A short story - back in the 50's a new TV station was going on on the air in Tulsa, OK. They built their studios in a solidly built building on the NW side of downtown. As they were getting ready to put in the waveguide they found the floors to be solid concrete with no path to the roof. The solution was to connect the xmttr to an antenna and point it out the window and using two 10 ft square aluminum panels, one outside the window and one by the top floor, outside and did a billiard shot signal to the TV xmttr site about 15 miles out of town. Worked perfectly for several years.

What about what I said??
In the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 47, the FCC wrote:
§ 74.532 Licensing requirements.
(d) Licensees of aural broadcast STL and intercity relay stations may be authorized to operate one or more aural broadcast microwave booster stations for the purpose of relaying signals over a path that cannot be covered with a single station.
(e) Each aural broadcast auxiliary station will be licensed at a specified transmitter location to communicate with a specified receiving location, and the direction of the main radiation lobe of the transmitting antenna will be a term of the station authorization.
§ 74.535 Emission and bandwidth.
(e) The following limitations apply to the operation of aural broadcast microwave booster stations:
(1) The booster station must receive and amplify the signals of the originating station and retransmit them on the same frequency without significantly altering them in any way. The characteristics of the booster transmitter output signal shall meet the requirements applicable to the signal of the originating station.
