These works on MURS frequencies and, like any radio signal, successful
communication varies with location. I suspect that most users will be
disappointed in the coverage radius of these units. Besides ... with no
cell signals ... that means no power to re-charge your smartphone
(needed to use these) Unless you have provided a way to re-charge your
phone these will have a *very* limited time of use.
