From W2CYK at the RFinder Labs in NY
RFinder's Japan data now in both Japanese and English
RFinder has been localized in Japanese for years now, as well as English, Spanish, Italian, German and French, but we just reloaded the system with the official JARL analog repeater list localized both in English and Japanese. DStar and EchoLink machines are refreshed automatically and regularly but are in English only...that is how they are managed by their respective communities.
RFinder has the only known source of geo-enabled (including lat/lon) repeater data for Japanese machines. RFinder is also the only known source of analog Japanese machines listed in English. There are almost 2000 machines in the Japanese archipelago.
Users now will see analog repeaters listed for machines 430mhz and above (JP doesn't have 2m repeaters) alternating in both English and Japanese. We will add a function to show either or both in a future RFinder release on Android and iOS.
RFinder is a steadily growing worldwide repeater directory which has over 50.000 repeaters in over 170 countries. Annual ~1200JPY ($9.99US) subscription to RFinder provides access to repeater data through its collections of Apps on Android and iPhone, RadioBuddy on iPhone, web, RT Systems and CHIRP radio programmers. RFinder's new feature of repeater routing (http://routes.rfinder.net) allows finding of repeaters over routes worldwide. One subscription, access to repeater data worldwide, from any computing device on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iPhone and popular GPS systems. Real-time radio programming on Android and iPhone is provided by the open source RFinderPi, which is based on the Raspberry Pi. RFinder is tightly integrated with EchoLink both on Android and iPhone, providing one-click connection to repeaters worldwide from the directory!
The RFinder team is excited to provide these enhancements for Japanese users. We look forward to working with the Japanese Ham community to make RFinder even more useful and relevant for the Japanese Amateur. "This has been the most requested feature from our Japanese users. It was quite a challenge, but one we are proud to deliver," says Bob Greenberg, W2CYK, creator of RFinder - The World Wide Repeater Directory.
