    Just wanted to let everyone know that USREPEATERS.COM now has downloadable repeater directories. Download in PDF format. With over 18,000 repeaters listed

    These directories are generated from the database the second you click. So it is always uptodate with the latest information.

    In the event you find a edit that needs to be made you can log into the website. make the edit and as soon as the change takes place simply redownload the directory and print it, save it on your desktop or use it however.

    This feature has been the most asked for feature from our users.

    144_148, 420_450, 902_928, and 222_225 are online right now at http://www.usrepeaters.com with 51_54, 29.5_29.7, and 1240+ due to be activated this weekend.

    Here is a sample pic for everyone and as you can see you have full PDF control and the directory prints on 8-1/2x11 Letter size paper for better viewing.

    Looks like there is a big fee to download.

    Yes you can get a months trial membership for $2.00 to see if you like the service or not. We offer the frequencies in individual packages ($5.99) because most people only use one or two bands at the most and do not want to be downloading information not needed. so to streamline the info we broke it apart. You can get all packages for the $14.99 a year and only download what you need as well, and always be assured the rest of the info is there is you need it.

    I feel the price is fair. $5.99 is less than the ARRL handbook and ours is always up to date. and always downloadable. The Information is not made into the directory until you request it and as soon as you click the button it takes the latest info and there ya go. This is a a year long subscription.

    So no there are no higher fees unless he was referring to the $2.00, $5.99 or $14.99, all of which are fair for the service rendered and less than otherwise. All fees go to support the website and software used. So all support is appreciated.

    On a side note. If anyone cannot afford to help support the site by having a membership and needs a Repeater directory email me i will send you one. Membership is not required to use the website and all information is available free of charge. Just use the links in the main menu to look up your Band, and State. Thanks Jim

    PDF?

    Too bad it's not offered in a CSV file format. That would make it importable in a lot of programming software and save a lot of typing.
    just a thought......................:D

    I was not implying the fee is excessive, but it was not mentioned in the original message.

    Kewel :D lots of repeaters listed for Ohio. Would be great if they could break it down to the 5 districts.

    Counties and districts is something i have been toying with. and it really would not be hard to do. If i export the Database and open it in Excel and Cross reference the Latitude and Longitude with geocoding software we use, we should be able to create another field for County/District. In addition I have been wanting to do this to implement a County Mapping Repeater Map, so the same information would allow us to Setup County Maps showing all in that county/district with approximate lat/lon

    So keep checking back, I have a big list of things i am working on and have this on that list. Thanks for the interest. Jim



    Edit* Thought i would add, that We are coming out with a new Repeater Mapping utility letting you Set you start point and End point and select waypoints, Map will then Generate directions for your from point to point and will show you the repeaters along the way. around each point and waypoint. Good for vacationer. That is on its way as well.
