I've used it for camping it past 12 years. Before that we used it at theme parks where GMRS/FRS was insanely overloaded. Can hear Walmart, Lowes and a couple of construction crews using MURS, but its mostly quiet and the wife likes her radios that way.

I routinely reach for Motorola Spirits of the two-channel two-watt variety, on Blue Dot and Green Dot.  I also have a bunch of Dakota Alert kit, with the intention of eventually installing some of their MURS Alert sensors, or at least transmitters.  (Modified, for example, to alert when the mailbox is opened -- all the better to keep an eye out for expensive deliveries!)


I've also got a Radio Shack blue-green mobile unit, though I've yet to figure out a really elegant way to mount that in a modern truck's cab.  I kind of wish Midland or Cobra would build a handheld-control-head MURS unit, those things are so much easier to cleanly install.
