What European Gospel Radio can do for your mission?

Missionary Radio via European Gospel RadioTap into a large, International Christian radio audience

Traditional ways of broadcasting your message on local FM or AM radio are quickly becoming ineffective and obsolete.

The reason? Internet and media fragmentation.

However, there are still wide, densely populated and unreachable areas not covered by the Internet, local FM or AM radio and TV especially in the less developed areas in Africa, Asia/Pacific and Europe.

World Radio airtime

European Gospel Radio (EGR) is a premier Christian station and Christian Broadcasting Network outreaching millions of people not only in Europe, but WorldWide. EGR offers Christian broadcasters, particularly independent Christian radio producers, Pastors, Preachers, and Churches from around the world a more effective way of communicating with new, existing, and additional listeners world-wide.

EGR offers Christian Radio Airtime combining several and different media outlets with one package, including Free Streaming on Internet for every program aired on our International (Shortwave) broadcasting service. This enables any Christian radio producer to reach a faithful audience at home (via Internet streaming), as well as in Europe, Africa, Asia/Pacific or in any specific target around the world.

A World Radio network for your Bible radio program

We operate highly directive antennas and high-power, modern transmitters up to 300,000 Watts, beaming several millions of Watts in Effective Radiated Power (ERP) into any desired target, reaching cost effectively any continent or any specific country or region in the world.

EGR can, and will, help you deliver your Christian message to millions of listeners in poor and underdeveloped areas around the world.

Shortwave and AM/Medium Wave airtime available now on EGR

If you only use local media to preach the Gospel and air your sermon only on a local FM, AM or TV channel, you are losing millions listeners worldwide and a faithful audience abroad that you can evangelize outside the coverage of your local station.

European Gospel Radio is part of NEXUS-International Broadcasting Association. From Milan, Italy and Dublin, Ireland, we are operating EGR with a truly non-profit and missionary spirit to help you evangelize any corner in the World.

Contact us today if you wish to learn more and join us, as all Christian broadcasters who trust us and have used our media on a daily basis since 1979.

This is an invitation for truly missionary organizations, not in search of financial rewards from their US audiences.

Join European Gospel Radio today, and spread your Christian message of Salvation worldwide.

A premier Christian network and Global media company: our mission

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 most unreachable corners in the world.

Do you love God or money?

We also believe that getting rich should be the last thing on most Preachers and Pastors' minds. We encourage truly missionary Churches, Pastors and Radio Ministries to join our Christian network, as they will have the greatest impact on our worldwide audience.

If you are primarily trying to raise funds with a radio broadcast to Europe, Africa or Asia, we do strongly discourage you from bringing your program over European Gospel Radio. Results will be disappointing. Our target is not the United States of America (USA). Most of our listeners in Asia and Africa do not have a bank account or credit card, and will not send you any check in the mail. They also live in remote areas, where there is limited or no electricity, no cell-phones, no email or web access. To be frank, Europeans are tight with their money and skeptical of appeals for donations. This is simply the nature of the society.

Therefore, we ask you please NOT to contact us if you are just a Christian fund-raiser or a money-making venture!

Donate to support Cristian Media WorldWide!

If you are not a broadcaster or a program producer and wish to support us, you may donate to European Gospel Radio to allow us to continue to expand our outreach to even more countries in Africa, Asia/Pacific and Europe.

Please check the PayPal link below, and send your donation in US Dollars via Paypal or use you credit or debit card securely (Paypal registration is NOT required).

European Gospel Radio is owned and operated by NEXUS-International Broadcasting Association, a non-profit association of international broadcasters and media producers.

We help Christian preachers, Pastors, Churches, radio stations, podcasters and individual program producers worldwide to broadcast their own programs on Shortwave, AM, Medium Wave radio and on streaming all over the world.

Thank you for your support!

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 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 effective 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

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 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 omnidirectional 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 broadcasts can be set using our high gain and 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.

You may be spending donors' money and resources buying airtime on another station that cannot be heard, because it cannot reach the target, or because the shortwave channel that you are currently using 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 European 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 effectiveness 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 Christian 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.
