IRRS Schedules

IRRS-Shortwave and IRRS-MediumWave radio broadcasting services by NEXUS-IBA, broadcasting on Shortwave and AM/ Medium Wave from Europe to Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific.

“IRRS” stands for the Italian Radio Relay Service, the original station name we have used since 1979. Our broadcasts on Shortwave can also be aired outside our designated target areas and be beamed on-demand to any region globally, including North and South America.

Daily we air on IRRS-Shortwave from Europe using high-power transmitters from 150 to 300 kW and highly directional HF antennas, reaching worldwide. In addition, every evening from 19:00 CET until 23:15 CET, we air via IRRS-Medium Wave, currently on 1323 kHz, to Northern Italy, Southern and Central Europe (formerly on 594 kHz and 918 kHz in 2021 & early 2022). In Feb. 2022, we raised the power on 1323 kHz to provide better reception to residents and refugees in the war zones in and around Ukraine.

If you are a listener, please subscribe to our IRRS listener’s mailing list if you wish to remain updated with the latest frequency and program changes. It’s a low-traffic mailing list intended to inform listeners of any significant change in our schedule.

If you are a broadcaster or content program producer, you may wish to subscribe to our IRRS Broadcaster’s mailing list to receive the latest updates on airtime availability, promotions, new services, news and advice on International broadcasting or new slots available on AM/Medium Wave (MW), Long Wave (LW), Shortwave (SW) and satellite broadcasts.

European Gospel Radio

IRRS-Shortwave also carries Christian radio programs on behalf of European Gospel Radio (EGR). European Gospel Radio programs are listed in our schedules on this website. More information about European Gospel Radio is also available 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 worldwide. With powerful transmitters by NEXUS-IBA, European Gospel Radio outreaches Christians and non-Christians without the 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, secular and religious (non-denominational), hourly news, cultural topics, music and feature programs from around the world, 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

International Public Access Radio (IPAR)

International Public Acces Radio (IPAR) is a service by NEXUS-IBA to small (non-religious) individual program producers and non-profit organisations worldwide. If you have a general interest program, you are welcome to join IPAR and broadcast your radio program or podcast to a broad audience in Europe and beyond.

Reception reports and QSL policy

We welcome your reception reports for all of our Shortwave, Medium Wave and Long Wave broadcasts. We will acknowledge your reception report with our e-QSL card if the details of your reception are found to be correct. Besides any technical detail on our transmission, we will greatly appreciate comments on the content you have heard.

Please be patient while we process your QSL requests. We currently have more than 30 days of waiting time due to a lack of internal resources and the high submission volume. All reception reports are only accepted by filling out our Online QSL Request Form or by email at reports (at) nexus (dot) org. Unfortunately, due to the high cost of manual processing and mailing, we can no longer accept reception reports sent to our street or our old PO Box address. All QSLs are sent only by email (e-QSL).

NEXUS-IBA may send a copy of your reception report to the original programmer or supporter of our broadcasts as an anonymised copy (without your full name, address and email) as stated in our privacy policy. In addition, they may be published on our website without mentioning your full name and address. However, if you are unhappy with this provision, please do not send us your reception report and do not send a request for a QSL card. Thank You.
