Repeaterbook and RT systems entered into a partnership several years ago to open an API for importing Repeaterbook data directly into the RT Systems app. This means that anyone who owns a copy of the RT Systems software can choose parameters and import data directly into programming software.
There is no subscription required to access the Repeaterbook data from the software. The data import is absolutely free.
Alternatively, owners of RT Systems software can also conduct searches on the Repeaterbook.com website and export the search results into a file compatible with importing into the RT Systems programming software, regardless of the radio the application was intended for. Some users may require more advanced or customized search options that can only be conducted on the Repeaterbook.com website. This does require an intermediate step to save the file to your computer and then import it into the RT Systems application but improves flexibility.
The search results will open in a new tab. You can edit the list as you desire before writing the data to your radio. You can even use the copy commands to place some entries into another tab and create a more customized list or to add channels to an existing list. Please refer to the RT Systems documentation available with the software for more information.
Repeaterbook.com offers many more search options than what is currently offered within the RT Systems software. If you don't mind a little more work an effort, you may be able to produce a more customized list of channels to write to your radio.
To produce an export file, you must first conduct a search for repeaters on Repeaterbook.com. The following searches currently offer the option to export the results in an RT Systems file format:
Once you save the file to your computer, open the RT Systems Radio Programming software and follow these steps:
The repeater channels will display in a new tab within the RT Systems software.
