News about European Gospel Radio
How does shortwave work?
Standard 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 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.

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.

 
Missionary Evangelism in the Far East

Far East broadasting via European Gospel Radio high power broadcastsWow! What a response from our recently started broadcasts to the Far East! 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.

 
New high power broadasts to Middle East, Asia and Pacific

We've just recently started broadcasting using 150 and 300 kW to Middle East, Asia and the Pacific.

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.
