It allows sorting by distance or by Trustee callsign as well as filtering by band and radius in miles or kilometers. NOW RFinder Routing is integrated with RT Systems radio programmers!

Click File-External Data->RFinder Web Search and click Route!

You can also let your friends on Facebook® know what repeater you are on as well as your Twitter® followers, when checking in. NOW INTEGRATED WITH THE EchoLink APP!! From the repeater detail screen, any repeater that has an Echolink node attached just touch the number and if you have the EchoLink app installed it will launch to that node automatically for you. 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.... Each purchase of a new platform advances your annual to a year from that new purchase date. Sub 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 for Amateur Radio (Ham Radio) 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 Amateur Radio repeaters from their countries we would love to incorporate that into our database. Worldwide IRLP and Echolink nodes. © ITWeRKS 2011

RFinder World Wide Repeater Directory App Reviews

  • Not sure it’s worth the money

    By jammerx19
    I travel a bit and the repeater list here never seems to be accurate. It shows repeaters that aren’t operational any more and quite often is missing details like PL tones.
  • Confusing interface, inaccurate listings, bugs never fixed

    By ggmpd
    The ARRL obviously never tested this app before choosing it as its official repeater directory. The database is inaccurate, with repeaters from states over a thousand miles away showing up as my “nearest repeaters”. The interface essentially doesn’t work right - searching for a location and then setting it as the current location for the list rarely works. Setting the selection switches for repeater type rarely works. This app needs to be removed from the app store until they get it right - that alone would save potential users literally hours of frustration....
  • Great app

    By Tncavedvr
    Easy to use with the most complete list of repeaters I have found! They stand by their product with great support if needed!
  • Needs updated graphics for iPhone X

    By Brian W1
    The data is fine, but the letterboxed display looks bad on the iPhone X. Update your graphics!
  • Frustrating

    By Jkhhhh
    I downloaded the app, it does not work for me. Crashes everytime I try to load a database. I tried to override the location but that crashed also. I do have the latest version of the apple software. I was hoping it worked. Frustrated.
  • Worse than ArtSciPub

    By radiowavez
    Shame on ARRL for pushing this. Repeater listing accuracy is less than 10%. And they spam your inbox with ads for their DMR junkphone.
  • Poor support

    By Mollie9999
    Purchased on recommendation of ARRL. Downloaded and registered. Error says incorrect password. Emailed help - W2CYK - no response in past 3days and still does not work. Poor App with poor support.
  • Terrible UI

    By Unreal timer5
    Difficult to use. Gives poor results. Can't believe these guys were given the monopoly on repeater data. Waist of money. Back to looking up in a book
  • Not quite as advertised

    By T.Beagle
    While this app can serve as a repeater reference, functionality is identical, and no better than some competing free apps. Search functionality does not work against current filter selection. Filtering cannot be sequentially applied to allow drilling down to a small list of repeaters. Call sign search does not apply to current repeater list, but external website. Distance filtering zeros out values when using offline database, even when using "last known position". Filter and search makes calls to external database & website even after continental database is downloaded. Constantly giving GPS error messages when using downloaded database. Why is this $13?
  • Essential tool for all Hams!!!

    By Eric9721
    By far the best and most user friendly app made by a ham for hams!!!! Awesome tool!!!
