    The 2017-2018 edition (46th ed) of the ARRL Repeater Directory[1]?, introduced in April, has sold out. Some ARRL publication dealers and online resellers[2] may have remaining copies of the current edition, which was the first edition to use data supplied from "crowdsourcing" technology. Crowdsourcing is a means of using data gathered from public resources. Data for the Repeater Directory was supplied by ARRL partner RFinder[3], the creator of a web- and app-based directory of Amateur Radio repeaters worldwide. RFinder's data is provided by users, repeater owners, and volunteer frequency coordinators.

    "This is a great milestone for the Repeater Directory," said ARRL Marketing Manager Bob Inderbitzen, NQ1R. "We know users still value having a printed, portable copy of the directory in-hand, and we've given them a better and more complete snap shot of the repeaters that are on the air."

    The 2017-2018 edition has 31,000+ listings - 10,000 more than the previous edition. Produced annually, The ARRL Repeater Directory? includes listings for Amateur Radio repeaters throughout the US and Canada, organized by state/province, city, and operating mode. Analog and digital repeater systems are included: FM, FUSION, D-STAR, DMR, NXDN, and P25 systems. The next edition will be introduced in 2018 (no additional details at this time).

    An annual subscription to RFinder[4] provides immediate access to its worldwide database of repeater frequencies and related data.
