What is a Repeater?

An amateur radio repeater is an electronic device that receives a weak or low-level amateur radio signal and retransmits it at a higher level or higher power, so that the signal can cover longer distances without degradation.

Many repeaters are located on hilltops or on tall buildings as the higher location increases their coverage area, sometimes referred to as the radio horizon, or "footprint".

Amateur radio repeaters are similar in concept to those in use by public safety (police, fire, etc.), business, government, military, and more.
