Over 50,000 repeaters and growing in 178 countries! Now the Official Repeater Directory of Canada!

RFinder (Repeater Finder), the premier Ham Radio repeater locating tool for Amateur Radio operators, allows you to find repeaters all over the world based on your current location or a specified location. It allows sorting by distance or by Trustee callsign as well as filtering by band and radius in miles or kilometers.

Social functions! Let other hams know you are on a repeater through RFinder AND APRS (optional)! Find an EchoLink node in RFinder and call it with one click via EchoLink! Automatic data updates as you move!

Repeater Finder (RFinder) taps into The World Wide Repeater Directory, including IRLP and EchoLink information.

Our repeater locator database is growing daily.

Access to the Directory is included for one year then it will be an annual subscription for $9.99, and your subscription works for all platforms...Android, iPhone/iPad/iPod, www.RTSYSTEMSINC.com and chirp.dansplanet.org radio programmers, as well as web.rfinder.net. Each purchase of a new platform advances your annual to a year from that new purchase date. Windows Phone is coming!

If we do not have your repeaters listed...please do not refund or give us a bad rating...add repeaters at http://add.rfinder.net or request an add or update from the app.. Don't forget LAT/LON (in decimal), use periods as decimals, please.

The application accesses our Worldwide Repeater Directory and scanner directory but only stores information for repeaters within approximately 80 miles (125 km) from your location on your handheld at any one time, saving you room on your device and allowing distance calculation and mapping features to operate smoothly. It uses geolocation either via cell tower triangulation, GPS or manual location entry (so you can look up the repeaters you will use on vacation or business trips, etc.).

If anyone has lists of repeaters from their countries we would love to incorporate that into our database.

Worldwide IRLP and Echolink nodes.

We support Android 1.6 and above!

Very useful, works well, easily worth $10/year I especially like the map feature - shows my location and the listed repeaters, so I can tell what's ahead and concentrate on them. The distance limit is useful in keeping the list managable. I also use the RT Systems integration to program my radios. It presents a separate RT list to pick from and copy into the radio's main list. My main "complaint" is the same thing that affects every repeater database, including ARRL's: lots of repeaters listed that aren't on the air. Some may have just blown a fuse yesterday and will be back this afternoon, but many have been off the air for years. RFinder asks for updates, but qualifying the person sending information is difficult. The ARRL accepts information only from their listed frequency coordinators, but the coordinator's lists have lots of bad data, so the ARRL's directory does, too. The root of the problem is repeater owners who don't want to report that a machine is down (and will stay down for a long time) because they don't want to lose their frequency coordination. So they lie, and the coordinators don't have the time and resources to police it all. So if something doesn't key up, move to another repeater.

RFinder Best repeater app there is. While travelling cross country in our rv, I send the results to my computer and upload the information to my Kenwood v71. Could not be easier.

Fantastic app. Great data on repeaters in the area. I use it when I travel. Much more convenient than carrying a book. Also can search for a call sign and find out who it belongs to.
