One thing you might also want to consider are any calls you make to 911 
whilst using a repeater.

I use a repeater supplied by T-Mobile and they made it very clear, and I 
had to specifically acknowledge a statement, that using such a repeater 
takes away from emergency services being able to find out where you are 
if you make a 911 call from your mobile.

Some may refer to this as a feature, depending on how much tin foil you 
have laying about, but the users of such device may need to be warned 
about emergency calls.  They'll need to be able to describe where they 
are to the responding sirens.
