Motorola Radio Repeaters
What is a Radio Repeater?
A repeater is a device that links two radio operators together to cover a larger communication area or allow better in-building coverage. It works by receiving a frequency from two-way radios and retransmitting them in real-time to the others radios on the channel or talk group. Repeaters operate at higher power than typical for portable and mobile radios enabling it to broadcast to a much broader range further distance.
Repeaters also require additional infrastructure to set up properly. Some examples are base station antenna, duplexer or multicoupler, racking and storage, & low loss coax cable. In some cases you will also need to locate your repeater at a tower location to tall building to allow for the best coverage possible.
