The basic radio we're working with is the RT22 FRS radio described above.

To obtain one (or more) for your household, please contact Mel.

NOTE: We'll have an online order form soon.


Range estimates are very rough.

Actual practical range can vary wildly due to terrain, buildings, weather, etc.

2 Watt RT22 radios have achieved >6 miles. E.g. Boggs-Middletown, Loch Lomond (Ridge Rd) to Clearlake.

Theoretically, 20+ mile ranges may be possible, but only under ideal topographical and atmospheric conditions and with direct line-of-sight between the two radios (i.e. highly unlikely).
