Family radio service is a license free ultra high frequency band that works well for short range personal communications. We find the range to be about 1/2 mile, not 2 miles as they say in the literature. These are very small and light so they are great "mall" radios or "park" radios. we tested many models and found some had poor audio and confusing controls, so we choose the ones that worked the best. These are not the same as the commercial radios for either durability or range. Most use aa or aaa batteries and because of the low power they last for a long time.
