Subject: 2-way radios
Hello Ziners, I am wondering what sort of advice Ziners can give me about the little belt-worn two-way radios that claim to keep travelers comunicado. Today at Menards I saw Cobra brand ones for $79 a set of two before sending in the $20 rebate. They are supposed to reach for five miles. Has anyone ever tried them? If they actually work well, I might be interested in getting them for our upcoming trip to England with our two teenaged daughters. I remember getting separated from the family while in St. Peter's Cathedral at the Vatican; it was rather scary. I was glad for the white tennis shoes, fluorescent pink hat, and yellow and black striped jacket that made my tourist family stand out from the crowd of black clothes and shoes. Thanks in advance for any advice on the radios.
