Fuel cell backup power systems are added to critical base stations or cell sites to provide emergency power.
In Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) networks, the correct term is Base Transceiver Station (BTS), and colloquial synonyms are "mobile phone mast" or "base station".

Walkie-talkie

In professional two-way radio systems, a base station is used to maintain contact with a dispatch fleet of hand-held or mobile radios, and/or to activate one-way paging receivers.
Such systems always work with a base station that acts as a repeater and controller, although individual handsets and mobiles may have a mode that bypasses the base station.

GSM

Macro cells can be regarded as cells where the base station antenna is installed on a mast or a building above average rooftop level.

Radiotelephone

Wireless telephone differ from two-way radios in that:
Likewise, transmitters are carefully designed to avoid unwanted interference and feature power outputs from a few tens of milliwatts to perhaps 50 watts for a mobile unit, up to a couple of hundred watts for a base station.

Picocell

A picocell is a small cellular base station typically covering a small area, such as in-building (offices, shopping malls, train stations, stock exchanges, etc.), or more recently in-aircraft.

Cordless telephone

The base station is connected to the telephone network through a telephone line as a corded telephone is, and also serves as a charger to charge the handset's batteries.

Microcell

A microcell is a cell in a mobile phone network served by a low power cellular base station (tower), covering a limited area such as a mall, a hotel, or a transportation hub.

Terrestrial Trunked Radio

TETRATETRA radio systemTETRA radio
In traditional wireless communications, it can refer to the hub of a dispatch fleet such as a taxi or delivery fleet, the base of a TETRA network as used by government and emergency services or a CB shack.
These are represented in association with the decaying radio carrier as the distance increases from the TETRA base station.

Current loop

4-20 mA4-20mA4–20 mA
Remote control base stations can be operated over tone- or DC-remote circuits.
Current loop circuits are one possible way used to control radio base stations at distant sites.

Cellular repeater

In many rural areas the housing density is too low to make construction of a new base station commercially viable.

Base transceiver station

BTS is also referred to as the node B (in 3G Networks) or, simply, the Base Station (BS).

Antenna (radio)

antennaantennasradio antenna
Technical measures to limit exposure include restricting the radio frequency power emitted by the station, elevating the antenna above ground level, changes to the antenna pattern, and barriers to foot or road traffic.
In some applications where the receiving antenna must work in any position, as in mobile phones, the base station antennas use mixed polarization, such as linear polarization at an angle (with both vertical and horizontal components) or circular polarization.

Fuel cell
