Two-way radios like FRS and GMRS operate via line of sight and obstructions such as trees, hills, mountains, etc. can directly impact just how far your radio range extends. However, the use of a repeater can drastically improve your range.

Midland Radio breaks down what a repeater is, how repeaters work, and how repeaters can transform your two-way radio range.

HOW DO RADIO WAVES WORK?

Radio waves travel in straight lines.

These waves can navigate through some obstructions, but this will impact the strength (range) and clarity of communication. This is a problem in areas with mountains and a lot of hills.

Also, on flatter terrain, just the distance between the two radios can drastically weaken the radio range.

WHAT IS A REPEATER AND HOW DO THEY WORK?

Repeaters act as a combination of a radio receiver and radio transmitter. They receive a signal and transmit it so that two-way radios can cover longer distances and navigate obstructions. This makes repeaters the middle man and why they're so important in improving radio range. 

The higher you mount the antenna, the better coverage you can get. Thus, repeaters are typically installed high up on a building or hill in a centrally located area. The better the spot of repeater installation, the better the radio range. 

A repeater won't just push radio range further, but it'll also improve the clarity of two-way radio transmission.
