How Repeater RT97 works?

It is a communication system which receives a frequency from portable two-way radios, and re-transmits it at another frequency in real-time.

The repeater with the duplex, usually for the radio repeater like our RT97, has the full-duplex mode, with ability to transmit and receive at the same time.

For example:

Your handheld Radio model Retevis RT87

RT97 repeater

You need do:

1, Get your RT97 input frequency and output frequency and CTCSS/DCS code.

2, Set your radio RT87’s TX frequency and RX frequency and the CTCSS/DCS code.

Pay attention:

RT97 input frequency = RT87 TX frequency

RT97 output frequency=RT87 RX frequency

If you set the CTCSS/DCS code, please make sure the RT97 repeater’s input code same with the RT87 radio’s TX code.


Why use the repeater?

Your portable radio, like the Retevis RT87, with the limited communication range. So if you want to extend the communication range, or you can’t receive or tranmit because of the distance, you can consider the repeater.
