Abstract : The 'pole-mounted repeater' is here defined as an unmanned, low-power imcrowave repeater in a small equipment shelter mounted on the antenna supporting structure. Examples are provided which illustrate primary considerations for application of such repeaters to FDM/FM or digital systems using frequencies between 10 and 100 GHz. The self-interference problem is discussed and millimeter wave equipment which might be suitable for pole-mounted repeaters is briefly described. Finally, some of the advantages and options made available by the use of parallel route diversity are considered. (Author) Portions of this document are not fully legible.
