Gateways On The Air is back for 2022….

The aim of GOTA is to encourage RF communications via “Portable / Mobile Activity” through a network of linked Analogue & Digital Simplex Gateways thought-out the UK which are accessible to all licensed amateurs via our wide range of multi-mode connections.

Our 8 day special event is taking place between the 11th – 19th of June 2022.

Access via your local connected FreeSTAR Simplex Gateway…. If your local Simplex Gateway isn’t connected to the FreeSTAR network, then please ask the NoV or Gateway Keeper to contact bruce@freestar.network for details of how to get connected.

Just in case you needed any further encouragement to take part in the 2022 event, we have a selection of prize giveaways arranged by our good friends at Moonraker. 2022 prices TBC.
