Commercial WALKIE Talkies come in many types and prices. The main factor is how you will be using them. If they are to be used for short range, 1 to 2 miles, and not on an existing system then the best bet is a 1/2 watt "dot" frequency crystal radio. they use less power and are less expensive as they are " off the shelf" and have less electronics. If you are adding the radio's to an existing system then you will want a synthesized radio, it must be on the band and have the toning to work on your system. You must also consider the number of channels and power. The power is usually 2 or 5 watts, the difference in range is about 5% but the 5 watt radios battery life will be shorter. we choose the best radios based on price and our laboratory tests
