A reflector (or as it's other name, mailing list) is a subscription service hosted by a provider that specializes in a given topic. Up to last December, Yahoo groups was the go-to place for scanning reflectors. Now that it is gone, a great many of them have moved to groups.io and many other platforms such as Facebook.

It's useful for newcomers to join such lists; we're rather large and sometimes that can intimidate a new person. Too a more geo focused group can sometimes get answers that it might be hard to get elsewhere.

So with that in mind, I'd like to encourage folks to add their group - be it on groups.io, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, etc. - to our wiki. We already have some, but there's no way one person can search every state, nook and cranny. That's where you come in.

In addition, if you would like to add your area's wiki page to your club's listing, the wiki can be easily used for this purpose. Of course, as a standard practice, a reciprocal link back to RadioReference is encouraged. A wiki page can be linked just like any other web page; no special encoding is necessary. As an example, see the very bottom of this page for the Capitol Hill Monitors, a group that specializes in the Delmarva (Delaware, Maryland and Virginia) areas
