2-way Radios
« on: March 10, 2012, 07:53:00 AM »
Does anybody use 2 way radios to communicate with family members at campgrounds? If so, any recommendations. Any responses will be helpful. Thank you.  :)

Just about any FRS radios will work fine within a campground.  We have Cobras but there are other makes as well.

We use Motorola Talkabout FRS radios and they have worked well for us.

FRS here.  Buy the longest range they have, usually 18 miles, and expect much less.  However they should cover the average campground.

We use these http://www.amazon.com/Cobra-microTALK-CXT90-18-Mile-22-Channel/dp/B001RHS8IQ/ref=pd_sim_e_6  they work fine and at $35 didn't break the bank.
