DETROIT AREA HAM DISCORD - All are Welcome!
The AC8ZD Wiki is mostly information and ramblings from me. I hope you find something useful!
I humbly activate/hunt POTA these days on HF and I tinker with M17/DMR/Fusion/Allstar. I don't do anything big.. but focus on having fun, experimenting and learning/sharing knowledge with others :)
This wiki is a constant work in progress and some information may be inaccurate, outdated, or could be better stated. Please take everything you find here as more of an introduction and inspiration to find out more.
You can see the tables below for details. In general, I could be anywhere heh. but good chance I'm monitoring ZOMBIE-ALERT.
Some of my other favorites to monitor on Analog Double Nickel Repeater (443.550), DMR.. BM Michigan 3126, Mi5 Statewide 1 and 2
As mentioned, not really on all the time.. but locally I will listen to K8FBI (442.600) since I can hit it with my HT.
This is my self contained multi-mode system. I use for tinkering and not breaking other systems networks :) It generally isn't hooked up to RF except for my RF from hotspots, but you should identify anyways when connected. Not all these access methods are bridged. It's not uncommon for me to have them turned off. DMR and YSF are always available, but M17 may not be connected for example. Same with Allstar/Echolink/Hamshack Hotline. They are isolated bubbles right now and once there is a stable way to bridge them all I will.
|YSF 70777||DMR2YSF 7070777|
|M17||M17-239 Module A|
|Hamshack Hotline||Ext. 94129|
This is a linked system within the Detroit Metro area. I monitor it frequently since its low traffic and idle most of the time.
This is a relatively young (name change) linked system. It used to be DETROIT-METRO and now renamed EasternMILink to reflect the area it serves. It stretches from Toledo Ohio up to almost near the Mackinaw Bridge area.
|D-Star||REF106A / XRF106A / DCS106A|
