The Cayman Amateur Radio Society (CARS) and RFinder are pleased to announce a new partnership agreement effective March 28, 2016. CARS has now joined as the latest Member Society of RFinder – the World Wide Repeater Directory.
CARS will be responsible for maintaining the very latest KY repeater data of the Cayman Islands for RFinder. Caymanian Radio Amateurs who subscribe will have access to the entire world's directory while supporting CARS.
RFinder is a steadily growing worldwide repeater directory which has over 60,000 repeaters in over 170 countries. An annual $9.99 USD 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 allows finding of repeaters over routes worldwide. One subscription gives 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 honoured to be partnered with CARS, providing the very latest repeater information and directory technology for Amateurs in the Cayman Islands.
“We look forward to working with CARS to make the directory even better for Cayman Amateurs and visitors to the Cayman Islands. We are excited and proud to announce our partnership with CARS.
