    Relay stations for microwaves. That is, since microwaves do not propagate beyond the line-of-sight, if you want to transmit them beyond it, you need to establish a "chain" of stations (relays) between the emitter and the receiver each of them "repeating" the transmission, usually without any change except to amplify it.

    We also use the word "relay"in formal English as a synonym for "pass on".
