XHIPN-FM, known as Radio IPN, is the radio station of the Instituto Politécnico Nacional in Mexico City. Its studios and transmitter are located at the Superior School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering (ESIME) Culhuacán.


Radio IPN traces its roots to 1984, when it was conceived as a teaching and instructional tool for students in the communications and electrical engineering programs. At that time, the IPN applied to the SCT in order to obtain a permit for the station and to begin intermittent operations on 95.7 MHz, which was issued on February 25, 1987. Located at the Unidad Profesional Culhuacán, it was given the call letters XHUPC-FM.

On September 5, 1994, XHUPC began offering regular programming 13 hours a day, five days a week. The station was known as "El Politécnico en Radio". In 1995, it added weekend programs, and 1997 saw XHUPC move to 24-hour operation.

In 2017, an administrative overhaul occurred at XHUPC as the result of the adoption of new bylaws governing the station. The change also saw new outside leadership be brought in. In November 2017, according to former station employees, the locks were changed. Said employees issued an open letter in which they decried the new leadership, hailing from Radio UNAM and UAM Radio, and the fact that an IPN alumnus was not leading the station, as had been the case during the more than 20-year leadership tenure of Ing. José Ramos Subirachs. They also declared that administration was seeking to "kidnap IPN culture".[2] The new administration made the station more institutional in nature and rebranded it as "Radio IPN".

On March 7, 2019, the Federal Telecommunications Institute approved the change of the station's call letters to XHIPN-FM, in order to increase identification of the radio station with the IPN.[3]
