The Motorola MH230R two-way Radio is one that has a 23-mile range as well as 22-channel FRS/GMRS. One important thing about this two-way radio is that it comes in a pair. A typical situation where you might find yourself wanting to use a two-way radio like the Motorola MH230R might be when you are hiking, camping or fishing.
A two way radio such as this really would be the optimum way to keep in close contact with the other members of your group. Another situation where you might want to use something like this is if you are going on a cruise and you want a convenient way of staying in touch with your other group members when you are on the cruise ship.
