Anyone have any experience with these or similar devices....I have looked up a few companies that do similar...do they work as advertised? Or more like FRS/GMRS radios that promise 25 miles and can only get maybe 2.5 (yes i understand structures, electronic fields, etc). Beartooth I'm possibly looking to create a network with neighbors (if they will actually use). Right now some of us are using Baofeng radio set-ups just for FRS comms (antenna on roof or in a tree to get a little extra distance...setting up home-made repeaters, etc ). I personally dont feel they are better (esp with cost) but would love to hear others ideas breaking away from "normal" comms. Thanks!
