Not the greatest if buying ONLY for emergency communication

David Russell, Amazon
19 August 2012
  • Summary: This unit arrived as advertised - the "range" mentioned on the product description is HIGHLY misleading - we've tried to send / receive as closely as less than 2 miles with ZERO luck (in fairness we're in a neighborhood environment with houses and trees rendering no clear 'line of sight') We'll try...
