The FEATURES program from XYLEM can extract any features that are annotated
in GenBank entries. In your case, you might run the program, extracting
any features with feature keys such as

repeat_unit                {extracts just the repeat unit itself}
repeat_region              {extracts the entire region containing repeats}

Only parts of each sequence that are annotated as repeats will be extracted.
The XYLEM programs run under Unix and can be obtained by anonyous FTP to
directory 'psgendb' at ftp.cc.umanitoba.ca
