Is this a repeater?

Sorry, I'm not really experienced with this stuff but I'm experimenting with an SDR dongle and I can here people talking on a couple of frequencies and I'm wondering if it's local repeaters. I seem to be hearing chatter internationally though which is strange. Can somebody shed some light on it and maybe point me to where I can do some research and find out more about it?

The frequencies are 145.212.606, 145.425.000 and 145.400.121. I am based in the Mid Cheshire area.

The above frequencies should not be used for licensed repeaters, but that does not mean that they cannot be used to connect two radios together to act effectively as a personal repeater for cross band operation. Most modern radios are capable of crossband operation. That is listening on one frequency & transmitting on another.
Also since 2008 Raynet have had permission to operate talk through stations. That is stations that act as repeaters without the need for a Talk Through Permit & although the recommendation is that these operate on Raynet priority channels it is not a licence requirement that they do.

25KHz spacing between in and out makes for a damn expensive repeater.

But emptying the cavity filter is more fun.
