Classified as a Disaster Radio Network by the State of Texas, in the event of an emergency the Saltgrass Link System is available for exclusive use by the State of Texas and any served agencies in and for the affected area.
System Policy During times of non-emergency use, the Saltgrass Link System is open for any licensed Amateur Radio operator to use on a non-exclusive basis. Please remember, this is a State-Wide resource, therefore, frequent pauses in communications are required to give other stations a chance to break in if needed.

As a general rule with any Internet based linking, please pause before speaking and allow others time to join or break in during your conversation.
