Yes, there certainly is. They are called "translators." They are common
in less populated areas of the country was either vast distances between
major cities and/or geographically challenged with hills/mountains. There
is also a passive way of bringing television to small communities. An antenna
is placed on a mountain top or hill with line of sight to the broadcast towers.
That antenna is connected to a second antenna facing usually downward
toward the small community. Outdoor antennas in the small community
receive the signal from the second antenna pointed directly at them. It works
but not nearly as well as the translator system.
