I am looking for a reference list of the default repeater offsets by frequency and country on the 70cm band, to supply it into a radio control software. Most radios come with a list built-in, but the respective data is hard to collect.

There is an US repeater offset list, that lists +-5MHz for the 440MHz range, but I know from Germany at least that +-7.6MHz are used.

I know that a repeater operator may divert from the defaults, but most are following them and it is sane to provide them as the default radio configuration.

What repeater shifts are used by default on 70cm in different countries?

Update: Please provide the start frequency, end frequency and according shift where possible.

    $\begingroup$ If you end up collecting a list from various sources, could you maybe publish it on Github as a machine-readable file of some sort? YAML, XML, JSON, CSV, whatever, as long as it can be converted to other formats and code. I'm sure it'd be useful for others! $\endgroup$ – oh7lzb Dec 2 '13 at 6:50

    $\begingroup$ Sure, can do. What about "start-frequency, end-frequency, shift"? $\endgroup$ – Georg DO1GL Dec 2 '13 at 15:43

    $\begingroup$ I think an exhaustive list of the offsets everywhere in the world is too broad for a single question. The difficulty in obtaining such is probably why you are unable to find it: no one has been sufficiently compensated to do it. $\endgroup$ – Phil Frost - W8II Dec 2 '13 at 18:41
  • $\begingroup$ I'm inclined to agree with @PhilFrost here - StackOverflow isn't really designed for acquiring exhaustive lists. $\endgroup$ – Amber Dec 3 '13 at 5:45
  • $\begingroup$ I had hoped that SO karma would provide some compensation for a possible author. Even though SO is not designed for acquiring lists (which is an SO issue), I hoped to get some answers together and maybe create one table that can be edited later on. $\endgroup$ – Georg DO1GL Dec 3 '13 at 9:08

In Argentina and the USA, the offset for 70cm repeaters is +- 5.0 MHz.

In Slovenia (S5) the offset for 70cm repeaters is -7.6 MHz.
