Always thinking I might need some good backup comms when the land lines and celly's crap out. I'd like a decent 2-way setup with real range. Maybe military surplus but available for civilian use. I've tried a few of the inexpensive sets like the Midland, etc... and as soon as you put a house or 2, or some trees in between you and the other guy they're shit. I want something handheld that I can get 40-50 miles out of. Is there anything out there under $500?
