A question about extending repeater coverage


Recommended Posts

The problem with that solution is you tie up multiple frequencies sometimes in a large area. the best way is called simulcast but its not cheap and requires the proper gear. I ran a simulcast system for some time and it works great. Many public safety systems are simulcast which is how officers have on hip portable coverage. There are very few out there who run simulcast on GMRS and HAM just because its not plug and play. For myself I run multiple repeaters. Most are all same frequency with different RX DPL tones. Same TX CTCSS. This is referred to as a poor mans voter but works well for my use case. I dont need to talk 100 miles and if I do I pick up my cell phone.
