Time, 11PM-1PM PST, 2AM-4PM EST

 

 

Our system will call you within a few minutes connecting you to our office in Italy at no charge. If we are unable to connect, please contact us and we will call you or email at a later time.

Stay tuned!

Reach out to Europe, North Africa and Middle East http://www.egradio.org/christian-radio-worldwide/news-about-european-gospel-radio/1100-reach-out-to-europe-north-africa-and-middle-east.html http://www.egradio.org/christian-radio-worldwide/news-about-european-gospel-radio/1100-reach-out-to-europe-north-africa-and-middle-east.html 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.

Donate now! http://www.egradio.org/christian-radio-worldwide/welcome/1007-donate-now.html http://www.egradio.org/christian-radio-worldwide/welcome/1007-donate-now.html Donate to the ministry of European Gospel Radio

Donate now to support our projects in broadcasting and electronic media!

Your donation makes a difference. European Gospel Radio is a project of NEXUS-International Broadcasting Association (NEXUS-IBA), a non-profit association which has elected to do something different in the world of media and free flow of information. Our radio broadcasting Internet services are built on the premise that profits are not the be-all and end-all of broadcasting. We are an all-volunteer cooperative with less than 15 people giving their spare time to keep us alive.

We do this largely because we are a free organization with NO political or religious ties, and because of the free access policies of our operation. Since 1979, when all this began, anyone with anything halfway sensible to say has been able to access our microphones and send their unabridged message worldwide, even if it meant having to run the risk of criticism. In fact, ours is one of the very few experiments in genuinely cultural, religious (non denominational), free-speech and open media access with a truly global outreach since the early beginning.

In addition to Shortwave and AM/Medium Wave, we are also on the Internet. Needless to say, our multimedia platform is very demanding, both in time as well as financially. We carry no advertising on our stations, and currently there is no commercial sponsorship except the active support of our volunteers, our Association members, and our listeners.

We want to continue to provide our services to the global community, to regions and troubled places where others cannot reach an audience, and that's why we're now asking for your support by subscribing to European Gospel Radio and NEXUS-IBA.

Why should I donate?

As a volunteer-based organization, NEXUS-IBA and European Gospel Radio stand most in need of dedicated volunteers who can work on our broadcasting and media related projects. NEXUS-IBA provides the infrastructure for the projects and most all of the administrative effort is currently through unpaid volunteers. Still we need financial assistance i.e. to purchase spare parts for our transmitters, hardware, software, tubes (valves), electricity, rent, bandwidth in order to keep our servers up and our radio transmitters running for the benefit of our international community.

Donate now via PayPal

Individuals and companies can donate funds to support European Gospel Radio and NEXUS-IBA projects. You can contribute via PayPal by clicking on the PayPal icons below:

Donate now in US dollars!

 

 

Donate now in Euros!

 

Amounts will charged directly in Euros or US Dollars or Pounds Sterling with direct debit to your Paypal account, Visa, Mastercard, Amex or Discover cards.

Donate now via Credit card on NEXUS-IBA secure web site

You can also send your donation online using Visa or Mastercard via our secure server, by clicking on the icon below:

Please use our secure donation form to donate amounts in Euros. Any amount donated in US Dollars will be converted in Euros at the official rate of exchange when we process your donation.

If I donate financially, where would my donations go?

Currently, the bulk of our financial obligations are going towards providing our technical infrastructure - transmitters airtime and servers bandwidth that we require. Often we are unable to air some of the programs we are asked to broadcast, because of lack of funds to pay for the electricity and transmitter time.

NEXUS-IBA broadcasts to the Middle East On Shortwave radio and via streaming audio & video we reach daily the most troubled regions of the world, including Palestine, Gaza, Israel, Africa (i.e. Sudan, Darfour, the Congo), and the Middle and Far East (Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, China, India, Pakistan, etc.). Sometime we reach these and other parts of the world with just special or weekly broadcasts if donors are unable to provide funding for daily coverage.

If you have a specific target or project that you wish to directly support, please contact us and we will do our best to satisfy your wishes. We gladly accept support for our Christian radio ministry (European Gospel Radio), as  well as for other cultural and free-speech (IPAR - International Public Access Radio) initiatives. If you have a particular project in mind, please email us with your suggestion and donation offer.

NEXUS-IBA mission is to broadcasts to the world, using all media available to us (i.e. radio, TV, INternet, etc.). If you wish to provide equipment for use by NEXUS-IBA, please contact us before attempting to send it "here" directly -- the nature of our global non-profit operations are such that any equipment and services used to support our projects may be located where they are best needed, i.e. all over the world!

I'd like to talk to someone about supporting your initiatives!

If you would like more information about supporting Europena Gospel Radio and NEXUS-IBA, please email us for more information.  All information will be kept in the strictest confidence.

Thank You!

Our missionary outreach http://www.egradio.org/christian-radio-worldwide/news-about-european-gospel-radio/979-our-missionary-outreach.html http://www.egradio.org/christian-radio-worldwide/news-about-european-gospel-radio/979-our-missionary-outreach.html In 1979 we started with a small English speaking FM station in Milan, Italy. Our vision since the early days has been to bring the message of many US and International organizations to those areas that hey were unable to cover by themselves.

In 1988 we began broadcasting on International Shortwave radio to Central and Eastern Europe. At that time The Cold War still divided Europe into two parts along the borders of NATO and Warsaw Pact states.

Most countries such as Eastern Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, the so called Baltic countries, were sealed from the Western world. No paper media, no radio or TV (except in the border regions) was able to spread to the other side of the iron curtain. At that time there was no email, no Facebook, no Google, no Internet and no satellite TV or radio.

Our Shortwave stations can travel long distances and still today, as back in the 1980's we are able to bring a message of Evangelism, as well as news, music and feature programs to those lands that cannot be reached otherwise by the so-called new media.

Early in 1994, we added Internet audio and video streaming, via several relay locations (data-centres) in Europe, Asia and the Americas to better serve our audience via our own Content Delivery Network (CDN). Today we operate several audio and video streams 24 hrs a day, in different languages, on behalf of our associated Ministries and Churches from around the world.

Most recently, we added new digital transmitters up to 300 kW and long distance antennas to reach any region in the world. From Europe our signal is being reported in almost every nation in the world.

Today we also provide managed internet and broadcasting services, consulting and advice to Ministries who want to reach their audience on satellite television, radio and over the internet, not only in Europe, but in any other region in the world.

Our websites at European Gospel Radio and NEXUS-IBA provide plenty of information on how to use our services and bring your own message to the world.

We now reach Europe, Middle East, India, China, Japan, Indonesia, Philippines, the whole of Asia and the Pacific, including Australia and New Zealand. Reports of clear reception on our world-wide frequency at 300 kW have been also received from Europe and the USA. All this huge area in the world with one high power broadcast!

We want to give you an update on our worldwide radio mission. As we continue to work with churches and religious organizations to bring their Christian message to the most remote areas in the world, we are rewarded by flow of testimonies of listeners from all over the world who tune into our missionary broadcasts.

We are glad to be partner with many US and International missions who bring their messages of Evangelism, Faith and Salvation to the world. Those who believe in our radio mission are truly missionary organizations, that only care to bring the message of Christ to the poorest and most remote lands in the world. Without their financial support we would not be able to reach these locations in the world. Thank you!

Most of the listeners' response is going directly to the program producers who usually respond directly by email or post to listeners' inquires, but as a policy we always forward any correspondence to them, unless the very rare cases in which listeners do not give us permission to do so.

We are quite excited, because with just one single broadcast we cover an extremely large area of the world, including East Africa (i.e. Somalia, Ethiopia), Middle East (Arabian peninsula, Iran, Iraq), Asia (Afghanistan, India, China, Burma/Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines, etc.) and our signal is also heard strong as far away as Japan, until the far end of the beam in Australia and New Zealand.

There are many US and British soldiers in these areas that we can reach also, if we could only alert them all to tune in (maybe through their relatives in the USA and UK).

There is about +3 to +10 hrs time difference from 13 UTC in all these regions and we reach these targets in the late afternoon (in Mid East) to the evening prime time in the more distant countries in Asia and the Pacific, and no later than midnight local time in Australia & NZ.

IRRS and European Gospel Radio reach Middle East, Far East, Asia, China, India, Japan and Australia

In the meantime, listeners' reports have been received from India, Philippines, Indonesia, Japan, China, Australia and the USA. Since propagation works strangely at night, our listeners and monitoring stations report that we do indeed reach well also the areas in central and NE China and Japan that are not on our primary beam.

Special promotion for high power broadcasts http://www.egradio.org/christian-radio-worldwide/news-about-european-gospel-radio/14-special-promotion-for-high-power-broadcasts.html http://www.egradio.org/christian-radio-worldwide/news-about-european-gospel-radio/14-special-promotion-for-high-power-broadcasts.html Radio Antenna at Kelvedon Hatch ( M Kenyon )

 

European Gospel Radio is operating broadcasting services to reach listeners worldwide with powerful shortave transmitters using 150 and 300 kW, via satellite radio & TV, internet radio and video streaming and now also on AM/Mediumwave in Rome and Central Europe.

According to our experience Shortwave radio is still a unique, very low cost and far reaching opportunity to bring a message to the remote lands of China, India, Africa, the Middle East and the former Soviet Union. A radio message on Shortwave radio reaches millions of people far away and over large territories at a fraction of the cost of conventional media, especially when FM, TV or satellite reception is not available. From our unique position in the South-Eastern part of Europe we can reach all the most troubled, conflict and poorest region of the world where Shortwave is just about the only way to receive a message of salvation.

On Shortwave we reach daily Africa, Mid and Far East, Asia, Pacific. Other regions can be specifically targetd using high power broadasts and directional antennas.

On AM/Medium Wave we broadcast from just a few blocks from the Vatican and from the city of Padua, and we reach the city of Rome, the North Eastern part of Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Switzerland and southern Germany every evening and night with English language broadcasts.

With the recently addition of AM/Medium wave and Internet streaming services we can offer competitive bundles to reach Rome and most populated areas of Norther Italy.

We are running a special promotion for Christian stations and program producers. For more information check our website at or email us at: info@egradio.org with promo code THANKS2012

From Summit, New Jersey, USA http://www.egradio.org/testimonies/40-from-new-jersey-usa.html http://www.egradio.org/testimonies/40-from-new-jersey-usa.html
At 1929 hours UTC, a male announcer station identification was heard: “You are listening to a transmission from IRRS,” followed by mention of your postal address. This was followed by the announcement: “Welcome to Outlook,” then a spiritual commentary by James White entitled “Spirituality on the Lord’s Prayer,” based on the book he wrote. I was very impressed with his commentary in relation to the fact that “we have crammed our lives with noise and we never give silence an opportunity.” I could not agree more! One of the ways that I have discovered to counter this effectively is outdoor gardening. When I am amidst the trees, wildlife and sounds of nature, it places me in a mindset where I am totally open to God’s green earth and all its creatures. This allows me to be in harmony with my surroundings and some of the wisdom that comes from this encounter.

At 1934 hours UTC, I received additional spiritual insight in the answer to the question: “Why should we pray?” The answer was: “Because God has chosen to take our prayers into consideration.” Then mention was made of the television program Star Trek, when the male announcer said: “Jesus is the Hero for all time.” He then said: “You are listening to Outlook from United News & Information.” Then followed news about the creation of a Palestinian State; the University of Notre Dame and the U.S. Supreme Court.

At 1940 hours UTC, I heard mention of Proverbs 2 Verse 20: the relationship men have with each other is very important and the need for having spiritual mentors.

Reception conditions at my location this afternoon were fair to good. My SINPO Code rating is 35333/4. Your signal registered at S7 dB on my RL Drake R8A Communications receiver, attached to an end-fed longwire antenna 30 meters in length. Reception was quite favorable, since there was no competing Amateur Radio Operator activity on this frequency in this time slot.

I was delighted to have heard your excellent program today and reception was favorable for me to enjoy its content. If my report is correct in detail, please send me your QSL Card of verification for this transmission, kindly listing the transmitter site and power output. I enclose one US dollar for use as return postage to reply to my request.

Best Regards,

Marconi’s wireless http://www.egradio.org/testimonies/39-marconis-wireless.html http://www.egradio.org/testimonies/39-marconis-wireless.html
French aviator and author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote: The central struggle of men has ever been to understand one another, to join together for the common weal. On another occasion, he expanded on this belief: Transport of the mails, transport of the human voice, transport of flickering pictures – in this century as in others our highest accomplishments still have the single aim of bringing men together.

A parchment on my wall from Radio Vaticana carries similar words: All over the world radio communications promote good will and understanding among people. We live in a global village that is totally dependent upon our ability to live and communicate with each other. It has always been my intention to reach forth through shortwave radio with these ideals in mind, while continuing to search for those places or stations I haven’t yet logged.

My listening experience on the shortwaves has brought me in contact with countless peoples of this diverse planet, from Greenland to Spanish Sahara, Antarctica to Tahiti.

Calling Africa on ShortwaveWith a south directional beam from Europe, our signal reaches extremely well the whole African continent, from Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia on the Mediterranean, East, Central and West Africa all the way down to South Africa, and the greatest part of Southern and Central Europe as well. The program is produced directly in Sudan, aired locally on a few FM stations in larger towns, and then transferred live by satellite to our station.

From Europe we then beam it on Shortwave so that people in the remote areas of Africa can pick up the signal on Shortwave radios. So far. after six months of regular broadcasts, the results have been great, and we all feel blessed of being able to provide some relief to these troubled regions.

There I had a friend who worked as a scientist in a group investigating elementary particles.

Sometimes he took me with him, so I could see how they do experiments. After their experiments the scientists would meet in a cafe shop to discuss their conclusions. I asked them about the reason why some things which were impossible to happen, yet they did happen. For example: how could a particle traverse an energy barrier which it could not pass. On my question on how this could happen, they answered that there is a spiritual world, and God is interacting with the physical universe.]]>

In this passage of Scripture we see two dedications of the baby Jesus. First, the Lord Jesus was circumcised on the 8th day because He was a descendant of Abraham, and all the descendants of Abraham were commanded to be circumcised, including the descendants of Ishmael and of all the sons of Keturah, and of Esau, and all the Arab nations who descend from these children of Abraham through intermarriage. God commanded it to Abraham, and God commanded to keep doing it forever. But if Jesus was born without sin, why does He have to be circumcised? God indicated by this action that in the circumcision of Christ He was already bearing the guilt of all our sins, and therefore He had to be circumcised. Ceremonially those sins had to be cut off. ]]>

Dear friends, December 29, 2004

On Dec 26 the worst Earthquake on Earth in 40 years happened underwater southwest of Aceh Province, Sumatra. Enormous seismic Sea waves (in Japanese called Tsunami) hit the coasts in most countries around the Indian Ocean, causing devastating damages and more than 60000 people at the beaches killed or disappeared into the Sea. This natural catastrophe came without warning and all media covered this tragic event. On Sri Lanka alone, more than 22000 people are reported dead.

Our member, Victor Goonetilleke, living 10 km inland south of Colombo wrote on Dec 27: ” All of us are OK here. Trying hard to organize some emergency communications (Victor is also a very active radio amateur! Ed) and also doing some food distributions and things like that. Since the affected areas are so widespread things are very hard. Everyone within 1000 metres or so of the coast have been badly affected right along the coast from North to South on the eastern side of the island. In some areas as far in as 2-3kms. On the Western side not so bad, about 100 metres from the coast, as the quake was on the Eastern side of the island and the tidal waves came from the East/ S. East. You would have seen the vast destruction. Frightening.. Regards , Victor”.]]>

This sermon discusses the familiar story of the woman taken in adultery and brought before Jesus. She deserved to be stoned to death. This woman was taken in the very act of adultery. If that is so, then where is the man? They let him go. And from this we can see that it was a set-up. This is where all the evidences point to: They had agreed with the man to seduce this woman, and they agreed to let him go, but they would use this woman to trap the Lord Jesus Christ in a dilemma from which He would be condemned, no matter which way He would choose. What was the woman’s name?

In this passage she does not have a name, because God intended her to represent all those who will be saved through the mercy and grace of God. Jesus wrote with His finger on the ground. Then, when they continued asking Him, He lifted up Himself and said to them, “he that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

This is the third sermon on John chapter 9. An unnamed blind beggar is receiving his sight. What was the reason? According to Jesus, He sought out this beggar “in order that the works of God should be made manifest in him”.

Astounding contrasts: The Pharisees, in their carnal mind, excommunicated this formerly blind beggar, because he did not want to deny that Jesus was from God. These graduates from honored seats of learning were corrected by this untrained new disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ.

On the other hand we see what Divine grace can do. It brings a beggar to the feet of the Savior. It gives him a wisdom that exceeds the wisdom of the Pharisees. His logic is impeccable: “One thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see”. ]]>

Expreso un saludo afectuoso y fraterno en mi calidad de un fiel y asiduo oyente a todos los miembros de la gran Institución Radial, y a todos los amigos oyentes, que sin descanso entregan su esfuerzo sacrificado en forma permanente, a sus amigos, esposas e hijos que celebren con regocijo el cumpleaños de Jesús y que sus espíritus reciban con amor este presente.

Mi Profundo anhelo es que esta navidad sea llena de felicidad, dicha amor y esperanza en cada hogar de los amigos de la Emisora y de la gran multitud de amigos oyentes, que estos sentimientos comunes llenen de alegría nuestras vidas.

Que la bendición de nuestro creador, sea abundante y generoso con todos sus seres queridos, que proteja sus acciones y procuren sacrificio en busca de la paz de los amigos.

Que esta bella fiesta renueve el amor en sus corazones y la paz en su espíritu, con el deseo de que esta noche de Paz sea tan solo el comienzo de un año pleno de éxitos son los deseos de su Amigo.

RBCSC broadcast of Dec. 10, 2004 http://www.egradio.org/christian-radio-worldwide/news-about-european-gospel-radio/16-rbcsc-broadcast-of-dec-10-2004.html http://www.egradio.org/christian-radio-worldwide/news-about-european-gospel-radio/16-rbcsc-broadcast-of-dec-10-2004.html Pastor Alfred Chompff sent us a comment of Fridays Dec. 10, 2004 broadcast on 5,775 kHz (2000-2100 UTC):

This is the second sermon on John chapter 9. God uses the healing of this blind man as a type or picture of salvation. The formerly blind man said to the Pharisees, “He opened My Eyes”. God did it 100%. I did not ask for it, and neither did I deserve it. Salvation is entirely by grace. By definition “grace” is a free gift from God, like John 1:13 says, “Which were born (again), not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God”.]]>

Over the years, STREETCATS, worked miracles o­n city streets, getting teens and young adult victims of abuse that other counselors, police and probation officers had given up o­n, off alcohol and other drugs, reconciled with loved o­nes and into productive lives. Through time, patience and tough love, the STREETCATS program worked! And it worked with little personnel or money and with mostly government and police apathy.

Their excellent 30 min radio program called REACHING UP! RADIO may also be heard via streaming audio via the facilities of NEXUS-IBA/IRRS.]]>

His weekly 50 minutes broadacsts are a look into God’s Word, the Bible and are taken from o­ne of their Sunday morning worship services. As you will notice in hearing them over the air, Pastor Chompff usually starts out each sermon with the words, "Please open your Bibles". He does so in order that people would have the opportunity to look into the Bible themselves, and make sure that he is rightly dividing the Word of Truth. Their hope is that you will find this Study to be Spiritually enriching and that it would encourage you to begin reading and studying the Bible more carefully.]]> info@egradio.org (Administrator) News about European Gospel Radio Tue, 06 Jul 2004 14:55:21 +0000 Regular broadcasts to West Africa started on April 2, 2004 http://www.egradio.org/christian-radio-worldwide/news-about-european-gospel-radio/11.html http://www.egradio.org/christian-radio-worldwide/news-about-european-gospel-radio/11.html As recently announced, effective Friday April 2, 2004, IRRS-Shortwave is starting weekly broadcasts using 100 kW beamed to Africa o­n 15,665 kHz Shortwave from 1100-1200 UTC.

These broadcasts are intended to cover a large segment of listeners who live in the large populated areas of North Africa over the Mediterreanean sea, and especially those living in tents and refugee camps in the desert.

Among them over 170,000 people are living in four refugee camps in the harsh southern Algerian desert in West Africa. For the last twenty years these refugees have been forced to live in tents, and Shortwave radio is just about the o­nly communication media able to reach them.

Broadcasts to this area are part of a co-operation project involving several Italian organizations and Regione Emilia Romagna. The goal of the project is to re-enforce communication with the Sarahawi people that to this day use Shortwave radio as o­ne of the most valuable communication media to the outside world.]]>

A listeners in Australia tells us: "Ive just tuned in on 5.775KHz, just on sunrise here in SE Australia, at 19.25 hrs, with a Panasonic DR48. Sounds like a religious man speaking about Gods Grace (Reading from Epistle to the Romans at 1932 hrs), with a 60 metre longwire, pushing about an S7 to 9 with 100% readability. Signal prior to sunrise is excellant 9+30, first time Ive listened to IRRS. Also listening with the 16kbps stream, which is nice."

Another listener writes us : "I just thought I would inform you now of how well your signal was received here in Eastern Australia in Port Macquarie, N.S.W."

These are just some of the messages that we receive, and tells us how European Gospel Radio broadcasts on Shortwave and over the Internet can reach far away countries, and indeed are going far beyond our intended target areas.]]>
