Tasmania had eleven community radio stations operating in September 2003. Apart from 7RPH radio for the print handicapped, these stations transmit in the FM frequency band.

Huon FM (7RGY) on 95.3 MHz is a community-radio station covering the Huon Valley and D’Entrecasteaux Channel. In Hobart, 7HFC broadcasts adult contemporary music, while THE FM broadcasts multicultural and specialist music programs. 7LTN and 7WAY in Launceston broadcast to local community audiences, as does 7DBS in Wynyard.

Four radio stations commenced operation in 2003 - Edge Radio, which specifically caters for younger people, and Heart FM, BOD FM and Tasman FM, which all broadcast to local community audiences.
