IRRS-Shortwave, a service provided by NEXUS-IBA

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 been using since 1979. 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.

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 23:00 CET, we air via IRRS-Medium Wave currently on 918 kHz to Northern Italy, Southern and Central Europe (we moved from 594 kHz to 918 kHz in Q2/2021).

We plan to start a new service on Long Wave (207 kHz) to Europe in late 2021 or early 2022. Our station received a formal authorisation, 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 EnglishPlease subscribe to our mailing list.
