2XX has been giving a voice to the Canberra community since 1976.

As Canberra’s longest running community radio station, we proudly offer an alternative content to commercial radio.

Switch on from anywhere, hear the world

2XX can be found on DAB+ digital radio as well as on Canberra FM 98.3. We also have a growing online audience who listen live or on demand at 2xxfm.org.au from all over the world.

Our diverse and inspiring mix of locally grown music, enterainment, current affairs, and multicultural language programs is complemented by the Community Radio Network. The CRN allows 2XX to share some of the best programs from other community radio stations around Australia and overseas. This means that we bring you a wider listening experience. 

2XX has a long history with some CRN programs, like Democracy Now, which we’ve broadcast since we first recieved the tapes in the mail in the 1970s! We continue to actively support CRN projects through endorsement, and by submitting programs.

Your local connection

Many Canberra locals have a 2XX connection – as listeners, subscribers, volunteers or just by dropping into the studios over the years. We continue to nurture voices that are often unheard, and encourage listeners to reach out.

Since the early days, 2XX has been a hive of community action – a platform for local musicians, entertainment, and for sharing news and information.

As a not-for-profit community radio station we are supported by our subscribers and sponsors, through donations and grant funding.
