      Thank you for your question.
      There are a lot of variables that come into play with VHF radios and the distance they transmit. As a rule of thumb---1 watt equals 1 mile of communication distance. Keep in mind that the FCC limits handheld VHF's to a max of 6 watts----so you will not get a lot of range from a handheld. Hand held units work great for emergency situations and keeping contact with other boats nearby ----but for long distance communications you will need a fixed mount radio.
