There are 44 repeaters in 146 MHZ showing on APRS
There are 50 repeaters in 147 MHz showing on APRS
There are 36 repeaters in 145 MHz showing on APRS
There are over 1100 APRS digipeaters. So there are still hundreds of APRS digis that need updating to add their local Voice Repeater BText. You can see progress on FINDU:
for example will show you all the repeaters in the 146 range. As you prepare to add your local repeater to your local DIGI's BText, you should check the frequency first with FINDU and make sure that your chosen X character or XY has not already been taken.
Then choose a -XY or +XY to make your object unique. Or for 5 KHz repeaters. chose the single +X or -X.
Of the 10,000 repeaters in the ARRL repeater directory, the only ones we want to see on APRS are the ones that are recommended for travelers and visitors and where you have a reasonable chance of finding someone.
Lets get going on this... It's travel time!
