Heading out to my second Boy Scout summer cam as a leader. Last year I learned that cell coverage generally sucks at these camps and was loaned a walkie but this year I have learned much from my first venture into Boy Scout camp and am going prepared with some stuff I did not have last year. One of those things is going to be an FRS walkie talkie. I have started looking and restores I have decided I would like are waterproof, rechargeable, and a charging station. I did some searches on Best Buy as I have a bunch of reward certificates and a gift card so it will be zero out of pocket. Choices seem t come down to Cobra, Motorola, and Uniden. They all list a 35-37 mile range so nothing really different there, I only need a 5 mile range at most. The uniden is listed as FRS/GMRS it sure what the extra band gets me. I guess real question is which brand is most likely to work problem free for years to come.
