Ayios Nikolaos Station, (Also spelled Agios Nikolaos Station, Template:Lang-el) is a British army station and part of in the British Sovereign Base Area of Dhekelia in Cyprus. It is a former village (Ayios Nikolaos, SBA) connected by a road to the main area of the Dhekelia Garrison. The Joint Service Signal Unit (JSSU), formerly 9 Signal Regiment (2 Wireless Regiment pre-1959) and the Royal Air Force's 33 Signals Unit, is based at Ayios Nikolaos. This unit is a British Armed Forces run Government Communications Headquarters electronic intelligence gathering station.[1]

The Joint Service Signal Unit (Cyprus) (JSSU(Cyp)) was formed on 27 May 2003 as a result of the amalgamation of the Joint Service Signal Unit (Ayios Nikolaos) and elements of 33 Signals Unit RAF.[2] It is a three-squadron organisation, commanded by a Royal Signals Lieutenant Colonel, with a number of Royal Air Force and civilian contractors attached.

Note that Ayios Nikolaos or Agios Nikolaos is a very common place name in Greece and Cyprus since it is Greek for "Saint Nicholas".
