A Repeater will at least double the range of any simple 'back to back' radio system.
Most radio systems involve communication between users who are stood at ground level. Buildings and the terrain get in the way of direct radio paths between users and range can be limited. A Repeater is located in a high position to relay the signal over obstructions.
The Icom analogue (PMR) and digital (DMR DMPR) repeater will extend range over medium and large areas as well as handle a mix of analogue and digital traffic.
