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.</p> <p>We do this largely because we are a <em>free organization</em> with NO political or religious ties, and because of the <em>free access policies</em> 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.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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 <a href="http://www.nexus.org" target="_blank">NEXUS-IBA</a>.</p> <h3>Why should I donate?</h3> <p>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.</p> <h4>Donate now via PayPal</h4> <p>Individuals and companies can donate funds to support European Gospel Radio and NEXUS-IBA projects.

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.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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 <a href="http://www.nexus.org" target="_blank">NEXUS-IBA</a>.</p> <h3>Why should I donate?</h3> <p>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.</p> <h4>Donate now via PayPal</h4> <p>Individuals and companies can donate funds to support European Gospel Radio and NEXUS-IBA projects.

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.<br /><br /><img src="http://www.nexus.org/images/radio/Shortwavetroops.jpg" border="0" width="150" height="180" style="float: right; border: 0; margin: 10px;" />NEXUS-IBA broadcasts to the Middle East On Shortwave radio and via streaming audio &amp; 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.<br /><br />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 (<a href="http://www.nexus.org/IPAR" target="_blank">IPAR </a>- International Public Access Radio) initiatives.

Africa, the Middle East, Asia, the Pacific, and certain regions in the Americas. This is proved by the fact that the world&#146;s biggest international broadcast organizations continue their activities via Shortwave, and are investing heavily in new studio and transmission facilities. In recent history, The Gulf and the most recent Iraq War demonstrated once again and most impressively how important a telecommunications tool shortwave is in reaching a vast audience using inexpensive but highly powerful modern receivers that can be put in a suitcase or pocket. Shortwave is everywhere. It is the world&#146;s most mobile medium. Ironically, it was the propaganda machine of Nazi Germany that recognized the power of Shortwave and perfected its use in the Second World War. Today, Shortwave is one of the greatest weapons in the fight for morality. Shortwave radio remains one of the key electronic media for reaching the maximum number of potential listeners in Europe.

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”.<br /> <br /> 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. <br /> <br /> 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”.

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 European Gospel Radio, this means you can cover any target in Europe or beyond for the same or less money than it would cost to reach just one local market at home.
