"War Room Pandemic" (COVID-19)
Since IRRS & NEXUS-IBA started relaying programs on shortwave in 1989, severalorganizations and individuals appeared on the market as "competitors", offering
similar services, sometimes in a fraudulent and very un-professional way. We
came across people charging for fake (not existing) transmissions, and producing
fake listeners' letters, as well as broadcasts that are cheap, but so poor in
quality that cannot not be heard on the intended target, and those who
commission them have no means to check them.
In order to protect our interests and those of our members against such
competitors, our policy had to be changed in recent years not to disclose
information about our transmitter sites and our agreements with our service
providers and governments. Since we aim to to provide top quality broadcasting
services at the lowest possible cost to our members, our transmitting sites may
change as several technical and contractual conditions change.
There is a simple way to explain this: when you buy anything at your local shop,
did you tried asking where exactly do they buy items that they sell to you? I am
sure no shop-keeper, service provider or reseller will provide you information
of their own sources for the same reason.
Sometimes multiple transmitters are involved in order to provide better coverage
and/or redundancy. Nevertheless these sites will remain confidential and are not
disclosed to the general public. There has been lots of speculations during the
years (right and wrong) when different "experts" tried to locate every and each
of our transmitter sites, and then published misleading information on the
internet and on other publications.
Only the power, time, program type, language and especially the target area is
clearly published in our schedules. We believe that this is the information that
our listeners need to know in order to tune into our members' broadcasts.
Our programs are all originating from our Network Control Centre (NCC) in Milan,
Italy, where we operate all of our broadcasting services.
