Radius search seems to be broken when doing a Proximity Repeater Search.

If I tell it that I only want repeaters in a 50 mile radius I will get repeaters that are 80 miles away. Some are 2 states away from my location. It doesn't matter if I do zipcode or city and state.

It's a pain to go back through the exported list, resort it by distance using an excel macro and then removing the additional 15 or so repeaters that should have been filtered out of the search.

Can you send me a link? The problem I have is that when I query repeaters based on lat and long, it creates a box around the coordinate instead of a circle. The corners are further away from the center than the point midway between to corners.

Well, good news. I just put in some code that filters out everything beyond the radius you requested. Just needed a little push. I have tested the code and will begin rolling it out.

Yesterday the 'external data' feature of RT Systems TH-D74 programmer for RepeaterBook seemed to be working fine.

Today, I get back three empty rows of data.

I did buy and install the programmer for the Alinco DR-235T, so that might have updated something and caused this problem.

Is this related to that problem or do I need to talk to the RT Systems folks about this?
