A repeater is an electronic device that receives a portables or mobile signal on one frequency and re-transmits the received voice audio at a higher output level on another frequency, so that the signal can cover longer distances without degradation. The term “repeater” originated with Morse code telegraphy and referred to an electro-mechanical device used to regenerate telegraph signals. Today the Lakeshore Repeater Association operate the Three KR9RK repeaters in the VHF and UHF spectrum including both analog and DMR UHF systems. These repeaters cover a large area of South Eastern Wisconsin and parts of North Eastern Illinois. These repeaters help the Ham Radio community keep in contact over long distances that would otherwise not be possible in the Very-High and Ultra-High Frequency spectrum.
Courteous and legal use of a repeater is the responsibility of every amateur radio operator. Amateur Radio Operators in an effort to promote Good Amateur Practice have established these guidelines to encourage good operating practices. Individuals who are unable abide by these guidelines may be asked to refrain from using the Lakeshore repeaters.
