The HUB of our system is Cusetta Mountain 146.840 - 100 PL, which is the the highest point in nine Texas counties. This location provides the center of our Link capability system. This location also features a Remote Base Radio, a radio remotely controlled or activated that is connectable on demand with other area repeaters. Additional features are Automatic Hazardous Weather Notification, battery and solar backup power. Other connection abilities coming in the future
Our coverage area continues to expand with our Link Partners that have joined the system. We are honored to have the R.A.C.C. (Radio Amateurs of Cass County), the L.E.T.A.R.C (Longview East Texas Amateur Radio Club and the H.E.A.R. (Howard County Emergency Amateur Radio Club) serving in the Freedom Link System.
Our goal is to SAVE LIVES by providing advanced weather warning and expanded communication range for area amateur radio operators. If our system can provide advanced notification of hazardous weather in time to save one life, then all our efforts have been worthwhile. In addition to weather warning, our system is open to all licensed amateurs to use for expanded area radio communications during non-threatening weather.
For those that have been following the growth of the Freedom Ling Group, we have simplified the current format of the system. (No PL tone changes required) At some point there may be some instructional needs to connect with an outside repeater, but for this point in time the process is as easy as connecting to any repeater. All connections currently are 100% connections and are via RF (Radio Frequency) connection.
Thank You for coming on board with the Freedom Link and we hope this system enhances your communication needs.
