The purpose of this website is to collect Ham Radio Repeater information for repeaters located in Canada and the US. Each day the information will be combined and made available for public download.
This website will create a GPS import file that contains all of the repeaters in its database. Once loaded into your GPS,
you will be able to see the repeaters nearest to you (where ever you might be) without needing to look them up in a book.

How was the information obtained?
