Subject: Re: 2-way radios

We find 2-way radios useful but remember that they have a pretty short range. Five miles maybe on the desert, much shorter distances in real life. They are line of sight, and if there are a lot of buildings in the way you may have problems. They are great for theme parks, hypermarkets and malls, large buildings where people are in different parts, etc.

US radios are illegal in Europe. And vice-versa. You can buy them in Europe pretty cheaply, eg in the UK at Tandy (Radio Shack).
