IRRS-Shortwave (the Italian Radio Relay Service) is a service provided by NEXUS-IBA, broadcasting on Shortwave from Europe to Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific. Our broadcasts on Shortwave can also be aired outside of our designated target areas and be beamed on-demand to any region globally, including North and South America.
Every evening from 19:00 CET until 23:00 CET, we also air via IRRS-Medium Wave currently on 594 kHz to N Italy and Central Europe (to be moved to 918 kHz in late Q3/2021).
A tentative service on Long Wave (207 kHz) to Europe is planned to start in late 2021. A formal authorisation has been obtained, but we are waiting for final clearance from local authorities to start regular broadcasts. You may already hear occasional, unscheduled, antenna and transmitter tuning tests on this frequency.
European Gospel Radio
IRRS-Shortwave also carries Christian radio programs on behalf of European Gospel Radio (EGR). You can find European Gospel Radio programs listed in our schedules on this website. More information about European Gospel Radio is available also on our website.
For more details on Christian radio broadcasts, please check the European Gospel Radio website to learn about the EGR mission to help Christians preach the Bible and the Gospel to remote areas in the world. With powerful transmitters provided by NEXUS-IBA, European Gospel Radio outreaches Christians and non-Christians where there is no Internet, where Missionaries are not allowed to travel, or where Christian media is censored.
You may hear a selection of NEXUS-IBA members’ programs over our stations, either secular and religious (non-denominational), hourly news, cultural topics, music and feature programs from around the world, also available 24/7 via our streaming audio service. We currently operate two streaming channels:
- IRN (Internet Radio NEXUS) that simulcast IRRS-Shortwave at the time of operation, as well as news, features, religious programs and music 24/7 in English
- All Gospel Radio: a 24/7 channel dedicated to Christian programs, news and Christian music 24/7 in English
