A repeater takes the transmissions of the agency's radios and rebroadcasts them on a separate frequency from a more ideal location (top of a tall building, mountaintop, tall tower, etc).Ive been scanning for 5 years but never really understood the terms......
so whats a repeater?
also heard of car repeater....whats that?
Most area lists show it as a simplex base/mobile freq.. . . . have input for the Monroeville PD as 155.970. Years of monitoring it shows it is a repeater system.I don't listen to Monroeville so I'm not sure - but the RRDB lists 155.43 as a simplex base/mobile frequency, not a repeater.
