I use Kenwood 805D radios for comunication between my house, shop, and trucks. I also use a realistic HT on my atv when I am around town or out at the farm 1 mile away. I am located so rural that I only ocasionaly hear anyone other than my family on any of the GMRS frequencys. With my shop antenna at 8' obove ground I can reach out 10 + miles to my truck.  I have used this equiptment for several years. I have had Zero problems withth is equiptment.  I am planing on setting up a radio at my father in laws house a couple of blocks away due to poor to no cell service and his health and age requires better communication.  Land line phone is out of the budget. I highly recoment the kenwood 805D radios.  One major advantage is the fact that they are front panel programable.

I have one and a few older 805's all good little radios and very easily programed through the front panel.
