New high power (250 kW) tests

Radio for PeaceOn Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, 2003, we run a four hour special broadcast using 250 kW of power, featuring programs in English, German and Italian. This was a o­ne time, occasional broadcasts with a special Christmas program produced by o­ne of NEXUS-IBA's members in Europe.

The latest portion of the 250 kW night-time broadcast was heard with excellent conditions by listeners overseas in the USA and Canada. Here are some excerpts from emails received in real-time during the broadcast:

EGR heard loud and clear in Australia

We are receiving reports from the Pacific that our Friday evening broadcasts using 100 kW are reaching Australia and New Zealand with a "loud and clear" signal.

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.

Our audience on Shortwave

Even the largest broadcasters on Shortwave cannot accurately estimate the size of their audience to any program they air on Shortwave, to the same or even a comparable level of accuracy that any FM or TV station can do for any particular market. Since 1979, we have been working with several Radio Ministries, the BBC, the United Nations, UNESCO and other major International broadcasters and media, and with those involved in audience and International media research. Only the largest organizations like the BBC or Voice of America can afford the cost of conducting some sort of audience research on Shortwave. Some empirical data exists on the number of Shortwave receivers in each country, that lead to a potential audience of more than 10 millions in Europe and about the same in in N Africa and the Middle East, i.e. regions that we are able to cover with a Grade-A signal using our newly started 100 kW service. Most of the time we know that people are listening, because we monitor continuously our signal quality in several countries, and because listeners write us and/or to our members or program producers.

European Gospel Radio: Our target areas

Reception reports and our monitors indicates that IRRS-Shortwave signal with our 20 kW stream may be received with a clear signal all over Europe. Fringe reception depending on propagation conditions at the time of broadcasts allow reception outside our primary target area, i.e. in N America, Africa, and the Pacific.

Higher power broadcasts starting at 25, 50, 100, 250, 500 and 1,000 kW will reach areas well outside our primary target (Europe). If you are interested in other areas than Europe, please contact us for other options and rates, specifying your preferred target area. In most cases we may custom plan a broadcast to any region of the world and present you with a proposal in just a few hours.
