What is...


What is FreeSTAR?

FreeSTAR is a Multi-Mode network. It is based around Allstar which is the network to which FreeSTAR sits in. Think of Allstar as the “Galaxy”. FreeSTAR is the cluster of planets and the gateways/repeaters and multimode links are the moons that orbit the planets. The network is built up in such a way that all connected modes are tunnelled into a single channel or point of entry using various technologies. For more information about FreeSTAR click here!

Are there any NETS or WORLDWIDE activities on FreeSTAR?

Absolutely! We host many nets on FreeSTAR including Top talk, M7NET & world-wide nets such as Trans-Canada & IRN Multi-mode. If you would like to participate or bring one of your own nets to FreeSTAR please by all means contact us! Visit the NET Control page for more on the nets we host!

How do I connect to FreeSTAR?

There are various ways to connect to FreeSTAR. The best way is to check out the How to Connect page and learn what modes you are familiar with to connect with. We find EchoLink or DMR is the easiest way, but check if your local repeater has connectivity to a compatible mode or ask your local repeater group for more details.

How much does it cost to join the FreeSTAR Network?

To join FreeSTAR is completely free! We do not expect anything for the services we provide. However provide a way to donate. Please see the donation page for more details. We kindly appreciate your support and it all goes to the maintenance & upkeep of the servers.
