Radio Amateur Association of Greece (RAAG)

Radio Amateur Association of Greece (RAAG) is a non-commercial, non-governmental association of radio amateurs. It was founded in 1958 and is a member of International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) since 1959.

RAAG has more than 2000 members and is Greece’s internationally recognized National Society for all radio amateurs. Its scope is to promote radio communications and experimentation and to assist the public in emergency cases.

It runs the only official QSL Bureau for incoming and outgoing QSL cards for Greece (including Crete and Dodecanese islands and Mt. Athos), publishes a bi-monthly amateur radio e-magazine called SV NEA and has an extended network with analogue voice (FM) as well as digital voice (DV) repeaters and packet radio digital repeaters (APRS). It runs as well HF and Satellite gateways able to provide communications in the event of disaster and other emergencies. RAAG offers to its member’s free civil liability insurance for their antennas.

In 1980 RAAG has founded its Amateur Radio Emergency Groups, which consist of trained amateur radio operator volunteers organized to assist in public service and emergency communications.

RAAG holds preparatory lessons for the participation in the state exams for the amateur radio license and provides handbooks with the examination material.

The Club premises are in Peristeri, Athens, near the metro station Agios Antonios. Working hours on Wednesdays 17:30 – 20:30 hrs.
