List of radio stations in Greece

Greece has well over 1,000 radio stations, most of them on the FM band, the AM band being almost entirely abandoned by everyone but the State-run media. In March, 2001, the Greek government shut down approximately 60 of the 90+ FM radio stations in the Athens area, citing interference to frequencies to be used by the new Athens International Airport. There are some who believe that the government shut down these stations as a political favor to powerful publishing and media groups, whose stations, for the most part, remained on the air, while others argued that the licensing process was legally inconsistent. As a result, the licensing process came under legal scrutiny, and in 2002, 8 of these stations reopened, and in 2004-2005, several more stations reopened following a relevant court order. Since then, more stations have opened, most of them without any legal permission to do so. Many of these stations are the same ones which were shut down in 2001. It is unknown yet what a new licensing process will look like and what it will require of applicants, which stations and how many stations will be licensed, and what will happen to stations that are unlicensed, considering the current government's inability or lack of will to control the airwaves. Here is a list of some major FM stations in Greece.:

Athens region

Most radio stations in Athens broadcast from Mount Ymittos, to the east of the city (but west of the Athens International Airport in Spata. A smaller minority of stations operate from Mount Parnitha, northwest of the city, or Mount Aigaleo, bordering the west of the city. Many stations also have repeaters on the island of Aegina, south of Athens in the Saronic Sea, to cover coastal regions of Athens, including Glyfada and Vouliagmeni, which due to the topography of the region, cannot receive clear signals from the other locations.

Most stations broadcast in stereo and several employ the Radio Data System (RDS) technology. Most stations also broadcast with rather high wattage, ranging anywhere from 2kW to 15-30 kW or perhaps more, as official data on this isn't made available publicly. Currently, 41 private stations are legally permitted to broadcast in Athens, in addition to the state radio broadcast stations.

Recently, BARI-Focus - - was chosen as the official company to measure audience listening data and ratings for stations in the Athens region. Previous to that, BARI-Focus had been one of several companies tracking audience ratings.

Thessaloniki region

In the Thessaloniki region a licensing bid for 27 FM frequencies has been on hold for several years, while engineering studies have shown that up to 19 more radio stations could possibly broadcast safely in the region, though it remains to be seen how many, if any, additional frequencies will be tendered.

Most radio stations in Thessaloniki broadcast from Mount Hortiatis, slightly northeast of the city. A very small minority broadcast from or have repeaters in other points throughout the region. Most stations broadcast in stereo, but a small (but slowly growing) number use the Radio Data System. Like in Athens, most stations use excessively high wattage. Temporarily, most, but not all, stations are broadcasting with legal "permission" from Greece's Radio-Television Committee (Ethniko Simvoulio Radiotileorasis), until and if new licenses are issued.
