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.

 

Donate now!

Donate to the ministry of European Gospel Radio

Donate now to support our projects in broadcasting and electronic media!

Your donation makes a difference. 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. We do this largely because we are a free organization with NO political or religious ties, and because of the free access policies 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. 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. 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 NEXUS-IBA.

Why should I donate?

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.

Donate now via Credit card on NEXUS-IBA secure web site

You can also send your donation online using Visa or Mastercard via our secure server, by clicking on the icon below:

Please use our secure donation form to donate amounts in Euros. Any amount donated in US Dollars will be converted in Euros at the official rate of exchange when we process your donation.

You can also donate securely to NEXUS-IBA via Paypal.

Donations to NEXUS-IBA are used to support European Gospel Radio broadcasts and pay for transmitter airtime in order to bring the Gospel and Good News to the most remote regions in Africa, Europe, Asia/Pacific.

If I donate financially, where would my donations go?

Currently, the bulk of our financial obligations are going towards providing our technical infrastructure - transmitters airtime and servers bandwidth that we require. 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. NEXUS-IBA broadcasts to the Middle East On Shortwave radio and via streaming audio & 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.). Sometimes 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. 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 (IPAR - International Public Access Radio) initiatives. If you have a particular project in mind, please email us with your suggestion and donation offer. NEXUS-IBA mission is to broadcasts to the world, using all media available to us (i.e. radio, TV, INternet, etc.). If you wish to provide equipment for use by NEXUS-IBA, please contact us before attempting to send it "here" directly -- the nature of our global non-profit operations are such that any equipment and services used to support our projects may be located where they are best needed, i.e. all over the world!

I'd like to talk to someone about supporting your initiatives!

Our missionary outreach

In 1979 we started with a small English speaking FM station in Milan, Italy. Our vision since the early days has been to bring the message of many US and International organizations to those areas that hey were unable to cover by themselves.

In 1988 we began broadcasting on International Shortwave radio to Central and Eastern Europe. At that time The Cold War still divided Europe into two parts along the borders of NATO and Warsaw Pact states.

Most countries such as Eastern Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, the so called Baltic countries, were sealed from the Western world. No paper media, no radio or TV (except in the border regions) was able to spread to the other side of the iron curtain. At that time there was no email, no Facebook, no Google, no Internet and no satellite TV or radio.

Our Shortwave stations can travel long distances and still today, as back in the 1980's we are able to bring a message of Evangelism, as well as news, music and feature programs to those lands that cannot be reached otherwise by the so-called new media.

Early in 1994, we added Internet audio and video streaming, via several relay locations (data-centres) in Europe, Asia and the Americas to better serve our audience via our own Content Delivery Network (CDN). Today we operate several audio and video streams 24 hrs a day, in different languages, on behalf of our associated Ministries and Churches from around the world.

Most recently, we added new digital transmitters up to 300 kW and long distance antennas to reach any region in the world. From Europe our signal is being reported in almost every nation in the world.

Today we also provide managed internet and broadcasting services, consulting and advice to Ministries who want to reach their audience on satellite television, radio and over the internet, not only in Europe, but in any other region in the world.

Our websites at European Gospel Radio and NEXUS-IBA provide plenty of information on how to use our services and bring your own message to the world.

 

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.
