In order to air via IRRS-Shortwave membership with NEXUS-IBA is required. The associate membership fee is US $100 (yearly, January till December) or US $50 from July till December. A nominal fee is charged or every broadcast hour.
How should I send any program material?
To have access to Small Program Producer Promotion you will have to encode any audio files in MP3, and upload them to one of our server. Or you may send us your program recorded on CD ahead of broadcast time.
Can I use other media to record my audio programs ?
Audio programs can also be delivered via ordinary mail to our address in Milan, Italy, and recorded on cassette tapes, CDs, or we may arrange for a phone feed. In all these cases additional costs will be added to cover the conversion from analogue to digital audio. It will be much cheaper and reliable for you to encode any program material digitally and transfer them to NEXUS-IBA's Network Control Centre via the Internet.
