A power line carrier communications system transformer bridge/repeater for receiving on a power line communications network a series of original message bit streams generated by a transmitting module and for relaying on the power line communications network corresponding relayed message bit streams to receiving modules. The transformer bridge/repeater includes coupling means adapted for connection to a power line communications network for receiving original message bit streams and for coupling relayed message bit streams onto a power line communications network. Processor means is connected to the coupling means and is responsive to certain predetermined ones of the original message bit streams for generating a corresponding relayed message bit stream.
