      I agree. I go out of my way to support those who help scouting. I've reposed the information about ICOM's support to several local Ham Radio Facebook pages. I hope they get some good advertising out of their good turn.

      This is bordering on looking a gift horse in the mouth.  A Scout is courteous.  

      The major difference is that while others might SELL great radios, Icom actually now GIVES great radios and repeaters worth nearly $100,000 to BSA. We should be grateful to the manufacturer that chose to use their own money to support our efforts to bring Amateur Radio to Scouts, rather than disparage their offerings.

      I suggest we drop this discussion now.

      Thanks and 73

        Jim Wilson, K5ND, has posted the following (May 17, 2012) from the Dayton Hamvention at www.k2bsa.net

        Icom America and the Boy Scouts of America today announced a sponsorship agreement for the K2BSA operation at the 2013 National Scout Jamboree. Icom will be the exclusive amateur radio transceiver and repeater sponsor for the Jamboree. In addition, Icom America will sponsor an amateur radio station loan program for local Boy Scout councils beginning this year.

        You can see the full press release at this link (http://www.k2bsa.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/PR-ICOM-Jamboree-V4.pdf) "Icom America announces K2BSA sponsorship", and on the Boy Scouts of America website. (http://scouting.org/Media/PressReleases/2012/20120518.aspx)

        This is yet another major step forward in the advancement of Radio Scouting.
