Use communication:amateur_radio:repeater=* to mark the location of a amateur radio repeater.

A amateur radio repeater is a automatic transceiver that receives a signal and transmits it on a different frequency. A repeater receives input, often on one or more fixed frequencies, then retransmits it on another fixed frequency.

Radio amateurs typically use repeaters on VHF and UHF bands in order to communicate within a region using hand-held radios. Multiple repeaters may be linked together to give wider coverage over an area by other radios (typically on a different band) or via Internet Protocol (e.g. IRLP, Echolink, AllStarLink). Linking of repeaters may be continual or turned off an on as needed.

Repeaters are typically associated with a communication tower but sometimes may use a tall building or geographical feature for the necessary height.
