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



  • GPS errors

    By CaelikOfAzeroth
    I’d like to know why this app, which costs money, can’t seem to update my location and constantly gives GPS error messages while a competing app, which is free, updates with no problem. Location services are turned on but still refuses to refresh when I’m at a new location.
  • Changed from Broken to fixed

    By #>%|>^£
    I have to agree with recent reviews. The app works once then functions like menu are disabled until you close the app and reopen. Also, it’s not coming up with search results when I input a new location or even use my GPS location! I have the latest IOS for iPad and iPhone. If not fixed I will not be renewing. I loved having the app on my phone but not if it doesn’t work. I hope they read these comments or discover and fix this bug soon or they will lose many customers. UPDATE: I discovered the app was updated and fixed. I deleted it from my iPad and reinstalled it. First thing I noticed was my local repeaters appeared under the list where previously there was nothing. Then I entered a location using city/state and it gave me the Lat/Long. As soon as I selected ‘set location’ the app immediately closed. I reopened and the repeaters at the new location I entered appeared. It didn’t crash when I selected my GPS location and went to the repeater list. So it works but first closes after setting a new location. Disregard above comments. Seems to be working without crashing after entering a new location.
  • Good support response

    By vancelaw
    The coming of IOS12 disabled their specify a location function. I notified the support address and they got right on it. They kept me up to date on their progress and it was soon fixed. Very good app!
  • The app is broken, DO NOT BUY

    By Brumey
    I purchased the app after seeing it had an ARRL endorsement. I installed on a new iPhone XR and and year old iPad. After the install, it halts all functionality. Menu button does not work. You have to close the app, open it again, the menu button works one time and then everything freezes. This app should not be in the iOS App Store and not be endorsed by the ARRL. I have contacted the pusher (developer) and no joy. Trying to get a refund seems to be an uphill battle even though I only purchased it 2 days ago. The concept is good but look at the vendors website. The latest updates are from 2012. I’ll dispute the payment and move on to another app or use RR. I have many iOS apps, this is the worst. It also reminded me that getting a refund from Apple is a chore.
  • Worthless

    By Earnest W.
    I won’t be renewing subscription
  • Totally useless

    By AngryBirdNovice
    Lacks intuitive input
  • Crashes

    By hamguy1341
    While the web site works, the App crashes and does not provide search results.
  • Customer service is all but non existent

    By Sacco_KC1JPU
    For the first few weeks the app worked great and I was actually very happy with it. However, it eventually stopped working all together. I open the app and nothing appears in the list. I’ve tried messing with settings to get results in the list and nothing works. I reached out to the developer and after a few emails I finally got a response. They asked for screenshots but didn’t say of what. I screenshot everything and emailed all of the images and haven’t heard anything since. I downloaded “RepeaterBook” for free and I get almost everything I need right from there. I barely ever right these things, but I can’t help but to warn any potential subscribers of what they’re getting themselves into.
  • Inaccurate info, buggy app

    By wd9get
    I travel a lot, and I find a large number of the repeaters listed are non-functional. There’s much less info than in the ARRL-produced repeater directory. I’ve had several times where the program shows no repeaters at all that has required an un-install and reinstall to fix. Currently, the menu won’t open. All-in-all, a very poor substitute for the classic repeater directory.
  • Does not work.

    By Hcd123
    The program has my location correct, but sometimes it does show near by repeaters, other times it shows no repeater, and other time it shows repeaters that are a thousand miles away as 0.0 miles away. Bad investment is this app.
