What's the range


A quick google search yielded a theoretical range of 2 miles. This range is as the crow flies, and assumes an unobstructed open area, with no interference. In practicality, the radios will reach from one side of a side to another maybe a bit further. When Outside on a clear day in a city a football field or two will probably be the max. The range greatly depends on where you are located; buildings, power lines, and cars will interfere with the signal.

18 miles max range but actual it can transmit and


The reason for this is due to various possible conditions. The first being obstacles in the operation range of the unit. IE> hills buildings trees ect. This can greatly reduce the actual distance the unit will work in. The 18mile max is probably a rating that would apply in the best opt. scenario. You would have to be on a flat terrain with no hills or valleys,no trees or buildings for the unit to reach the max distance. In dense areas of trees,buildings or uneven terrian you wont even come close to these distances. Second: any unit RF unit that is held in your hand or close to your body does cause the antenna to detune to various degrees the amount that it does depends on how well the unit has been designed. The more it detunes the less resonated frequence is recieved and amplified making for a weaker signal. In conclusion for the best long range reception be clear of as much surronding interference as possible and as high a possible above any elevated terrian

1/2 mile range max


Advertising on these models is much like reading about a car's MPG, it must be in perfect conditions. Handheld radios generally will talk "radio-to-radio", "line-of-sight" up to 2 miles. Once you start putting obstacles in between the radios you will shorten your range. Even the body fluid of the person wearing the radio on their hip will absorb some of the range. Talking from inside of a building to outside you might expect 1/4 to 1/2 mile. Good rule of thumb: Height and placement of your antenna determines range. The higher the antenna, the further you can talk. If you are talking from on a mountain top to a valley below you can talk as far as you can see. Increasing Range: Hold your radio perpendicular to the ground, not slanted like you would hold a phone. This problem alone could decrease your range 2/3s. Face the direction you are wanting to communicate. Don't shout CB-style, shouting reduces talk-range. Lastly, use good batteries. This will ensure your transmit capability.
