The 6M band repeater offsets imported by CHIRP from Repeater Book data base for southern California show -1.0Mhz when presented in the CHIRP page.
The actual offset for all repeaters in SoCal is -0.5Mhz.
I verified that the actual Repeater Book website (repeaterbook.com) does correctly list the offsets at -0.5Mhz.

If you download the data directly from RepeaterBook, skipping Chirp, is it correct? Try this link:


It looks to me like Chirp is interpreting the data exactly as it is given by RepeaterBook, which leaves no bug to fix in Chirp.

Thanks Tom. Perhaps the problem is in Repeater Book? When I view the repeater book website page the offsets are correct for the 34 repeaters in the Los Angeles area or -0.5 Mhz (see attached screen shot). When I export this same page seen in the screen shot as a .csv the export now shows a 1.6 Mhz offset for all 34 repeaters, completely incorrect. What can we do to fix it?

I'm unsure - can we close this ticket? Is it a RepeaterBook site issue? Thanks.

Closing, as it appears to be an issue on the side of RepeaterBook.
