that is a very vague term. The first thing I think of is the boxes they use for DSL when they want to make it reach further from the CO. They use a signal booster (aka "extender") to amplify the signal to go further.

But it could be anything, can you be more specific?

2.2.1 What’s an extender?

Unlike most systems exploited by phreaks, a WATS extender is designed to be used for making phone calls without directly billing the caller. WATS extenders are 800 numbers connected to bulk rate billed telephone lines and guarded by a pass code (usually a VERY LONG one). "950s" are another common form of extender. The most common incarnation of extenders today is the dialup used for prepaid phonecards. Be warned: extenders VERY often utilize real time ANI, and do not react well to abuse. These things are dangerous and should be treated with care.

Check out the full text of the document. It's a little old but still a pretty good read.
