The range of a 2-way radio varies depending upon the obstructions between the transmitting and receiving radio. Under ideal conditions, (no trees, buildings, terrain) a commercial grade radio can talk 5 miles. In real life conditions you will typically reach 2 to 3 miles. Vehicle mounted radios can double this distance. There are several other factors that can affect range such as weather, frequency band, and wattage of the radio.
This can be accomplished with the use of a repeater. A repeater located at a high elevation can triple your range. Burlington Communication's sister company, FleetWave Partners, provides local and wide area repeater services for fleet businesses. You can also purchase your own repeater to increase your in-plant radio coverage or to increase the range of your police or fire departments radio system.
Analog two-way radio conversations are not secure. Most digital two-way radios offer some basic encryption to provide secure conversations.
