What can I expect from a Barrett VHF radio rebroadcast system?

When setting up a tactical VHF radio network, there are two main factors that could affect establishing reliable VHF communications between all stations:

• The distances between the communicating VHF radio positions: Restricted to line of sight, the further the communicating radios are apart, the poorer the communications become.
• Surrounding terrain: VHF propagation is severely hampered by urban buildings and hilly surrounds.

If the above conditions are likely to jeopardise the quality of your communications, you need to consider a way to boost the operating distance of your tactical VHF radio network.

How does a VHF radio rebroadcast system work?

VHF signals are optimised for line-of-sight communications – as such, when you need to extend the range or mitigate urban buildings or hilly terrain, a rebroadcast system is the best solution.

A rebroadcast system receives a VHF signal on one frequency and re-transmits it simultaneously on a different frequency. This is done in both directions between operators. This ensures the radio signal covers greater distances, improving the operational range.

VHF radio transmissions work best for line of sight communications.

A rebroadcast system extends the range of the VHF system capability which otherwise would be restricted to local line-of-sight communications.

How will a rebroadcast system improve my network communications?

Using a tactical VHF rebroadcast system helps operators by providing connectivity between two networks where line of sight is not possible. With a rebroadcast system and appropriate antennas, teams on opposite sides of a hill range can still communicate if they are within range of the system. This is a significant benefit, ensuring operators have the ability to connect with distributed teams in adverse VHF operating scenarios.
