The repeater database is updated constantly.

Submitted updates are usually uploaded within 24 hours.
Yes, we would like to add every state and province.
Information is added somewhat slowly because the accuracy of the database is very important to us. If you are interested in lending a hand, either submit repeater information to us or apply to become a site admin.
Eventually, more states and provinces will be enterd, but in a very slow and methodical process. This database is no good if the information in it is bad.
When we obtain a repeater listing, we conduct a thorough search of the Internet for all available information on that repeater. Many times a repeater sponsor will post a lot of information on a Web site that is beneficial to the Ham community. We collect that data and provide it for you here.
First, conduct a search for the repeater in the database through the state or province it should be located in. If the search results do not incldue the repeater, select the 'Submit Repeater' link in the blue menu bar near the top of the page. A notification of the request will add the repeeater to the database. You will be notified when this happens. Most of the time, updates are completed within 24 hours.
