What is the typical range of a two-way radio?

It’s difficult to give a definite answer on this as there are lots of variables which can affect the range of two-way radios. Although many radios claim to have a far reaching range, day-to-day conditions are not usually optimal, objects and the environment get in the way and so a radio’s actual range will be a lot less. Licence free radios have on average a range of 1 to 2 miles although this can be reduced drastically if the signal has to pass through solid objects, for example the thickness and density of objects and buildings will have varying effects on the signal. Licensed radios have a greater range, maybe 3 to 4 miles and this can be increased again when repeaters and antennas are used. It is also possible to have a number of radios talking to one another via an IP connection, which allows different sites in different locations to be linked in a radio network.
