Are you trying to know how far the Radio can let you to communicate?
It depends on mainly two things , type of terrain and weather conditions. the first is the most important and the seecond sums a little. If you are on a hill it is to connect you with your party as far as you can see, but if you are on the middle of a jungle sorrounded by high mountains it isnt goingo to get you more than two(2) miles.
The manual isn't specific, but your VOX feature likely works only with an optional external mic. To turn this feature off for normal use, - Press MENU four times (display will show VOX) - Select oF by pressing the up or down arrow key - Push the PTT button to confirm and return to normal operation
Back when Family Radios first came out a number of manufacturers came out with both standard 14 channel radios and scaled-down single channel radios designed as entry level offerings. My guess is the radio you have is probably a single channel unit based on what you describe. It probably operates on FRS channel 1 (462.5625 MHz).
If you post the model number and FCC ID number (which should be located on a sticker on the back of the radio) I might be able to give you some more information.
