Lets try this, I don't know about y'all, but the repeater listings that are out there leave a lot to be desired as far as  up to date and right.  How about we give  the top three or four 2m or 70cm repeater freqs from whatever area you are in , at least  we will know those work if we are on a trip and happen to be in your area.
Corpus Christi,(South Texas Amateur Radio Club, STARC) main 2m located in Petronilla,NW of CC covers a pretty large area . 146.82 -  107.2,  CC  SW Lynx/SaltGrass  146.840 - 162.2,  Refugio, good coverage on US 77 from S of Victoria to South of CC 147.180 + 136.5, Rockport, 147.260 + 103.5,  Taft/Odem, 444.800 + 114.8

It slows down during the summer.  I have a new job that puts me on the road 2-3 weeks each months which takes me away from promoting via newsletters.

If you ahve any ideas I am open to them.
