More Features For The Repeater Database

repeaterdatabaseI’ve been spending a bit more time on the repeater database. It’s evolved from a simple html table with data from various sources, to a full-blown database-driven system that supports user editing and has more features than you can shake a stick at lexapro anxiety. You might ask, “Are all these features necessary?” and the answer is no. I didn’t do this to try and compete with some ham radio repeater websites. I just did it to learn about databases, and to have some fun, while getting a useful list of repeaters in the area. The database now has a google map for every repeater, as well as websites, and other information in every entry. It’s probably overkill, but like I said, it was a learning experience.

Edit (2015): I’ve decided to stop maintaining a repeater database of my own because there are now several good worldwide databases¬†available with a large user base. The end result is a broad and high quality repeater database and it is available worldwide¬†online.

Washington State Repeater Database

My latest project has been to develop and easy-to-use repeater database for the state of Washington. It is currently filled with repeaters from across the state on bands from 10 meters up to 900 Mhz. I’m in the process of verifying all of this data which has been collected from various sources on the internet. Some of them are cited with a link, and some were not able to be confirmed. I need help doing this. If you’d like to lend some help by simply getting on the air and trying out the listed frequencies in you’re area, let me know! I’ll get you access to the database editor right away.
