What is an Amateur Radio Repeater and How Do They Work?

What is an amateur radio repeater and how do they work?

In this video, with a non-amateur-radio viewer in mind, I chat about the very basic concepts of a repeater.  This is a vlog (video blog) entry on my video channel, and it is shot in a relaxed, “ride along with me” format. Feel free to share this short overview with those who might be interested in our hobby.  There are more of these sorts of ridealongs coming.

Thank you for watching, and for sharing…

    Thanks, Tomas for the video, but the very loud background noise in your mobile setup detracted greatly and made it hard to hear what you were saying. I hope you can find a way to do these videos in a quiet environment, or cancel out the background noise. 73, W3HII

  • Daniel Adamovich N9DA:

    Well done explanation. Thank you.

  • Harold: Thank you for the kind comments regarding the background noise. I will try to improve this issue.

    Daniel: Thank you for the supportive comment!

    Great video Tomas. Very clear and easily understood explanation. Sometimes it is difficult for new Hams to grasp the repeater concept. Keep the video blogs coming. Thanks.
