Radio frequency (RF) repeaters work hand in hand with the closest DAS (Distributed Antenna System) to improve the cellular coverage in an area. RF repeaters take a low power signal from a cell phone and exponentially strengthen the signal. The DAS receives signals from local transceiver stations in greater number which magnifies the signals sent...
