Welcome on www.iz8wnh.it!
This page maps the distribution of italian ham radio repeaters and beacons.
Select places of your interest and data will be shown on the map and, on demand, in table. Then, download retrieved data for programming your RTX memories using CHIRP (independently of radio maker and model) or ADMS for Yaesu radios.

Surf the map from any device (desktop, laptop, smartphone, tablet) and most frequently used browsers, like IE/Edge, FireFox, Chrome and Opera! Copy the website address and paste it in your personal page. To insert new data or amend existing ones, please fill in this form.

INSTRUCTIONS

 

MAP USAGE

  • The map works using up to 4 filters: "Region", "County", "Type" and "Band".
  • Select more options within the same filter (multiple selection) with the only exception for "Band" filter.
    Example: "Emilia Romagna + Toscana + Basilicata" in "Region" or "Milano + Ancona + Salerno + Palermo" in "County" or "C4FM + DMR + DS" in "Type". In "Band" filter, select one option only.
  • Combine more than one filter, with multiple selections as well: the result is the intersection of data.
    Example: "Region + Type" (Abruzzo + Campania + Analogic + DS), or "County + Type" (Belluno + Campobasso + DS + EL) etc.
  • Combining too many filters at the same time could be useless.
    Example: "Abruzzo + Caserta + Analogic" retrieves an empty set (because Caserta doesn't belong to Abruzzo Region), while "Abruzzo + Chieti + C4FM" is meaningful but it is equivalent to "Chieti + C4FM" filters.
  • Repeaters are identified with icons (Markers). Hover over a marker on the map to access data.
  • Very close markers are clustered and shown as colored circles (marker clusters): the number on the cluster indicates how many repeaters have been grouped in. To expand the marker cluster, click on it.
  • Markers are shown based on the repeater typology; a legend below the map helps you to identify them.
  • NOTICE: markers DO NOT represent the exact geolocalisation of repeaters. Lat and long values are purely approximative. IZ8WNH Andrea is not responsible for any improper use of geolocalisation data.
  • WARNING: data retrieved by the map could be up-to-date or repeaters could be temporarily switched off.
  • Updates after 29/12/2016 provide reliable information about repeaters and beacons.



TABLE USAGE

  • A table shows the recordset retrieved from filtration; it shows up on demand by clicking on "SHOW/UPDATE TABLE" button.
  • You can sort data in alphabetical and/or in ascending/descending order, by clicking on arrows next to table headers.
  • Recordset must be manually updated at every new search. Click on "SHOW/UPDATE TABLE" button to update data.
  • Data in table can be printed out by clicking on "PRINT" button or saved as PDF file by clicking on "PDF".



DATA DOWNLOAD

  • You can export recordsets in CSV format to program your device's memories using CHIRP. The list of radios supported by CHIRP is available here.
  • Whether CHIRP doesn't support your transceiver, please contact me.


ABOUT ME

Born in 1979, native from Davoli (a small town in Catanzaro-shire), MS and PhD in Chemistry, I am a researcher in a big italian pharmaceutical company in Parma. I have travelled a lot both for study (Cosenza, Ferrara) and work (Siena, Genova, Oxford, Parma).

My passion for ham radio got started in 1993, when my school-buddy let me know the CB. I got my first RTX station 3 years later and I was on the air over the following 3 years. After more than 10 years of inactivity the fire for radios suddenly relighted once again. Self-taught, I got licenced in November 2011. Since then friends from ARI Genova have asked me for managing the WAIL - Italian Lighthouses Award, currently being the Award Manager. For the first time in life I learnt programming languages like PHP, HTML, MySQL, CSS, JavaScript and built up the brand-new and fully automated WAIL website. From such important experience in programming, I have conceived the first, open-access interactive map on italian repeaters.
