Two Way Radio Repeaters
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.
Main 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.|
