Simplex repeater?

Rob KA2PBT <pabutusa@...>

Has anyone ever constructed a simplex repeater? Something like a "parrot" but actually connected to a radio?

I'm not looking to connect to any network. Just a free standing node that grabs the voice packets and then sends them back out. 

Not an ideal situation but something that could be setup to extend range for a project or event.
