Wycombe Sound Community Radio Station has made an application for a grant of up to £5,000 from the Aviva Community Fund.

To get a five year licence to broadcast it requires Wycombe Sound to make a submission to Ofcom for an FM frequency and they will have the opportunity to make a bid to them within the next 2 months.
Wycombe Sound has run two pilot broadcasts called RSLs (Restricted Service Licences), from December 2013 to January 2014 and in December 2014. Both of these lasted 28 days. The feedback from these pilots was second to none.
The aim on Wycombe Sound is to reach everyone within their coverage area including those who are housebound, unemployed and people with a lack of mobility including the disabled and their carers. There will be a focus on promoting the services and support which are available. Working with local groups and agencies, Wycombe Sound would run projects and create programmes for these people.
