Whether You need long range or not, I would recommend you get the greatest labelled distance You can afford. Rated distance of FRS/GMRS radios is over open land i.e. grassland, meadows, dirt flat land. Add in 12-18" oak, chesnut or maple trees, that you cannot see open sky through, and the distance cuts dramatically. The longer the distance they are rated, the more transmit power and receive sensitivity, and the better to penetrate what is called land clutter in the radio world. Trees, brush, etc.
There are both FRS (Family Radio Service) and GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) channels in most radios. FRS is unlicensed, and has lower transmit power. GMRS by FCC rules, is supposed to be licensed, because of high power output. The Vendors include both bands in the radio, so you don't have to have a license to purchase, which was the original FCC thoughts.
I will not tell you to use a GMRS channel without a license, because that is unethical. But most do, the FCC knows that, and unless you are abusing their use, there will be no issues. GMRS channels are the onlly ones the radio will allow setting power to high.
Midland, Cobra and Uniden are common. I have Midland, and they are as good as the next. It was a turnkey package. They came with a desktop and a car charger, and VOX (voice activated) ear bud mics. Set the sensitivity, and it turns the mic on when you speak, instead of pushing a button. So get used to making a noise (chirp, click, etc.) before talking to activate, or the first word is clipped off! And I specifically got these because they also have NOAA weather radio on them. Some do, some don't. Nice to have at camp, to get storm updates.
Here is a link, and most have similar features and functions.
Shop around on Fleabay and Craigslist, and you might find a decent price for not abused. Or shop the sales at LGS, Dunhams, or Wallyworld!
