All About Radio Repeaters, Range Extenders and Signal Boosters

Radiorepeaterb Did you know that a modern cell phone has a much poorer transmit/receive capability than was formerly the case in older models?  The poorer quality of the phone's ability to make and receive calls (and data) is masked by the improved coverage by cell phone towers, but on occasion, we all lose signal.

As an introduction to the concept of extending the range of a phone or other wireless device, here now is an article that explains all about radio repeaters, what they are, and how they work.

This article will be followed in the next several days by an article reviewing an excellent cell phone signal booster, and a second article reviewing a range extender for your laptop's Wi-fi.

Free Weekly Emailed Newsletter

Usually weekly, since 2001, we publish a roundup of travel and travel related technology developments, and often a feature article too.

You’ll stay up to date with the latest and greatest (and cautioned about the worst) developments.  You’ll get information to help you choose and become a better informed traveler and consumer, how to best use new technologies, and at times, will learn of things that might entertain, amuse, annoy or even outrage you.

We’re very politically incorrect and love to point out the unrebutted hypocrisies and unfairnesses out there.

This is all entirely free (but you’re welcome to voluntarily contribute!), and should you wish to, easy to cancel.

We’re not about to spam you any which way and as you can see, we don’t ask for any information except your email address and how often you want to receive our newsletters.
