some repeaters may NOT be on the list, if no one has reported them as on the air and active ??

 Idaho Repeater's   
Also , how about a map   see https://lndom.net/rpete/RepeaterDB.php  Produced by Lisa AK7WS in Idaho.
 

A heads up:  there are all sorts of web pages listing repeaters,  one in particular, the "repeaterbook.com"   TOTALLY USELESS  !!
in fact most online (out of state) repeater lists are useless. 
 

                                                 PARC repeater maintenance is paid for with membership dues.  If you are a regular on the 06 or 36 repeater, you might consider joining our club ??  Thanks

A BIT OF HISTORY
The PARC 06 repeater was originally installed on Mt Kinport in 1976, in a building
that was eventually bulldozed about 25 years ago,  we were ask to move into a building that was
at that time owned by the cable TV company.

how many repeaters do you think were in Idaho in 1977 ?

Pocatello must have missed the cut off date for publication of this book.
