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.

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: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with promo code THANKS2012

 
From Ghana to Iraq: a friendly Christian voice from home

Listening to European Gospel Radio from Africa and Iraq"It is a great joy to have a program on your station. For many years, there has been a very strong urge in me to spread the gospel as far and wide as possible. Being with your organization has helped in meeting that need.

I am a member of Union Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Homer, Georgia. I have been preaching the gospel for fifty years. It has been our privilege to be on several radio and television stations for many years. I seldom do the television programs due to them not being located in our area.

From Summit, New Jersey, USA
Dear Sir, I am pleased to report reception of the Italian Radio Relay Service on 30 May 2009 from 1925 to 1950 hours UTC on a frequency of 7290 kHz in the 41 meter shortwave band.

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,

EJI
