Is it just me or have hand held walkie talkies come a long way in the last few years.  I have a couple units that I thought have a pretty good range at about 2 miles and I just saw yesterday some new units that have up to 28 mile range in ideal conditions.

Walkie talkies have come on a huge way in the last few years.  28 miles, would suggest licensed devices rather than license free as yuo would need increased power (wattage) to achieve that.  If you are buying "normal" civilian license free device go for the newer digital ones if you can afford them.  they have better performance in tress or built up areas.
