It worked fine at first, then when i was building a new Frequency list, all of a sudden the downloaded offset data from RepeaterBook site were all wrong! Examp: For a 2 meter Frequency it should be a offset of 0.600000, instead i get a offset of 144.770000 on all of the downloaded 2 meter frequency's. On downloaded 70 meter i should get a offset of 5.000000, instead i get all kinds of different offset numbers. Examp: 449.725000 and 447.900000 Please help!! Thanks!

I am also seeing strange data from RepeaterBook. Most stations show an offset frequency of zero, even though offset type is "+". Some stations show strange offsets instead, such as 300kHz.
Clicking on the "Duplex" field and selecting the same offset that's shown updates the offset frequency to the correct one.
There are also duplicate "(None)" items in the offset dropdown menu.

I noticed this too and contacted RepeaterBook about the offset issue. As of Aug 4, it should be fixed.
