The state ID and the Repeater I are collectively known as the Repeater ID, but the structure is divided into two parts: state ID-Repeater ID. And example is 41-123.

-The state ID can indicate which country a repeater belongs to.

-Repeaterbook is not using a FIPS code to specify the country of the United States. This is a historical issue as Repeaterbook was initially designed to only display repeaters in the United States.

The state ID represents the state [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Federal_Information_Processing_Standard_state_code|FIPS code]], which is a two-digit numeric character. The US is the only country that uses a purely numeric, two-digit state ID.
  
 === Canada and Mexico === === Canada and Mexico ===
-Canada and Mexico state IDs include the country designator along with the state or province FIPS code. Their codes are a four digit alphanumeric character. The first two characters are the country'​s FIPS code (Canada is CA and Mexico is MX). The last two characters are numeric and represent the province (Canada) or state (Mexico) the repeater resides in. +Canada and Mexico state IDs include the country designator along with the state or province FIPS code.
