Range really depends
As with any hand held, range varies as much as the number of people on earth. Simples 0.5 to 5 miles hand held to hand held line of sight. Maybe a little more than 5 miles to a base. 10 miles to 50 miles through 1 repeater. However, should have license to transmit on ALL frequencies except for FRS. But I am not certain it is certified for the GMRS, FRS frequencies. Someone else might know this.
