As previously discussed, the use of a repeater can solve the problem of an obstruction in line of sight conventional communications. This benefit is part of installing a repeater system, but there are also other benefits that can occur when there is no obstruction.
The lesson Communications Systems: How does a repeater system work? continues on from the Modulation and Radio Building Blocks lesson to explain how repeater systems work and how repeaters are not only excellent for ensuring communication can occur, but also for extending communication range.
