Back to Home   Contacting the Authors, Web Site Maintainers, etc.    



Information on this web site, its index pages, and most of the articles, are written, compiled, and maintained by several dedicated people. If you have questions and/or comments related to an individual article's subject, try contacting the author of that article first; if that fails try one of the people below. Suggestions for new articles and material you wish to donate and have posted, can be directed to a responsible person at one of the e-mail addresses below. All of these folks are webmasters and authors and can help get an article published on Repeater-Builder. Every index page also lists a maintainer, who adds and updates information on the page. This doesn't necessarily mean that person knows anything about that make/model. Don't be shy. Share your knowledge, experience, and expertise with others.

Many authors and all of the people listed below will reply to your e-mail in a timely fashion, either to respond to your question or ask for further clarification or information. However, as frustrating as it is for you NOT to get a reply, it's even more frustrating for one of us when we take the time to compose a reply only to have it get bounced back by your e-mail service because of some anti-spam requirement to pre-register our e-mail addresses. If you write to one of us, please make sure your e-mail system will accept a reply from the same person.

If you have general repeater or equipment-related questions about topics or issues not mentioned on this web site, there are other, more responsive venues available, such as Yahoo and Google groups. Also, do a little bit of web searching on your own before you ask an author for help. Many questions can be answered a lot quicker if you do some research first, and often the information you need is in another file or article already on this site.

Any requests for radio programming software (i.e. GE software, Johnson software, Kenwood KPG software, Motorola Radio Service Software or RSS, etc.), or where to download any radio programming software will be ignored!

The e-mail addresses below have purposely been disguised to make it hard for spammers and web crawlers to detect them. You must manually correct it as you type it into the "To:" line of your e-mail program. Make sure you include a descriptive subject in your message; some spam filters will blindly toss e-mail with a blank subject line.

We welcome file submissions, however please send files or notifications ONLY to the person listed at the top of the page as the Page Maintainer. DO NOT send the same message to every email address you can find, as it just causes confusion. It's like pressing an elevator "call" button; once you've pressed it, multiple presses won't make the elevator arrive any quicker.

People persist in sending spam e-mails to us. When these are identified, the sender's e-mail address is added to filters that simply delete all future e-mail received from that entity. The list is never cleared, so once you've been added to it, we'll never be bothered by you again, even for legitimate reasons.

Just because he owns the site, don't assume that he has created or maintains each and every page on the site, or has knowledge of every radio or product referenced in this site. This includes knobs of Bendix - King radios.

If you have questions about a particular page, there is usually a reference to who created and or maintains it. Please contact the person listed at the top of that page to insure an accurate and timely response.

Scott Zimmerman N3XCC: his-callsign // at // repeater-builder // dot // com

Areas of expertise: Expert at nothing, but fairly proficient in most areas of two-way radio and general electronics knowledge.

Robert Meister WA1MIK: his-callsign // at // comcast // dot // net

Just because he maintains most of the pages on this site, don't assume that he has any knowledge of the equipment mentioned on those pages. This means he knows nothing about Quantars or Quantros.

Areas of expertise: Motorola 1980s and 1990s synthesized radio products such as: MSF/PURC, Nucleus, GTX, Spectra, MaxTrac, Radius, SM50/SM120, MaraTrac; MICOR and SpectraTAC receivers; CAT200B repeater controllers. He also maintains a lot of pages on this web site, but that doesn't mean he has any other knowledge about the equipment covered on those pages.

Articles written by others: see the bottom of the article page.

Most of the articles written by other authors have contact information in them. For those that don't, try looking up the author's callsign on www.qrz.com, or Google the callsign. Amateur radio operators typically put a slash through their zeros; if the callsign in the article contains a Ø you will have to replace it with the digit zero when you search for it.
