Radio Repeaters for Business Radios
A radio repeater is a specialized two-way radio designed to increase the communication range of a radio system. It receives signals on one frequency and transmits them at a higher power on another frequency simultaneously, acting as a "relay station" boosting the power of the signal when it re-transmits. Repeaters are usually placed in high locations such as mountain tops, the tops of buildings, or installed on towers, this is done to further increase their range.
Types of Two-Way Radio Repeaters
|• Same Band Repeaters||Operate on the same frequency band (i.e.VHF or UHF). Input and output frequencies may be different but they are on the same band.|
|• Cross Band Repeaters||Also called X-Band Repeaters. Used to connect two radio systems that each use different bands (ex. UHF & VHF).|
|• Vehicular Repeaters||Are mobile repeaters used in vehicles.|
|• Combination Repeaters||All-in-one units that act as both a base station radio and repeater.|
