Admin Duties

Foreward

Thank you for volunteering to admin a state/province. RepeaterBook contains over 21,000 repeaters throughout the US and Canada. One person can't manage a database of this size. With your help, RepeaterBook can be the most accurate and helpful online repeater directory available.

RepeaterBook has been online since 2006. Many other websites have come and gone, but this one stays online. The secret of success is free, accurate data. People will pay for data (they buy repeater directories all the time), this site believes the data should be a service to the community, and all information should be free.

Tools are provided on the site to help you research data. But you still will need to get out, test repeaters, and gather information. The best research is someone actually verifying the repeater is actually there, and it works.

As you may know, there are many “paper” repeaters out there. This is to say that a repeater is coordinated to operate on a channel, but there is no repeater there. This could be because there used to be, there had been plans for it, there are plans for it, or someone is squatting. These “paper” repeaters get listed in many directories because the coordination councils report them as coordinated. We like to go a step further and let the community know if the repeater is operational or not. What good is a repeater listing if you cannot key up the repeater?!
