Ok, to be 100% legal what you're asking is not possible unless you win the lotto by finding a set of MURS radios at a failed business liquidation auction.Hello! I don't know if this is the right topic to put this in, but here we go anyway.
I am looking basically for a walkie-talkie. I want something that won't require a license to use and won't be illegal to use. Not anything too expensive (under $100) and comes with 3-4 units that can communicate with each other at once. I don't need anything with a huge range, but just something that covers less than 5 miles. I would use it in a wooded area mostly (I live in MA in the middle of the woods lol). I just need some suggestions from all of you guys on recommended walkies that would fit my criteria.
This is because your options are only UHF FRS which is only 500mw (half a watt) and VHF-HI MURS at 2-watts and HF AM CB at 4-watts.
The FRS option meets your price needs but not your distance needs.
The MURS option meets your distance needs but not your price needs.
The CB option is a gamble.
If going with the FRS option I would get these: Two 16 Mile/22 Channel FRS/GMRS Radios with AC Adapter - Two-Way Radios at Uniden Simple and rechargeable and no tempting illegal wattage available, just don't use channels 15-22.
If going with MURS I would get these Motorola RMM2050 On-Site 2-Way Radio (Single) RMM2050 B&H Photo Wonderful build quality, MIL spec.
CB might be a good balance between price and range depending on pirates and interference in your area.
