New A04 summer schedule as of March 28, 2004

With the change to summer or daylight saving time, all Shortwave stations around the world adjust their schedules by changing frequencies and times of operation. IRRS Shortwave and European Gospel Radio have a policy to try keeping both times and frequency consistent with local time in Central Europe. In this way, listeners are less confused as they are not required to re-tune their receivers, and they may find our station easier on their dial.

New broadcasts to West Africa

West AfricaOn Sunday Feb. 8, 2004, IRRS starts new test broadcasts to North (Mediterranean) and West Africa using a powerful 100 kW beam. These broadcasts are intended to cover a large segment of listeners who live in the large populated areas of North Africa over the Mediterreanean sea, and especially those living in tents and refugee camps in the desert.

Among them over 170,000 people are living in four refugee camps in the harsh southern Algerian desert in West Africa. For the last twenty years these refugees have been forced to live in tents, and Shortwave radio is just about the o­nly communication media able to reach them.

Broadcasts to this area are part of a co-operation project involving several Italian organizations and Regione Emilia Romagna. The goal of the project is to re-enforce communication with the Sarahawi people that to this day use Shortwave radio as o­ne of the most valuable communication media to the outside world.
 

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.
