Would FRS radios cover a
Walmart super-center as far
as range is concerned?
Try it and report back.
Depends on the amount of RF sponges in the store.
Most decent frs sets are good for at least half a mile. I haven't been back to the US for a while, are super W-Ms that big now ??
I just waiting for the new guy, DuelAntennas to chime in here. Do not confuse him with DualAntennas. (Note spelling) He is not the same guy. Nope. Not him. No way.
He needs time to ask his uncle the truck driver, then I am sure he will chime in.
Well, I can tell I have been absent from here way to long.
you really haven't missed much.
Agreed. In fact you were lucky.A lot of us would have given our I-teeth to have missed it.

He's not asking for your thread to be deleted, he just deleted his post.
correct, I typed something then changed my mind so I asked for my post to be deleted.
Yes they will cover a walmart range, but remember, and walkie talkie or any radio for they matter has to accept interference from other devices per the FCC. You may be able to talk from one end of Walmart to the other, but you may also run into a lot of interference as well inside because of all the other electronics inside the store. Buy a set, try to get some that have a good range on them 30+ miles if possible, they do cost more.
I use these for work, they cost around 80-100 dollars. Advertised as 30+ miles, they will eat some batteries up so if possible get the lithium batts for them, they last longer. Best I can say is buy a good set and try for yourself. Good luck and don't forget the dual antennas lol.
