I don't know if this has been done before, but I developed an Excel spreadsheet to convert the repeater locations listed on this site, to a CSV file that can be imported in to oziexplorer. If anyone would like a copy, let me know. Cheers. Andrew O.

Already been done a long time ago. The file should still be in the files section of the yahoo ozi group you mention.

Ozi & Ray,

Thanks to Andrew's work I have now created a download option directly on the UHF Repeaters page. This will allow download directly of the currently active data in the ExplorOz database to your PC for use in OziExplorer. This means that as repeaters are changed or added to ExplorOz you have the ability to download the latest files at any time.

From the UHF Repeaters Index select your state or all and select the download option at the top.

Andrew has been given free membership for his efforts in the project.

Just shows everyone that we can add these features very quickly if you tell us (finished 4 hours after original post).

Regards
David

Andrew,

Well done. I was looking to do the same myself - you've saved me a job!!

Perhaps David or Michelle could put it on the site for an easy download?

If not, send me a copy to skte.jeffers@bigpond.com

Thanks in advance.

Stephen J.

Andrew,

Please send us a copy as I would love to have a look at what you have done. I have be working on actually adding all of the UHF repesters to the .map files as map comments/permenant waypoints for the NatMap and Hema GDT CD's. I was going to make these available for a couple of bucks in the Adenture Shop. This is a huge task as each map file needs to be modified and on NatMap this is some hundreds of files. For the GDT it is not so bad.

As mentioned I would like to see your file as I have created a similiar file already but was not really happy with the way the waypoints needed to be loaded over/into your already created waypoint files.

Good job
David

I have now put the file in the forum mentioned by oziexplorer, under the waypoints directory, and emailed those who supplied their address.

David, I can see what you are doing is alot of work. One question though with the points in the map file, can they be uploaded to the GPS? My approach is to plan the trip, then at the end, add the repeater waypoints, one state at a time, removing those not near the general route. This super waypoint file is then loaded to my GPS, together with the routes and tracks. Then its just a case of "joining the dots" in the car.
Cheers
Andrew

Andrew,

You have the option to make them waypoints or just map features. This will allow you to only select the UHF repeaters that you actually want to go to the GPS and still have all the others shown on the page.
