We offer you our media, competence and advice for all your broadcasting, media and communication needs.

Shortwave is very cost effective
For all the talk of satellite radio and TV, Shortwave radio remains the most cost-effective electronic mass medium that can span enormous distances instantly and penetrate into every home. It reaches listeners in such remote places in Africa where no other media, including FM, AM or the internet can reach. In addition, Shortwave radio is portable, and is a companion wherever one goes. It is truly the worlds most mobile electronic mass medium. Modern Shortwave receivers are ultra-compact and very easy to use.
EGR bundles: shortwave, streaming and free web site

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.
Marconi’s wireless. Shrouded then as now, in mystery. Signals traveling around the globe, via the reflective power of the ionosphere. Programming in hundreds of tongues beamed to the far corners of the earth twenty-four hours a day, every day of the year. Signals so small they are measured in microvolts. So powerful they have affected the course of history and shaped the minds of men and women ever since Marconi’s marvelous invention.
French aviator and author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote: The central struggle of men has ever been to understand one another, to join together for the common weal. On another occasion, he expanded on this belief: Transport of the mails, transport of the human voice, transport of flickering pictures – in this century as in others our highest accomplishments still have the single aim of bringing men together.
A parchment on my wall from Radio Vaticana carries similar words: All over the world radio communications promote good will and understanding among people. We live in a global village that is totally dependent upon our ability to live and communicate with each other. It has always been my intention to reach forth through shortwave radio with these ideals in mind, while continuing to search for those places or stations I haven’t yet logged.
My listening experience on the shortwaves has brought me in contact with countless peoples of this diverse planet, from Greenland to Spanish Sahara, Antarctica to Tahiti.

"Television is great, and we should be on television." "The Internet is great, and we should definitely be on the Internet. But the rest of the world is not like the United States in terms of their access to this kind of information technology. There are places where there is no substitute for radio." (Art Chimes war time correspondent and producer at the Voice of America commenting a resolution of the US agency to increase its broadcasts to Middle East).
Host Allen Graham presents DX Partyline, a 15-minute program now on European Gospel Radio dedicated to the hobby of Shortwave DXing, or distant listening on radio. The program produced weekly at HCJB, the Voice of the Andes, in Quito, Ecuador, has a strong Christian flavour, reports also on Church and Christianity issues and news. DX Partylines main aim, however, is to help listeners around the world with tips, loggings, news, with special features and reports from contributors worldwide on radio listening, latest communication news, listeners gatherings and much more.
"Globally, radio continues to be an effective medium that can reach into people’s homes, touch hearts, and change lives. HCJB Global strongly believes in that medium, and we are continually doing whatever it takes so that all may hear ... and know ... and grow ... and pass it on."
We are glad that we have been given the opportunity to present DX Partyline weekly to our listeners in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. The program is also relayed via Internet on the WorldDirector streaming network. As usual, your letters, email and comments are welcome and greatly appreciated by our broadcasters.

At the end of last year European Gospel Radio started three daily hours on high power Shortwave (150 kW) beamed to Africa, specifically to the most troubled areas of Sudan and Darfur. These broadcasts, however, can be heard all over the African continent.
With a south directional beam from Europe, our signal reaches extremely well the whole African continent, from Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia on the Mediterranean, East, Central and West Africa all the way down to South Africa, and the greatest part of Southern and Central Europe as well. The program is produced directly in Sudan, aired locally on a few FM stations in larger towns, and then transferred live by satellite to our station.
From Europe we then beam it on Shortwave so that people in the remote areas of Africa can pick up the signal on Shortwave radios. So far. after six months of regular broadcasts, the results have been great, and we all feel blessed of being able to provide some relief to these troubled regions.
High power Shortwave radio broadcasts are quite expensive to run, even if the rewarding may be absolutely fantastic. There is no other media today to be blessed with such a wide area, and such a large number of listeners at any one time. Even the Internet cannot beat a small portable Shortwave radio outside of large towns, and especially if you are bringing your message to the poorest regions in the world like Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe.
During almost 20 years of operation on Shortwave, we discovered that good advice is essential for every mission. And we are here to help any of you to reach out in the most effective way.
As of Nov. 24, 2006, European Gospel Radio completes the upgrade to 150 kW for most of its broadcasts, that can now be heard with a never-so loud signal on all of our target areas, including Europe, Middle East, North Africa, China, and India.
Here is what our listeners say during November and December, 2006:
"Signal was simply blowing, quite a local fm service. By using the Sinpo code, Id rate it 5555"
When the Russian army occupied my country Czechoslovakia, I escaped to Sweden so that I would not have to live under the Communist dictatorship again. There I had a friend who worked as a scientist in a group investigating elementary particles.
Sometimes he took me with him, so I could see how they do experiments. After their experiments the scientists would meet in a cafe shop to discuss their conclusions. I asked them about the reason why some things which were impossible to happen, yet they did happen. For example: how could a particle traverse an energy barrier which it could not pass. On my question on how this could happen, they answered that there is a spiritual world, and God is interacting with the physical universe.
