Scouting Radio began test transmissions in 2004 and went live on Founders Day 2005. We had little idea of where it would be today (can it be that long ago?). We truly appreciate readers and listeners expressions of thanks and support. Your support has helped us grow and grow to the only 24/7 internet radio station for Scouting which is endorsed by the Honorable Michael Baden-Powell
It is the generosity of you, our listeners and supporters, that enables Scouting Radio to stay on air – Thank You!
What began as a simple college project has grown into an award winning internet radio station. Our volunteer team devote many hours a week to producing content and answering email. All of this will remain freely available to everyone.

Become an underwriter or our daily sponsor
If you are a business you may become our daily sponsor (underwriter). Day sponsor messages air five times on the day of your choice.
An underwriting acknowledgment always begins with the same lead-in: “This programme is made possible in part by Scouting Radio listener donations and a grant from…” After that, we can go as long as 15 seconds, which doesn’t sound like a lot, but we fit quite a bit in.
What we cannot say is any statement that is qualitative (“the best…”), solicitory (a call to action, as in “call now!”), comparative (that is, language specifically intended to distinguish one's business from one's competitors), or includes price information. Nor can we use music beds (that is, theme music behind the acknowledgment).
