Wireless communication systems are widely employed to support communication for a large number of users. In a wireless communications system, a base station receives a wireless signal from a communications device, such as a mobile phone. A user on one remote terminal is able to communicate with another user on another remote terminal via a wireless link to a base station. Each base station is designed to coordinate and facilitate the communication between the remote terminals within its coverage area. Wireless communication networks typically employ repeaters to provide coverage for designated areas within the network or to extend the coverage of the network. A repeater is a type of relay station which receives, amplifies and retransmits the radio signals emitted by the base station of a radio network so that they can be received by the mobile stations in the radio network. A wireless repeater is used between the communications device and the base station. A repeater may be used to cover a particular region within a network not covered by a base station due to fading conditions (i.e., a hole within the network). Repeaters may also be used to extend coverage into rural areas (e.g., along a freeway) that are outside the coverage area of the base stations. The repeater extends the range of the base station by amplifying and re-transmitting the wireless signal between the communications device and the base station. The repeater has become a recognized tool to help service providers expand coverage and fill in coverage in null areas without the expense of full base station sites.
