Go Portable

The aim of GOTA is to encourage RF communications and “Portable / Mobile Activity” through our network of linked Simplex Gateways which is accessible to ALL licensed amateurs via our wide range of multi-mode connections.

Our 2021 “Special Event” is taking place between the 12th and 20th of June 2021.

Access via your local connected FreeSTAR Simplex Gateway…. If your local Simplex Gateway isn’t connected to the FreeSTAR network, ask the Gateway Keeper to contact FreeSTAR for details of how to connect.

Just in case you needed any further encouragement to take part in the 2021 Special Event, we have a selection of prize giveaways arranged by our good friends at Moonraker.
