I bought this for my grandboys. It says the range is 16 miles, but could not work at 500 feet. So don't think you will be able to go far and still communicate. You can't
Bought these for my kids ages 5-7 after buying another brand a few months earlier. These work very good. Distance is questionable but they come in clear and last when fully charged.
As a truck driver for 30 years, I have had 3 cb radios in my trucks. This one replaced one that was stolen and has performed extremely well for what I need it for. Like most radios out of the box, you will need to have it peaked and tuned for better reception and transmission. Usually another **** bucks will get it done from an expert radio person.
