Rango o alcance de la estación base/ retroalcance o alcance de la estación móvil (repetidor)

RF Propagation simply means the transmission of radio signals from the transmitter output to the receiver. The propagation model takes into account the effects of the surrounding terrain, diffraction loss, foliage loss, and other system elements based on designer input parameters such as site coordinates, ground elevation, antenna type, azimuth, transmitter power, transmitter antenna height and receiver antenna height.
RF Coverage plots are done separately for down-link (a.k.a. Talk-Out) for base station to mobile and up-link (a.k.a. Talk-Back) from the mobile to the fixed base station. The predicted receive signal level (a.k.a. RSSI - Received Signal Strength Indicator) is calculated and plotted along with the roadmap helps to assess the coverage holes and adjust the systems design parameter accordingly.

ambos sentidos (Up-link y Down Link)

agree  Robin Levey: Correct. It's a bit long-winded in Spanish, but I'm not aware of any specific (jargon) term more directly equivalent to talk-back/talk-out".

O talk radio é apenas para conversa, o rádio bate-papo tem também música mas parece que a tradução é essa
Talk radio is a radio format containing discussion about topical issues and consisting entirely or almost entirely of original spoken word content rather than outside music. Most shows are regularly hosted by a single individual -
In Australia, talk radio is known as "talkback radio". - the same link

Reference: talk-back / talk-out concept

Reference information:
The concept is explained on pages 266/267 here:

"5.1.7 Coverage
5.1.7,1 Talk-Out and Talkback Ranges
The area covered by a network depends on many parameters- In Figure 5-6, the symbol R represents rhe talk-out range of the base station at the center of the figure. The talk-out range of a base station is close to the radio line-of-sight (LOS) range, typically a 5-mile (8-lun) to 40-mile (64-km) distance from the radio base station tower, depending on the (1) type of mobile station (mobile or portable), (2) antenna performance and heights above ground, and (3) intervening terrain, foliage, and buildings (see Chapter 3). Any receiver on the same frequency within this range ^should be able to detect transmissions from another base station, a mobile, or a portable, assuming the background noise and radio interference are low enough at the reception point. The range at which rhis base station can receive a signal from a mobile or portable is depicted by r, called the talk-in or talkb&tk range.
As depicted in the figure, the talk-back range r^ (also called rhe uplink) for a portable is typically, although nor necessarily, less than the talk-out range J?^ (also called the downlink because they have much less transmit power than rhe fixed equipment at radio towers- A mobile with a vehicle-mounted antenna usually has a talkback range r^ nearly equal Co the talk-out range RM of the tower site- The principal reason for greater mobile talkback range than portable talkback range is that portables have much less power and much lower antenna efficiency than mobiles- In fact, portables typically have only 3W of output power, compared to 50V/or more for a base station 01 mobile. In addition, the vehicular (mobile) antenna gain may be more than lOtimes greater tlun the portable antenna gain."
