There are many other repeaters in western Massachusetts, as well as in southern Vermont and New Hampshire. The M.A.R.C. Frequency List is online here as a Microsoft Word file and as a PDF file. This is a VHF/UHF channel guide to be used for emergency communications in Franklin County. It lists all local amateur radio repeater and simplex frequencies likely to be useful in emergencies.

There is also an online New England Repeater Directory with information on all New England repeaters on all bands. You can find directories of amateur radio repeaters for many other areas by searching on the Internet.
