Hope this helps
Yes, it did, thank you. We were looking for something to have in our skiffs to be able to talk to the shore and the Coast Guard. Will look for real VHF's
must it be direct line of sight to communicate? use hunting on hhilly woods
Direct line of sight offers the maximimum range of up to 30 + mile, but any obstructions can dimish it to half or even less. Deep gullies and the like can be a problem sometimes.
how do i program the range?
I don't think you can program the range. It is what it is. Varies on what obstacles are in the way - buildings, walls, hills, trees etc. Says that the range is 35 miles but it is a far cry from that.
