Hello, I’m interested in setting up a repeater system at hunting basecamp on top of my pop up camper. Each hunting member has a UV-5R or BF-F8HP. I already have a GMRS license, and am taking the Ham test in less than a week. There is one extra UV-5R in the camp.
Do I need two Baofengs to set up a repeater system, one to transmit and one to receive, or can one Baofeng perform both functions?
Is this the right solution, or should I buy a standalone repeater? If so, any recommendations? If I have to buy additional Baofengs to build a repeater I may just buy a more robust and simple solution.
