password Posted October 22, 2019 Report Share Posted October 22, 2019 This is just an idea I've had and would like some input in it, mainly concerning legality not practicality. I currently have a repeater on .700 and it got fairly good coverage, about 8 miles on a hand held (130ft db408 with flat land) . I can hear it close to 15 miles out but cant get back into it. It’s also only 7W so I can turn it up a good amount, just haven’t as there’s no point to it. My idea is to have a "repeater" that links into the main repeater for improved handheld coverage, it would be on a simplex pair and repeat onto the repeaters main input channel. This should allow me to hear the repeater directly then use one of the linking repeaters to get into it. The gmrs repeater input channels are just to close in frequency for me to practically use those as a rx and tx in one repeater, as they would only be 0.5~ MHz apart using repeater input frequency’s. The aux repeaters would have PL tones to avoid bubble pack users form getting into the system. The aux repeaters would have an input of 462.500 and output of 467.700 and just extend the main repeaters reception, The output would be yagi back to the main repeater and its 462.500 would be an antenna like a db-404, this would allow hand held coverage in areas you cant currently get into the repeater at. My question is, is such a system legal, or is there something preventing this from being legally doable. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
