I am looking at buying a few hand held radios for use by safety marshals during an ultra trail run in Botswana, Africa. The location will be a salt pan so as flat as is possible on Earth. And no obstacles at all.
What range can I expect from a hand held radio that claims a range of 35 miles? I am looking at the Motorola T460 talkabout as an example. I know I won’t get 35 miles but will I get 6 miles or 10 miles?
