I stumbled across a method to map HAM radio repeaters into Gaia and thought I should share the info. If you go to Repeater Book and as in my case select a Province (State for the southern folks) then select 2m for example you get a list of repeaters in the province. If you select the option to map the results it asks you to choose Google Earth or Google Maps. I chose Google Earth and it gives me a KML file to download. I went into Gaia and imported the KML from Repeater Book and bam all the repeaters in my Province appeared on the map. Added bonus is in all the waypoint notes are the frequency and offset information. Not all repeater locations are accurate of course but close enough we should be able to use them. Perhaps HAM repeaters should become a map in Gaia but for now this simple hack works really well.
