Repeater summer contest

Repeaters are often the easiest way to get connected with local clubs and hams. This summer we will be filling in missing repeaters across the world. What better way to contribute to ham radio during your summer travels?

One does not simply talk to people on repeaters There are more available repeaters than active amateur radio users

The mission:

  • Find active and working repeaters anywhere across the world.
  • Log in and add repeaters that are not already in the system on the app or website here.
  • Enjoy a more complete and useful repeater listing!
Corrections to current repeaters in comments are also considered one point (for example, commenting this repeater is down or is (X) tone now.)

Winners will be announced in September...:

  1. Recognition by name or callsign on the repeaters front page for the top repeater contributor.
  2. Recognition by name or callsign for the most GMRS region listings submitted. (Currently only Oregon is available).
  3. Recognition of most useful pull request/feature/app added for use of the repeaters/RepeaterSTART on Github.

Bands and modes: Any permanent repeater within ham radio bands is eligible to be submitted. Each addition of a verified working repeater is one point, any correction of removed or changed repeater (via a comment) will also be one point.


To participate in the contest, simply log in and add or comment on a repeater.

GMRS users, build and submit your csv to contact (at)
