Welcome to www.iz8wnh.it!
The website maps the distribution of ham radio repeaters and beacons in HF and V/U/SHF, both in Italy and in the world.
Download result sets in CSV format to program RTX memories, using CHIRP or any programming software for your radio model. If your RTX is not listed below, please contact me. Help me improve data precision by inserting new repeaters or amending data by filling in the form HERE.
For further information, please read the user guide carefully.

Think about a small donation to support the project expenses. We will be very grateful.

DATA VALIDATION

  • Database has been created on information available from official Radio Club websites as well as from SysOps, local Managers and users; then, further information have been provided by official directories for digital systems like C4FM, BrandMesister, DMR-Italia, D-Star and EchoLink and, as the very last choice, from IK2ANE's spreadsheet file.
    Each new record, or update, has been validated by independent searches.
  • Updates later than 2016-12-29 provide more reliable information about repeaters and beacons.


MAP

  • The map works correctly if you set at least one filter among "Country", "State/Region", "County", "Type" or "Band".
    While homepage is loading, "State/Region" and "County" filters look empty: "State/Region" will populate automatically based on Countries you have chosen; consequently, "County" will populate based on States/Regions you have chosen.
  • Combine filters as you wish. Multiple selections are allowed for all filters: the more filters you use, the more selective resultsets are.
  • Repeaters are identified by icons (Markers). Click on a Marker on the map to access to repeater's data.
  • Close Markers are clustered and shown as colored circles (Marker Clusters): the number on the cluster indicates the number of repeaters that have been grouped in. To expand a Marker Cluster, simply click on it.
  • NOTICE: Markers DO NOT represent the exact repeater geolocalisation. Lat and Lng values could be purely approximative. IZ8WNH Andrea is not responsible for any improper use of geolocalisation data.
  • WARNING: data retrieved by filters could be up-to-date or repeaters could be temporarily switched off.
  • Agreeing to geolocalisation, a special red marker on the map will show your position relative to repeater ones.
  • By clicking on any point on the map, you will get both WWLocator and coordinates.


DATA TABLE

  • Data table shows resultsets in plain-text: it pops up and updates automatically after each search.
  • You can sort data in alphabetical, ascending or descending order, by clicking on arrows next to table headers.
  • You can further filter resultsets by typing partial text in the searchbox.
  • Data can be printed out by clicking on "PRINT" button as well as saved as PDF file by clicking on "PDF" button.


DATA DOWNLOAD AS CSV FILE

  • Recordsets can be exported as CSV file(s). CSV files allow you to program RTX memories using CHIRP or the software provided with your radio. Select your RTX model from the dropdown menu to automatically download the pre-formatted CSV file.
  • Each CSV file is accompanied by a text file ("Readme.txt") containing information about how to import data in programming softwares. Where available, it also provides a link to YouTube to watch a practical video demonstration.
  • Always download data consistent with your radio frequency ranges. It is totally useless to download data of 29MHz, 50MHz and ATV repeaters if you have got a VHF-UHF transceiver! Programming software will never digest that CSV file, thus generating an error. Please, always run very selective queries setting up bands allowed for your RTX.
  • Whether your RTX is not listed in the dropdown menu, please contact me.

bio

IZ8WNH

Born in 1979, native from Davoli (a small town in Catanzaro-shire), MS and PhD in Chemistry, I work as a Medicinal Chemistry Researcher in an italian pharmaceutical company in Parma. I travelled a lot for study (Cosenza, Ferrara) and work (Siena, Genova, Oxford, Parma).
The passion for ham radio was born in 1993, when my school-buddy let me know the Citizen Band. I got my first CB station in 1996 and I was on the air until 1999. After more than 10 years of break, suddenly the fire for short waves relighted in 2010 during a Civil Protection training organised by Pubblica Assistenza of Siena, where ham radio operators were invited to take part. Self-taught, I got licenced in November 2011 (in 2014 I got licenced in UK as well, with the callsign M0WNH). Then, friends from ARI Genova asked me for managing the WAIL – Worked All Italian Lighthouses Award, currently being the Award Manager. For the first time in my life I learnt programming in PHP, HTML, MySQL, CSS and JavaScript and built up the brand-new and fully automated WAIL website. From this important experience, I have conceived the first, open-access interactive map on italian and worldwide repeaters.
Since December 2017 I am Vice-President of ARI Parma Radio Club apponted as Treasurer, WebMaster and librarian.
