RFinder (Repeater Finder), the premier Ham Radio repeater locating tool for Amateur Radio operators, allows you to find repeaters all over the world based on your current location or a specified location.

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

  • Terrible UI

    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

    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!!!

    RF Finder was a great app working very well. I had a problem with how the app found its location. I contacted I contacted the vender and the support was wonderful. The error was my mistake and the app is the best way to find repeaters.

    Have emailed customer support a few times. The filters do not work correctly I try to search for dstar and get DMR all the time I can't turn that filter off. Wish the arrl would go with RepeaterBook instead

    Dropped $12 on an app that according to "reviews" was great. Not my findings at all. One in six repeaters listed in my area were not accessible and some info was completely inaccurate compared to other resources. I can't count on this app at all. Wasted $12. One star for a pretty UI.
  • Fast customer support

  • Incomplete info and too expensive

    This app is competing with free sources of information - and sadly isn't as accurate or complete as those other sources. Save your money and use the well-known free sources of info.
  • Rapid response

    Have had rfinder for a while, needed to change the call and email associated with it. Sent an email and got a very quick response and on a Sunday. Very happy with rfinder.
