While doing a 50 acres controlled burn on hilly terrain this weekend my brother and I came to the realization we have got to get some radios that can handle our needs. We've got 500 acres overall and we're asking for trouble not being able to communicate across the entire property. Does anyone have any recommendations they'd be willing to share on radios that have worked really well for them in large hilly areas?

Unfortunately there is not much out there on the non licensed consumer level. I have cross band repeat on the Amateur Radio mobile in my truck, so can almost always hit a repeater somewhere by activating it with my handheld. If you have cell service there, phones are your best bet. AT&T sucks in rural areas here, but Verizon has excellent coverage, so you might investigate different carriers

We've got ATT and Verison and neither are good except on the hill tops. We're looking into a repeater for the phones. The repeater will work for 2 way radios too?
entirely different repeater setup and frequencies for Amateur radio. I am doubting a cell booster will benefit you much, if at all as the range is limited to pretty much a short distance around where the unit is located
