Default 2 Way Radios

Ok, many people mention two way radios as one of the things to bring.
Did you use the two mile ones or the 5 mile ones.
Also, do they work between decks, as its all metal n wood around there.

Thanks!

the two mile ones are fine if and only if they have Sub-Channels. There is way to much chatter on the main channels and they don't usually work very well between the decks. They work fine once you are outside

We have the COBRA five mile ones with sub-channels and they worked great. We were on the lowest level and could call the kids at the pool on the highest level. Got them at Walmart for about $70 for 2 radios and the charger.

I just bought 2 5-mile radios that work great, have sub channels etc. at Best Buy for less that 20.00. I even bought an extra set for my parents to use at home who refuse to get a cell phone. They go for walks often. There are many uses at home too.
