Winlink:  We have been asked so many times we lost count to support Winlink.  As of 1 September, 2012, we will have a weekly feed of Winlink Remote Mail Servers.  They are designated (RMS) in the system  but we are currently revamping our apps on Android, iPhone and web.rfinder.net to allow showing only individual node types (ie IRLP, RMS, Echolink, DStar, AllStar, etc.).

Saturday, July 7th, 2012

Press Release
07/06/2012
From the QTH of W2CYK
For immediate release

RFinder – The Worldwide Repeater Directory (WWRD) now has a new user interface!  AvMap G5/G6 APRS, the GPS for Amateur Radio Operators.

We are pleased to announce that RFinder support AvMap Points of Interest. This means you can pre-populate your GPS device with repeater data on your route, and see machines on the map or in a listing with connection details such as frequency, shift, PL, etc.  Just go to http://web.rfinder.net, put in your location and radius.  Choose AVMap  and click export.  Then import the resulting file into AvMap GeoSat software on Windows or Mac and write it to your device.

The WWRD Supporting AvMap is just another step of making The World Wide Repeater Directory, it’s third party applications such as RT Systems and CHIRP and of course the RFinder family of programs on iPhone, Android and www, Ham Radio’s one-stop-shop for repeater data, no matter what the technology used for repeating radio signals.  AvMap APRS GPS was the next logical place for The World Wide Repeater Directory to be.

RFinder is available in the Apple App Store for iPhone and Android, the web version can be found at http://www.rfinder.net.
RT Systems radio programming software for Window is WWRD enabled and can be found at http://www.rtsystemsinc.com

RFinder – The World Wide Repeater Directory now supports DStar

RFinder – The World Wide Repeater Directory now supports DStar

Press Release

05/23/2012

From the QTH de W2CYK

For immediate release

After attending the DStar forum in Dayton, it became apparent that there was a lack of DStar repeater locating options to the vastly growing population of DStar users. We at RFinder The World Wide Repeater Directory feel that all repeaters world wide, coordinated or not, digital or analog, radio-linked or connected via Voice over IP should be in Ham Radio’s first and only truly geo-enabled international repeater directory.

We are pleased to announce that by 2300Z 5/24/2012 we will fully support DStar in the directory. Western Hemisphere data is already loaded and we intend to have Eastern Hemisphere loaded by the indicated time. Currently we are loading approximately once a week but we hope to have a more quasi-realtime feed loaded within a month.

The WWRD Supporting DStar is just another step of making The World Wide Repeater Directory, it’s third party applications such as RT Systems on Microsoft Windows and of course the RFinder family of programs on iPhone, Android and www. RFinder is Ham Radio’s one-stop-shop for repeater data, no matter what the technology used for repeating radio signals.

RFinder is available in the Apple App Store for iPhone and Android, the web version can be found at http://www.rfinder.net.

RT Systems radio programming software is WWRD enabled and can be found at http://www.rtsystemsinc.com

CHIRP is open source software information is at http://CHIRP.danplanet.com
