Using two base stations on cordless phones?

I already have a Base station and one slave. A wired handset is slowly dying. Where it is the cordless has poor reception so can I use 2 base stations plugged into the same line, or does the extra phone have to be another slave?

I don't understand why you need two base stations, you can by cordless phones with 2, 3, or4 handsets and even more and they all work off the one base station. If the signal is poor where the base station is nowthen move it to another socket, there's no requirement for it to be plugged into the master

The position of the sockets are such that neither with a base station plugged in cover the whole house. Nothing to do with master socket. That is why I currently have a corded phone in one socket.

Nothing to stop you having 2 base units on one line but they will be independent of each other

Just check the REN of each base station before you buy them, the maximum is 4 so you could have two base stations each with a REN of 2
