New Linked Repeater Map

Finding a linked repeater in Newfoundland is now much easier, thanks to a new interactive map on our website.

Repeater Map Sample

This will be particularly useful to tourists or those unfamiliar with Newfoundland geography. Rather than a text list, you can now use this Google Map to explore and see all local repeaters on the linked system. These VHF repeaters are linked to each other, and generally, have the most activity since people can talk from all over the island.

The interactive map can be found on our Repeaters page: https://sonra.ca/en/repeater-directory/

We may someday have every repeater in the province, and other things like APRS, etc, listed. It is a time-consuming process, so we’ve started with what will benefit the highest number of people!
