Euronet was a genuine community radio station, with programmes for a wide range of minority groups and specialist interests.
Euronet's own programmes included:
- the TESUG Satellite Surgery, an information and advice programme for fans of satellite broadcasting
- Tender Trip, an "Anorak" programme for fans of offshore radio
- and even a programme about wrestling.
In addition, Euronet would often broadcast programmes from other stations and radio groups, notably:
- Gay To Gay, a gay community programme, originally broadcast on ILR Wear FM.
- Radio Dublin, the famous Dublin pirate
- Green Apple Radio, a dance and rave music station
- Laser Rock, which is understood to have had links with the offshore Laser.
It is possible that Euronet was inspired by short wave stations which relayed other programmes, such as Radio Fax and Drogheda's Radio Rainbow International. But Euronet went a step further, in that some of the programmes aired made a real effort to serve minoity groups who were often forgotten by the mainstream broadcasters. In early 1993, Radio Ability - a radio project by and for disabled people - approached Euronet, who were very sympathetic to the idea and planned to air its programmes.
Unfortunately, Euronet closed in spring 1993. This was a great shame, as Euronet were one of the few legal stations who really cared about minority interests, rather than just playing music in an attempt to grab listeners.

Whatever view you may hold about the programming, QEFM was most certainly a pioneer in satellite radio. The station was launched as part of a project to acquire a local UK broadcast licence. It was heard on Astra 1A and soon had, according to independent research, an audience equal to the size of a medium sized UK terrestrial radio station. Source: Vintage Broadcasting
