Hi. Those like the CTX-85 were advertized in perfect athmospheric conditions and clean line of sight to be 16 miles. A more realistic spec would be 5 miles and if you are in the woods, probably only 1 miles.

The best worst case scenario is to test them in the fog in a forest. Note that the original spec are for new batteries, the distance will go down with them.
