About AmRRON

Founded in 2011

AmRRON Guiding Principles (Mission Statement expounded)

1. All patriot-minded radio operators are welcome and encouraged to train, participate, and contribute for the purposes of disaster response and civil defense. When it is within an AmRRON operator’s ability, he/she should always selflessly contribute to the preservation and protection of life, liberty, and property.

2. Proficiency is encouraged with all forms of communications, including licensed Amateur Radio, license free radios, and any other type of communications method.

3. All citizens are sensors (eyes and ears) during a disaster. The network exists not only for you to stay informed, but for you to inform others as well, sharing important information about developments and aiding in everyone’s overall situational awareness.

4. AmRRON operators are willing to render communications assistance where it is needed and wanted, and avoid interfering where it is not.

5. AmRRON operators should always be willing and capable of supporting leaders in their communities who may not have communications capabilities, and may include clergy, community leaders, elected officials, and other patriot-minded organizations.

6. AmRRON members should be self-reliant, ready and skilled to provide communications in most any environment, under austere conditions, with little or no outside support for indefinite periods of time, especially when there is no commercial power or communications infrastructure.

7. AmRRON operators are committed to supporting and advancing traditional American values, our heritage, liberty, Christian charity, lawfulness, and helping our fellow countrymen in times of crisis, and never supporting those whose objectives are in conflict with those values and ideals.

Founded in 2011, the American Redoubt Radio Operators Network (AmRRON) began as a radio communications network to share information and coordinate in response to disasters in the Pacific Northwest.  By 2013 members joined from over half of the other states in the US.  The American Preparedness Radio Network (TAPRN) on the east coast merged with AmRRON in 2013.

By 2014, AmRRON/TAPRN consisted of members from every state, and now consists of members in Canada, Puerto Rico, South Africa, Japan and elsewhere.

Over the past decade, we have responded to numerous real-world disasters, including hurricanes, wildfires, floods, and other incidents, providing communications support to those in the affected areas.

AmRRON consists of members from all walks of life, from the layman to the professional, government and citizens, military and law enforcement, and civilians.  One thing we all share in common is our love for our country and the founding principles that made America exceptional.  Additionally, our members share a love of service and commitment to our families, our communities, and our country in times of greatest need.
