Thanks for asking; I'm looking for highest by elevation, with the typical coordination information of frequency, power out, antenna type and gain.

Highest repeaters per state?  Highest elevation, power-output or frequency?

We don't routinely track the elevation of repeaters.

Hi Garrett, I'd be more than happy to help with West Virginia, I lived up there for some time and worked as a 911 Dispatcher/Call Taker and am moving back this summer for a couple of months to do the same. 

 

Thanks!

Email Reduction

Garrett Dow - Site Admin/Owner (KD6KPC)
 

In an effort to reduce redundant information and the number of emails our members receive in their inboxes, we are eliminating the confirmation email we sent when a request was made to add or edit a repeater. The confirmation was always presented on the screen at the time of the request and will continue to be confirmed in that way, but we also sent a redundant email confirmation. We are ending that practice. We just wanted to let you know in the event you have grown accustomed to receiving that email. We didn't want you to think the request was not received.

There is no change to the emails received by our admins when a request is received and requesters will still receive an email when the request is processed.

Thank you and happy holidays!

Hi Sam,
 
Thanks for taking the time to politely answer my questions so quickly. 
 
I took notes on your excellent RepeaterBook YouTube video yesterday. 
 
Nice to meet you!

Re: Question About Multimode Repeaters

 

They would be digital ONLY unless it's marked as a mixed mode repeater. Some repeaters can do multiple modes depending on the radio being used at the time by the end user! 

As far as echolink and such go...you should be able to use those just fine as those are analog based IRLP connections.

Question About Multimode Repeaters

Mark K0ABD
 

 
Hello everyone,
 
I'm a novice HAM with some very basic questions about repeaters access. 
 
Any positive suggestions would be appreciated!
 
My rig is a non-digital Baofeng BF8HP
 
Regarding my first question, I glanced through FAQ & wiki & didn't find info specific to it, although I could have overlooked it.
 
So here it is:
 
In the Tone column I noticed the PL tones for some 2 Meter repeaters in Massachusetts have digital modes. 
 
When I select 145.1600 -0.6 MHz DSTR Brookline Suffolk K1MRA, it has "D-STAR Enabled" with 2 meter uplink/downlink frequencies. 
 
Similarly, when I click on 146.4900 -1.5 MHz CC1 Boston Suffolk N1PA, it is "DMR Enabled." 
 
Do the terms "D-STAR Enabled" & "DMR Enabled" mean these are also FM repeaters (dual/multi-mode) that I could connect to with my rig? Or are they exclusively digital?
 
Regarding the Special Modes, from what I understand I should be able to access EchoLink, AllStar, & IRLP repeaters with my rig?
 
thank you,
 
Mark/K0ABD

Re: Where Do We Send Corrections?

You’re welcome.  I hope it helps.  That is what the next step is after you submit your request.  The Administrator for the U.S. State or Canadian Province will see that and log in to make those submissions.

Hi.

 

I'm finding quite a few repeaters in my area listings that are either

no longer on the air, or have switched modes entirely. Where should I

send info like this so Repeaterbook can be more accurate?

Re: Where Do We Send Corrections?

If that somehow fails and you don’t get an email that your submitted changes have been made, get up with Garrett, KD6KPC, who owns the site, and ask him to do it.  However, if your Province Administrator receives your request, they should make them because the site is designed to email the state/province Administrator of repeater edit requests.
