The World Wide Repeater Directory Partners with RAC and Canadian Amateurs!

Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC) and RFinder are excited to announce a new business partnership agreement effective March 1. RAC endorses RFinder as the official Worldwide Repeater Directory for all Canadian Amateur Radio operators.  We are working feverishly to update the repeater lists for Canada.  While we have over a thousand machines in CA, without official coordinated lists we have to rely on you, the amateur community in Canada to help us create the first official accurate list of machines in Canada.  Please update any errors either in the apps on Android or iPhone or at http://web.rfinder.net.  Missing machines can be added at http://add.rfinder.net.


The World Wide Repeater Directory Invites Frequency Coordinators worldwide!

The World Wide Repeater Directory (WWRD) is the world's only geo-enabled repeater directory accessible using the RFinder family of repeater locators on Android, iPhone, web, and applications on Windows, Linux and Macintosh.

WWRD is inviting FC's worldwide to use the WWRD through RFinder/Web to help them do their job as frequency coordinators. RFinder/Web already shows repeaters on a map and we've been told by several FC's that being able to see the repeaters across borders is very helpful also. We are looking for a wishlist from FC's to build a special portal for FC's to have the tools they need to make frequency coordination easier. We already have FC's from several countries using RFinder/Web as a tool in their coordination activities.

To that end, Frequency Coordinators of planet Earth, here is your invite...go to http://www.rfinder.net/adminreg.html and request an ID. We will create your id and send you an email with a spreadsheet with the machines we have in your area of responsibiity after you have been approved. Please edit the list with what you have, update the range field and HAAT field if you can. We will be giving you tools in the future based on that information. You will be able to use RFinder/Web free of charge to maintain your list and use the mapping features. Again, please send your wishlist of features to w2cyk@rfinder.net.

If you purchase the app for Android and/or iPhone, please use the same email/password as we will be adding features to RFinder that will be unlocked to your ID. We cannot give those out for free due to the licensing issues and upgrade issues on the App Store and Google Play. Your FC subscription will follow your app though.

If you prefer to give us your current repeater data in a spreadsheet instead of editing them on the web, please download this one and put them in there...http://www.rfinder.net/rfindersheet.xls. Email your list to w2cyk@rfinder.net. We will load them ASAP and email you when done. Anyone can add individual machines at any time at http://add.rfinder.net.

Thank you all for your overwhelming support. This has been an exciting year.
