Feliz Navidad
Que el Amor, la Paz y la Esperanza sea la única fuerza que cobije a todos los amigos de la Emisora Radial y a sus diferentes programas, a todos los amigos oyentes, que con la presencia del todopoderoso, esta navidad sea una fiesta en unión familiar y de muchas bendiciones para todos.

Expreso un saludo afectuoso y fraterno en mi calidad de un fiel y asiduo oyente a todos los miembros de la gran Institución Radial, y a todos los amigos oyentes, que sin descanso entregan su esfuerzo sacrificado en forma permanente, a sus amigos, esposas e hijos que celebren con regocijo el cumpleaños de Jesús y que sus espíritus reciban con amor este presente.

Mi Profundo anhelo es que esta navidad sea llena de felicidad, dicha amor y esperanza en cada hogar de los amigos de la Emisora y de la gran multitud de amigos oyentes, que estos sentimientos comunes llenen de alegría nuestras vidas.

Que la bendición de nuestro creador, sea abundante y generoso con todos sus seres queridos, que proteja sus acciones y procuren sacrificio en busca de la paz de los amigos.

Que esta bella fiesta renueve el amor en sus corazones y la paz en su espíritu, con el deseo de que esta noche de Paz sea tan solo el comienzo de un año pleno de éxitos son los deseos de su Amigo.

RBCSC broadcast of Dec. 10, 2004
Pastor Alfred Chompff sent us a comment of Fridays Dec. 10, 2004 broadcast on 5,775 kHz (2000-2100 UTC):

This is the second sermon on John chapter 9. God uses the healing of this blind man as a type or picture of salvation. The formerly blind man said to the Pharisees, “He opened My Eyes”. God did it 100%. I did not ask for it, and neither did I deserve it. Salvation is entirely by grace. By definition “grace” is a free gift from God, like John 1:13 says, “Which were born (again), not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God”.

Streetcats foundation
We are pleased to welcome a new member to the growing family of EGR broadcasters! The Streetcats foundation began airing through European Gospel Radio early in September, using our 100 kW stream o­n 5,775 kHz each Friday night from 2230-2300 Central European Time.
Streetcats Foundation logoSince 1988 STREETCATS FOUNDATION has been working with streetkids, runaways and other at-risk youth o­n the streets of New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Over the years, STREETCATS, worked miracles o­n city streets, getting teens and young adult victims of abuse that other counselors, police and probation officers had given up o­n, off alcohol and other drugs, reconciled with loved o­nes and into productive lives. Through time, patience and tough love, the STREETCATS program worked! And it worked with little personnel or money and with mostly government and police apathy.

Their excellent 30 min radio program called REACHING UP! RADIO may also be heard via streaming audio via the facilities of NEXUS-IBA/IRRS.
 
Reformed Bible Church of Southern California
Pastor Alfred J. Chompff can be heard every Friday from 21:00-22:00 (9-10PM) Central European Time over European Gospel Radio o­n 5,775 kHz (100 kW). Alfred Chompff is Pastor at the Reformed Bible Church of Southern California, in Los Angeles. He was officially ordained o­n Jan 25, 1998, and has been studying the Scriptures for more than 25 years.Pastor Chompff o­n European Gospel RadioPastor Chompff's message is that that we should trust in Christ Jesus now, and urgently, as our Savior. His weekly 50 minutes broadacsts are a look into God’s Word, the Bible and are taken from o­ne of their Sunday morning worship services. As you will notice in hearing them over the air, Pastor Chompff usually starts out each sermon with the words, "Please open your Bibles". He does so in order that people would have the opportunity to look into the Bible themselves, and make sure that he is rightly dividing the Word of Truth. Their hope is that you will find this Study to be Spiritually enriching and that it would encourage you to begin reading and studying the Bible more carefully.

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.

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.
