walkie-talkie recommendation?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to buy a walkie talkie for my next run.  Can anyone recommend a make/model?  Or at the very least can someone let me know what type I need to buy (I think I'm supposed to be looking for an FMS radios, but I'm technically ignorant and realize I might be mistaken).  Thanks.

Any two way with a main channel, and a privacy code (aka CTCSS) feature will work.

We use the main channel 7, with a privacy code channel of 21 on runs. A nice set will be in the $50 range.

A FRS is your standard two way, doesn't require a license, and is your basic handheld unit, that sounds like what you're looking for

 

Here's a great article for understanding radios: https://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/twoway-radios.html
