The range of radios varies depending on the wattage of a radio. Portables tend to be 2-5 watts and mobiles can be 25-50 watts. The type of environment you are in also determines the range. Are you inside or outside a building? Are you in a hilly environment? Are you around a lot of tall buildings or trees? A portable tends to go 1-2 miles and a mobile tends to go 10 miles. Now that is only an estimate because we don't know what type of environment you are in and wattage radio you are using.
