The Mercer Island Radio Operators (MIRO) is Mercer Island’s team of volunteers (currently about two dozen active members) who provide auxiliary communications and technical support for our Police, Fire and other city departments in the event of natural or man-made emergencies when traditional communications modes and systems are not available.
We use amateur radio extensively, but we’re not “a ham radio club.” An amateur radio license is not a requirement for being part of MIRO, but it certainly helps.
