Satellite service

Satellite service involves the communication of terrestrial satellite stations with space satellite stations via a satellite radio links. Terrestrial satellite stations may be fixed, mobile or transportable [e.g. outside broadcast satellite stations (Satellite News Gathering-SNG – Fly Αway)].

For fixed/transportable satellite links, the radio frequency bands provided for in the National Regulation on the Allocation of Radio Frequency Bands (NRFBA) can be used under the conditions provided for in the Regulation on terms of use for radio spectrum. 

Where an individual right of use is required for a specific band of radio frequencies, you need to follow the procedure described in the Regulation on the use and granting of rights to use individual radio frequencies or radio frequency bands under General Authorization.


For your convenience, you may fill out an online application for the following cases:

  • Granting of new right of use. 
  • Amending an existing right of use. 
  • Revoking an existing right. 
  • Changes in the information (e.g. contact details) of a holder of a right of use.  

Before submitting an application, you are advised to read carefully the instructions text in order to avoid any omissions that might delay its processing. 

For the categories of stations exempted from granting of individual rights of use for a radio frequency, you need to submit a relevant notification, before the station is put into operation.


For the use of radio spectrum in certain categories of satellite stations, you are required to pay fees. Fees are calculated based on the following Regulations (available in Greek).
