Reflectors are a great source of information on selected topics. It’s sort of like the “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” TV show where a stumped contestant can “ask the audience” for the answers. What they get back is a bar graph from people who are knowledgable about the subject and answers from those who don’t know anything about the subject. It’s up to the contestant to figure out if the bar graph gives them the right answer.

Same from Refectors. You ask a question on a topic, say tower installation, and you will get several answers back that may disagree among themselves. But often, there is more than only one correct answer in antenna construction, but several methods of installation providing that they safe. Here are some of my favorites:

TOWERTALK – about antennas and tower, etc. Join TowerTalk at this LINK.

WSJTgroup – about the Joe taylor Weak Signal digital modes. Join the Yahoo group at the YAHOO GROUP LINK.

N1MMloggerplus – a free contesting logging program. Most serious logging programs have their own reflectors such as DX4WIN, N3FJP, etc. Join the Yahoo group at YAHOO GROUP LINK.

FFMA – about the ARRL’s Fred Fish Memorial Award for working all 488 6-meter Maidenhead grids in the 48 contiguous United States. Join the Yahoo group at YAHOO GROUP LINK.
