Still Want to Know More?

The purpose of our group is to improve radio skills and facilitate a growing communication network of individuals within Michigan and neighboring states who are prepared to pass information in any future contingency. Our vision for the group is simple. MPURN will act as a relay or provide advanced communication using data modes such as PSK31, JS8CALL or Contestia. MPURN will be able to link multiple groups together for mutual assistance.

​I know, if SHTF we don’t need a license. Correct if your definition of SHTF matches the FCC definition. FCC fines are HUGE and not worth the risk. If you are one of those people that will argue this then please leave, this group is not for you. We must practice our craft or we will fail when called upon.

​MPURN is social, look for us on Facebook and MeWe!

​We accept donations to keep this website going, provide training, host antenna build classes and attend expos to continue growing our reach. If you would like to contribute please click this link. Thank you!

We have also maintained a method of leadership that has made it difficult for new members to tell who the leader was. Everyone here has value. These qualities must…
