Hello There from IRRS & EGR,
It’s been a while since our last message. Hope you're well, and still listening to Shortwave. We would like to update you with the latest news about our radio station.
Firstly, are you still interested in International Broadcasting? We were at the latest ASBU/HFCC frequency coordination meeting held in Tunis (Jan 21-25, 2019), where NEXUS-IBA promoted a very interesting round-table discussion on the “Future of Shortwave”.
We gathered different opinions from International broadcasters coming from Asia/Pacific, Africa, Europe and the USA. Unfortunately, there is still no good news about DRM receivers, and some Shortwave stations are struggling to keep alive (some may close soon), due to the high cost of spare parts and ageing transmitters. No worry, IRRS, NEXUS and EGR broadcast from some of the most up-to-date facilities that include new, high-power, energy-efficient Continental transmitters from 100 to 300 kW! We expect a press-release from the HFCC soon; in the meantime, you can read more at http://mv.ie/sw .
Secondly, we would like to announce a series of daily broadcasts to Europe on our mainstream frequency of 7,290 kHz from 19-20 UTC (winter), i.e. 20:00-21:00 CET, featuring the best of IPAR (International Public Access Radio) and EGR (European Gospel Radio) programs. For example, tonight, starting each Monday, Feb. 4, 2019, “The Voice of Love will broadcast a selection of some of the most entertaining spiritual programs in English, designed for our international audience. More information is available here: https://bit.ly/2WE2hmZ .
The Voice of Love will reply directly to all requests of reception reports during these broadcasts (each Monday during February, from 19:00-20:00 UTC on 7,295 kHz to Europe, Mid-East & N Africa).
We invite you to express your support to our content producers and visit our newly renovated web site for additional information at https://www.nexus.org and http://egradio.org .
Write us or contact us from our web site, and please let your friends know about our new programs.
With very best 73s,
Ron (on behalf of all of our staff in Milan & Dublin)
