I have had a check of the archives sussing an answer to no avail.
Q1. Repeater stations are there to extend the range of UHF coverage, Yes ?
Q2. Do/could repeater stations communicate on and on, ad infinitum, say across Australia if needed ?
Q3. Why do you necessarily call a repeater by call sign, for what purpose ?
Q4. If you were seeking assistance (lost, breakdown etc) would a repeater automatically relay your signal over a wider area of coverage.
Q5. Can you contact a repeater station without knowing their call sign ?
Q6. Do they use specific UHF channels ?
Q7. Is there a WWW that has these and many other answers ?

Q1 - yes
2 - yes, but would double cost of each repeater, need permission of all owners, and would bleep everyone off because there would be signals coming from everywhere, all the time. Especially while people insist on using repeater input channels.
3 - this is a new one to me, the reptr call sign is only for registration purposes, and indentification. That voice is a recorded one.
4 - Same as 1
5 - yes, you only need to be on the rptr channel, with radio on duplex.
6 - Channels 1 - 8
7 - Yes, this site has a list, there is another too.

For emergencies you should try channel 5 duplex first, however this channel should not be used for "chit chat" as some ignorant people do as it is the designated emergency channel.
