My club is interested in purchasing some longer range radios for use at tests/trials. We currently use some basic radios at each stake/test and these work well; however, we need some longer range radios for communications among several locations that are a few miles apart in flat country.

Just looking for recommendations on good radios. It seems like we need some 10+ mile range units for good dependable service.

Thanks for the help.

You are probably looking at a VHF radio for that kind of range.
Motorola has them as do others.
The FRS radios normally used in training setups will not give your the distance you require.

VHF would work, just becareful with what channals you use. You could alway sign up with a company with 2 way radios.
