A repeater is an electronic device in a communication channel that increases the power of a signal and retransmits it, allowing it to travel further.
Why would you need repeater?
When you want to communicate with two way radios but there are buildings between them, your signal will be severely weakened or even blocked completely, at which point you need to connect a repeater to get a better communication signal. However, repeaters are used even when there are no obstruction in the way as they are excellent for extending range.
Where to “FIND” a repeater?A repeater is generally placed on top of a tall structure or a mountain, and it is fitted with a powerful antenna system that allows it to collect weak signals and transmit across a large area.
