Yes, I actually researched specs for receiver sensitivity (0.3 uV/m) and antenna efficiency. The taller antennae on these Motorola T7400 GMRS/FRS radios mean they can reach much farther on 2 Watts than many can with 3 to 5 Watts, better battery life and longer range.
This "little" unit can reach a "theoretical" 12 miles, longest range of the Motorola brand. I've tested it to 8 miles over top of some big hills at Henry Coe (HQ to Hunting Hollow) and heard the other party clear as day. It saved hours of search and rescue for a lost soul on that occasion. It's proved itself invaluable on many, many rides. And these radios would have helped on many more rides to eliminate confusion and back tracking, if I could encourage more to carry them. They're tall but light and clip anywhere. I have four units I take to rides. I carry one on way-out solo rides too.
They don't fit on the wrist, but I use it with an arm band for easy access. Around $85 on Amazon
for the pair, including rechargeable batteries, two recharge docking stations, belt clips,....
