    Take them to your local mall and have fun with them.

    I just bought some new ones on Nov. for deer season. Gotta love the walkie-talkies.

    Give it to a friend when you go to the mall and refuse to acknowledge what they say unless they say "over".

    Then find a a way to make them use the word "over" at the end of the sentence, and make sure they say it twice before you respond. :D

    [Thank you Stewie Griffin]

    Throw one down a well and pretend to be trapped......



    EDIT: I just read what I typed, and realized that if you don't know the Simpsons episode I'm referring to, you may think I'm being serious.....

    A few years ago, before FRS radios became really popular here in Canada, I discovered that my local 24-screen movieplex used walkie-talkies that used the same channel as the FRS radios I brought home from the US.

    One day as I was going to watch a movie, I hit the "call" button on my radio, and heard this:

    "What was that?"
    "Probably just some guy's cell phone."

    (I was waiting for them to clue in that a cell phone wouldn't be heard by EVERYONE in the theater, but nobody caught on... )

    On my way out of the theater after the movie ended, I remember saying into the radio, "Thanks for the movie, guys, it was great!" and then running out of there! :D

    No, FRS/GMRS frequencies are around 465 MHz, nowhere near 2.4 GHz.
