Intercom range 20S to 20S

A friend and I each got a 20S recently.  We went out for a ride recently and were amazed at how short the range was on these.  We experienced significant breakup of transmissions at more than about 1/4 mile between us, while line of site between us was clear and unobstructed.  Both antennae were up.  Is this what others are seeing?  My understanding is the range is supposed to be up to 2 km (1.2 miles) in open terrain.  We didn't see anywhere near this on straight, flat, unobstructed roads.
