Just thought I'd enlighten you on the best of the best of GMRS... (if you think it's called FRS than you're living in the past maaan).
The Motorola T7100 is FAR AND AWAY the best of any GMRS radio out there. Nothing came even close to it in terms of quality and distance. the T5500 from Motorola is just a TAD better than FRS.
Otherwise, Uniden, Cobra etc etc... they all aren't much different than FRS radios were... don't expect super long range or anything. The Cobra PR3100 has some neat features like vibrate alert but again if you need distance the T7100's are the ones to pick.
So umm ya... Just thought I'd help some of y'all out with information and such. I did a big testing report on all the different brands/models and these blew me away.
Real life distance? I got about 20km over water... about 2km through woods and about 2km through the city. Some of the other radio's I'd be lucky to get a couple blocks down and they'd crap out.
Bye for now!
