There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Range? Sure as hell not 22 miles. On FRS channel in the clear outdoors with no obstruction got about 3/4 of a mile and that was the end of it.
The only disappointment is that the FCC and FTC continue to permit manufacturers to put absurdly ridiculous distance ranges on these radios in their marketing.
My application calls for less than 1000 foot in any direction and I don't expect any more than that.
One of the other consumer radio brands markets as 35 miles!!
AUGUST 2016 Over 8 months of occasional use. Mostly grand kids aged 5-12. These have held up very well so far. Range has been great for our camping trips. Still don't expect more than a mile but work well.
The common problem of this radio, also seen in other reviews, is that it often stops working well under very cold weather (= very common in skiing). I eventually realized that the problem is that the default rechargeable batteries are just not strong enough to hold the power under the chill. Because the radio can also house 3 AAA batteries, I used Eneloop instead (or to be precise, Amazon Basics rechargeables (AmazonBasics AAA High-Capacity Rechargeable Batteries (8-Pack) Pre-charged - Packaging May Vary), which some reviewers demonstrated are equivalent to Eneloop), and boy, it worked like a charm. We skied four days in 15-20F weather (cold yes, but great powder!) and the radio never ceased to work.
Until I found the solution, I searched around for a different radio which may work better in the cold, but pretty much all of them are a lot bulkier than these units. I'm glad I stuck with finding a good solution!
