How far can you talk on 2m FM simplex with a handheld transceiver?

Cheap Baofeng handhelds sometimes get a bad rap. And the antenna that they (and other handhelds) come with doesn't make the transceiver that good for simplex unless you're elevated. But if you can put on a good antenna then you can have better luck. Enjoy this video where I give it a range test from the beach.  

Now's a great time to be reading books. Especially with not much else to do.
