This question already has an answer here:

I don’t have much experience with radios, but I was wondering if it would possible to have two CB or GMRS radios that will connect to each other over 8-12 Miles og distance? My budget is about $175. If it helps I would know what direction the other radio would be, it’s in Lancaster PA so not a bunch of interference, and it could be outside on a deck. What would y’all recommend, and is this even a reasonable request for my budget? Thanks a ton.
