I'm programming my FT-60 which only supports analog FM repeaters. Many repeaters use digital protocols such as D-STAR or DMR. When doing a location search, an option to list only repeaters that support analog FM would be helpful.

Thanks,

I've found the android app will allow you to specify FM as a setting when doing your search. The Web application does not.
How do we raise this as a request for the Web application?

Yes. I’m thinking about it. The web is built a bit differently. We don’t actually track repeaters as being FM or not unless their mixed-mode and in the app, we assume they are analog unless they have a digital mode and the mixed-mode box checked. Are you looking for the ability to search for a DMR repeater that is mixed-mode?

The web site uses a variety of search pages with multiple options where the app is just one search type. What type of a result are you looking for specifically and I’ll see if we already do that or need to add a functionality.

I'm mostly talking about Location Search, which conveniently gives a list of certain repeaters in an area. Currently, I sort my results by DGTL^, so I can easily ignore any repeaters that have digital support. It'd be more intuitive, if under Feature Menu, there was an option to list only repeaters that are not digital, or maybe only repeaters that support FM as one of their modes.

Perfect. I followed it through to the mapping and exports. Hopefully there are no dead ends.
