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.
Wow! 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.
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.
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:
