FreeSTAR Net Control – Bringing the QSO to you!

The famous FreeSTAR nets have one purpose! Collaborate worldwide & welcome new amateurs! Most of all… they are fun!

The FreeSTAR nets have been a founding principle in FreeSTAR’s evolution and we embrace nets & net operators all around the World! We have encouraged lots of people to join in our nets and influenced net controllers to start new nets on the FreeSTAR Network.

Look below on who runs the nets we host on the FreeSTAR UK Multi-mode Network.
