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This wiki is a constant work in progress and some information may be inaccurate, outdated, or could be better stated.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.
NEW LISTEN AND MONITOR LIVE – You can hear what I can hear :)
This is my YSF reflector that sometimes is linked up to one of the larger networks when I'm listening to nets. It's one way to reach me directly if you have a hotspot.

|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.
