i didn't see anything with a quick look through the section, so here are a couple of resources for finding local repeaters.
a source for finding local repeaters.
http://www.levinecentral.com/repeaters/ ... stance.php

you put in any address, city & state or zip, and it will show you where repeaters are, and basic information about them.

another source that lists repeaters by state
http://www.artscipub.com/repeaters/

Just gave the first link a try and I'm wondering where they get their info from as it's seriously outdated regarding repeaters in my area. The locations shown were accurate as of 5-6 years ago, but aren't any longer, PL tones (where listed) have all changed, a few listed are no longer on the air, and some newer (last 2-3 years) repeaters have no entries at all.

That's my AO though. Someone else may have better results in their AO.

there were a lot of differences in the information the two sights have for my area as well. i haven't been doing thins long enough to know what is active / correct and what isn't.

Have you tried searching for "races ares repeaters (insert state here)" I found the Indiana Repeater Council's Directory for example.

Most state repeater coordination groups will publish a directory every year or every other year. That's your best bet.

Not unusual for'harvested' information. Even the ARRL Repeater directory has a tendency to be out of date. In large part because inclusion is voluntary. There are also a lot of 'paper repeaters' that are listed but not currently in service for a number of reasons - down completely, down for repair & the owner can't get up the $$/gumption/time to repair it, etc, etc.

A much better source is the local or regional coordinating body. In the Southeast it's SERA, South Eastern Repeater Association (http://www.sera.org). This covers VA, NC, SC, GA, WV, KY, MS, & TN. You don't have to own a ham repeater to join SERA, you can join as an associate member and get their quarterly Journal which includes listings for all bands.

If you want to put up a repeater in any region with a coordinating body you really need to go thru the coordinating group in order to get protection from interference from co- and adjacent channel repeaters. They have guidelines for how close you can have repeaters, etc. If you put up a repeater without coordinating properly the onus is on you to mitigate and you'll have very little protection if and when the FCC cites you for willful interference.

I've found it to be up to date.
