Automatic Retransmitting Makeshift Repeater
As soon as a radio signal opens Radio 1's squelch circuit, a tiny amount of energy stolen from the audio signal turns on the MOSFET and it conducts as long as the audio is present. While it conducts, Radio 2 is on the air, retransmitting the content supplied by Radio 1 through C1 and P1.
The BS108 has a conveniently low G-S threshold voltage. The other components' characteristics are not critical, but it would be wise to stay close to the values shown in the picture, or at least take them as a starting point for testing.
