Print Radio Tasmania (callsign 7RPH) is a radio station based in Hobart, Tasmania. It is a reading and information service for those persons unable to read or easily access information in print. The station is run and operated by volunteers.

Programs broadcast range from live reading of local and national newspapers to magazine and serialised book readings. [cite web |title=Value our Voices |url=http://www.cbonline.org.au/%5Cmedia%5CElection_07%5CRPH_Summary1.1.pdf |date=2007 |accessdate=2008-08-04 |publisher=CBAA ]
