A repeater is usually installed at an elevated height and is equipped with an antenna system so it can receive weak signals and have wide transmission/coverage. A repeater base station can extend your communication range of a low-power handheld radio from an enclosed area to hundreds of miles, or even worldwide. A Motorola repeater is an extremely powerful radio – Portable radios work on 5 watts, mobile radios work on 25 watts or more, and repeaters are even more powerful working between a 50 to 100-watt range.
A Motorola digital repeater improves the coverage of your radio system. It provides increased capacity capable of producing two channels from one Ofcom frequency. This will in turn increase productivity and reduces license fees.
