Argyll FM broadcasting for our community

Help Argyll FM stay on the air-waves!


Argyll FM has been broadcasting to the community since the year 2000.  We are all volunteers and we endeavour to serve as wide a community as possible both physically and culturally.

Argyll FM started out as Kintyre Community Radio and we have tried to keep the same community spirit going as we extended our coverage to other parts of Argyll.

There are many expenses involved in maintaining a radio station;  we have a broadcasting licence which comes up for renewal in 2019, annual rental for transmission masts and equipment maintenance and replacement.  This all runs to over £20,000 annually.  Our income comes from memberships, donations, grant applications, sponsorship and advertising revenue.


We need your help now. 


You can:
Become a member: Membership forms will be available at Argyll FM on Longrow South and from local shops (Keith's Newsagents).  Membership is open to individuals and organisations.

Make a donation: Use the button on the Donate tab or check out our Facebook page.

Membership will also be available via the donation button if you prefer to join online.

You can become a sponsor.

As a local company you can become an advertiser.

If you are aware of funders that can assist you can give us details.

Or if you represent a trust or charity that wishes to help us you can get in touch.

Public Interest

Argyll FM is run entirely by volunteers. The licence for us to continue broadcasting has to be renewed in 2019. Applications have to be submitted in March 2018. The cost of the licence is around £11,000.

Argyll FM now finds itself in a position where the costs against income cannot be sustained. The mast sites alone cost the company in excess of £16,000 per year (an increase of 100% in recent years).

Without the generosity of local advertisers, fund raisers, individuals and organisations who have donated money we could not have kept going for the last 17 years. 

The directors have reached a point now where they have to consider whether Argyll FM could or should continue in its present form, if at all.

We would be interested to hear from listeners, advertisers and potential funders about what you feel Argyll FM offers and if there is still a place for a community based station.

Contact us by email at argyllradio@hotmail.com or write to 27-29 Longrow, Campbeltown, PA28 6ER.
