North American Repeater Directory

Hi All,

    I just found this on-line repeater directory. Indiana repeaters have not been populated. I have volunteered as an admin for Indiana. I should get information this evening on the tools that I will have available as an admin. Individuals can make entries or send them to me and I will add it for you. Try to provide as much information about any repeater that you want added. To see what I will be trying to enter see the Colorado state page.

   The URL is http://www.repeaterbook.com/index.php

This site includes the most up-to-date amateur radio repeater listings (updated by you and our admins) for the US and Canada. We are adding repeaters everyday, but need your help. Please submit new updates to repeater data whenever you see something outdated or incorrect.

What makes this site different than others? We use admins located in the states and provinces that we cover to collect repeater data and add it to the site. This is not just some outdated and stale repeater directory with copied information from the ARRL.

Repeaterbook is more than a repeater directory. We also cross-reference with EchoLink and IRLP status to give you a comprehensive view of a repeater. There are also many export functions for Google Maps, Google Earth, Excel, or your favorite rig programming software.


Any questions please contact me desloan @ earthlink.net (take out the spaces).

Digital modes?

 Anyone in the area run any digital modes? I hear some APRS packet but that's pretty much it. At least unless you count Dstar, apparently I've heard one of the Cincinnati Dstar repeaters. I have a MFJ 1278B Multimode Data controller and an AEA PK-12 packet modem that are going fairly unused so far. I used my PK-12 a lot back in the 90s when packet was still pretty hopping. Looks like that's all dried up and all anyone cares about anymore is APRS.

I'm thinking about building a sound card interface for software digital modes. I found one here. Pretty simple, I think. Just gotta order the parts from somewhere like Mouser or Digikey and then build it up. Shouldn't take more than an hour to build. PSK31 looks interesting to try. I've been listening on 2m ssb for anything and I hear nothing. Guess I need to build up my Softrock RXTX or get my ts520 going. :)

IRLP

Anyone using the IRLP on 444.025 Mhz + offset and 74.4 CTCSS? Curtis has information about his system at http://2590salem.webs.com/4106.htm Nice way to talk to an area when their is no direct propagation available.
