I've had relatives try all different makes and models of FRS/GMRS and nothing ever worked well. Went back to old fashioned CB radios myself.

Walkie Talkies with longest range possible. I believe around 28-30 mile range. Mountian are tough to get a signal through, but with high range should go several miles.

There are some really good radios, seen some do well in the mountians, and get great reception..those are very expensive..do you have any favorites?

Probably best place to look would be Ebay. When I got mine, cost was about $20 less than local retail stores like Gander Mountain.

I heard that transponders go the distance, but you need a license to operate one, is that true?
