So I've started down the rabbit hole of handheld communicators and realize this could take a long time as there are so many diversions.
Ability to communicate through/around/over obstructions like buildings, hills etc.
Easy to use
Under $200 for a pair
Like to have:
Waterproof (an 8 year old will probably drop it)
Rugged (an 8 year old will probably drop it)
Educamacate me? Or at the very least, direct me to a reliable source where I can narrow down my options?
Example: Motorola T600 Waterproof....seems to fit the bill, but reviews tell me the range is horrible if there are any line of site obstructions
