Additional news and information radio programs widening the debate around peace in the Middle East and Iraq are being aired via Shortwave radio and beamed to Europe, North Africa and the Middle East via IRRS-Shortwave. The station operates on a new frequecy of 5,780 kHz from NEXUS-IBAs facilities effective Feb. 20, 2003. Programs may be heard every evening between 2100-2230 Central European Time (2000-2130 UTC until March 30, and after then from 1900-2030 UTC, summertime) on the frequency of 5,780 kHz Shortwave. Listeners outside the target areas may tune to NEXUS-IBAs 24 hrs streaming audio service.
