Re: Hakea prison fire.

The question wasnt directed at you, it was a general question. And i would have thought Uhf or vhf high would work better through buildings.

Re: WANTED: Handheld CB radio AT LEAST 10KM RANGE

You wont get a hand held (regardless of your budget) that will do 10km without thousands of dollars worth of infrastructure in the form of a repeater.
