Add the ARRL’s New Repeater Directory to Your List of Essential Books

Whether you’re a new ham just starting out on the VHF/UHF bands, an EMCOMM specialist, or a longtime mobile radio owner who likes to stay in contact on the road, you won’t want to be without the ARRL Repeater Directory® 2021 Edition.

This essential reference includes “crowdsourced” listings contributed by users, repeater owners, and volunteer frequency coordinators. This means more listings, updated more often. Want to be covered wherever you operate? Get copies for your vehicle, your base station, and your emergency Go-Kit. And if you have a friend or relative who’s just received their Technician Class license, the directory makes a great “welcome to the hobby” gift. The 6″ x 9″ spiral-bound reference lays flat for easy reading. The ARRL Repeater Directory, the world’s largest printed directory of repeater systems, includes:

  • Listings for U.S. and Canada, organized by state/province, city, and operating modes
  • Digital repeaters including FUSION, D-STAR, DMR, NXDN, and P25 systems
  • VHF/UHF and microwave band plans

Please Note: The repeater listings that appear in the ARRL Repeater Directory are provided by RFinder, Inc. If a repeater has been omitted, or if a listing is inaccurate, please report this directly to RFinder via the RFinder smartphone app, or on the web at
