I don't see why not. That is not very far for GMRS as long as there are no hills between your antenna and the repeaters. In fact 5 watts should be enough. I live on a 500 foot hill and with a roof top J-pole can easily reach 30 miles simplex using Wouxun KG-935G+ handheld to the same radio in a mobile set up using a mag mount antenna. That's just furthest we have tested, I think it would reach much further given line of sight conditions.
