Milton Keynes Repeaters

Welcome to our repeater page where we give details of our own club repeaters and others that are reported to cover the Milton Keynes area.

A repeater, as the name suggests, is intended to receive (on the input channel) signals from a portable or mobile station and retransmit (relay) them on a different frequency (the output channel) within the same amateur band. Repeaters are unmanned and entirely automatic operation.

They are situated on the top of a hill or tall building where the antenna can be positioned as high as possible.

Thus the limited range of a portable  or mobile station going through a repeater can be greatly increased.
