Who test Repeater RT97?

Lewis, our friend from UK, take the Repeater RT97 to have a test. He invited his friend James to help him testing. They drove to outdoor, somewhere in staffordshire, find a really oepn area to test it.

Because they test the repeater’s range, so they need to make sure the distance that two handheld radios can’t talk to each other.


Their plan

Put the Repeater RT97 in the car, James left repeater about 3.5miles (about 7.6km), Lewis went to the other direction 2.5miles (about 4km)distance from the repeater. Total about 6miles ( about 9.3km) to test the range of the repeater RT97.


Lewis installed the repeater into the car, they used a box with the antenna out of the car, and in the box, there has the battery backup. Then connected the RT97 with the box: antenna and power.


Lewis and James went to the right place. 3.5miles and 2.5miles ditance from the repeater. Lewis used the Retevis RT3S to test.


They talked by handheld radio RT3S, with the 59 crystal clear voice. They all are impressed by this repeater.
