      • Q:

        What is the range of this radio. Can an external antenna be used and is it safe to assume the battery life depends on the watts of power used? Thanks for any help that can be provided.

          A:

          Thank you for your question.
          All VHF works is described to work with the basic idea that one watt of power=one mile of range. So a 5watt unit theoretically has a 5 mile range. The terrain you use your VHF in can either extend or decrease that range---anything that interferes with line of sight will decrease the range. If you need more information---please feel free to contact or technical services department.
