I need one walkie talkie that can communicate with my permanently mounted VHF boat radio. What kinds work? Those FMRS? I got a cheapo pair of 3 mile range walkie talkies and they don't. Going to Canada, need a vhf walkie talkie for base camp to keep in touch with my teen boys as they sleep the first 1/2 of the day while i troll out front.

FMRS operates on a completely different frequency than Marine/VHF. You will need a specific VHF walkie talkie. They run around $80-$300, I believe. The Unidens appear to be the least expensive.

Here is a list of several models with links to retail sites:

Don't forget that VHF is only "Line of Sight" so if there is an obstruction between you and the boys, you won't be able to communicate.

FYI. I do not believe it is permitted to take two way radios into Canada. Can anyone confirm this?
