Me and a couple of buddies are looking for long range walkie talkies. Were lookin for 20+ miles. Anyone have any experience and suggestions.
I was looking at the first pair. What's the range you've tested on long island?The Architect said:FRS:
I have a pair and they work TERRIFIC!
..and NO you do not need a license to purchase/use. If you operate a radio that has been approved for both FRS and GMRS, and if you limit your operations to the FRS channels with a maximum power of ½ watt effective radiated power, you are not required to have a license.
It's the best 40 bucks I spent on walkie-talkies.
Longer range ones:
---I have not tested this one.
Hey will-Im not exactly sure (i am relatively new to radios and dont have a full grasp as to the frequencys you referenced. However, the radios are listed as repeater capable...willgrah said:jlk265, do those radios allow you to transmit duplex, do they have the GMRS repeater pairs. I have heard that there are a few models that do, I am just not familiar with those. Without the repeater pairs, 467.XXX TX and 462.XXX RX you will not be able to use the repeaters.
