There are a few reasons why the range of a walkie-talkie may not be as far as stated by the manufacturer. One reason could be interference from other electronic devices, such as cell phones or microwaves, which can disrupt the radio signal. Another reason could be physical obstructions, such as buildings or trees, which can block or weaken the signal. Additionally, the environment in which the walkie-talkie is used can also affect the range, such as using it in a mountainous or urban area. Finally, the quality of the walkie-talkie itself can also play a role, with higher quality devices generally having a greater range.
