Transporting the Transporter

I've never seen an episode that might deal with this maybe someone else has.

Can a transporter transport itself? If the power unit was part of the transporter; it should in theory be (trek universe) possible. Right?

If it could it would be a new way to travel in space. You could even use two or more transporters joined together; while in the matter stream the other transporter(s) transported the matter stream further out...each transporter taking a turn to transport themselves and/or matter streams further and further out in into space until resolution peaks then consolidate all beams.

How far could i travel?
Make it so.

There is already a thread about this:

"Hailing Frequencies Closed"
“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States...The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge'.” - Isaac Asimov
