Hello, what is he difference between these sites? They basically look the same, but some of the repeaters on one site are not listed on the others. Thanks for the help!

In general terms, it is at the discretion of repeater system owners to list their equipment in any such web location that they choose and to maintain up to date details as posted in the various databases. Since it is the owner's responsibility to maintain up to date details or to remove any listings that are no longer active, the databases are only as good as the information the owners supply or delete.

Oddly enough, clicking Forums on the RepeaterFinder.com landing pages links directly here (forums.mygmrs.com). And, I am able to actually login to RadioReference.com using my MyGmrs credentials.

 

So, my conclusion is they are two interfaces to to the same site.  As to why the data would be different...

Yeah, I noticed that about the forums link. That's why I deleted my post. Seems to me that I got miffed about that in the past thinking it was a different owner but I CRS these days. lol

I would assume myGMRS.com and RepeaterFinder.com are related - Rich's LinkedIn page lists him as the owner of Repeater Finder, LLC, a "Two-way radio directory startup for FCC-licensed individuals in the United States."

Funny enough, I vaguely remember learning that a while back. I'll probably forget it a few more times in the coming years and go on the same rant again. Eventually, it will save in my brain matter. lol

I tried to register in to Repeater Finder and couldn't. Turns out my login for this site got me in, seems to be same data, I can't edit mine, but yeah...I was confused too!

 

Added: I just noticed the DB at RF seems to be behind. I had removed something from the DB here a while back, but it is still on the RF site. I added a new one today, I'll see how long it takes to show up over there.

Why do some repeaters listed on "Repeater Finder" and not listed on "MyGMRS"? There is one repeater not listed on mygmrs but listed on repeater finder. My repeater is listed both sites. Information changed on MyGmrs changes on the other. Just asking.

Thanks

Repeater Finder is a project Rich has been working on, its data comes from MyGMRS.
