GMRS distance

I'm using a 5W Baofeng UV-5G with a stock 15 inch antenna.  I have a 15 inch Nagoya 771g antenna coming in tomorrow.  Maybe it will make a difference.

One repeater is about 35 miles distant.  Makes sense about atmospheric conditions causing the issue.  However, only the temperature is lower and there is no sunlight at night.

The local GMRS repeater is 21.5 miles away. And it is hit or miss if I can be heard on the repeater with my HT. It depends on the atmospheric conditions. The same goes for the 70cm band too. That distance is easy for my HT on the 2m band.
