It'd be a proper relay receiver. We use an Inovonics one to do linking between Gore and Mid Dome, but it's at an intermediate site with a view of both to save the cost of two STLs. Picks up Gore off-air, STL to Mid Dome (pic is with a temporary STL tx when our main RVR one died). Composite out, composite in to the STL so MPX and RDS are passed.

It's an oldie now, I see the current version is the 650 with more bells and whistles.

RVR used to do one as well, based on the same form factor as their RXRL-NV STL receivers, but it doesn't seem to be in their catalogue now.
