I want to know talk range of Talkabout T5720 - Motorola Talkabout T5720 (7 Channels) 2-Way Radio
Handheld radios generally will talk "radio-to-radio", "line-of-sight" up to 2 miles. Once you start putting obstacles in between the radios you will shorten your range.
Advertising literature will sometimes give numbers such as "5 mile range". While this is possible in ideal conditions, it is not common in real-world situations. HEIGHT and PLACEMENT of the antenna determines the range of the radio. Example: Talking from a mountaintop you could talk far into a valley below, much further than the expected 2 miles. However, if you were to be in an congested city, you may only be able to talk a single city block due to obstacles.
To get the best range, use a well charged battery pack, wear your radio high on your body, and always hold the antenna perpendicular to the ground when using the radio.
