What is the range of Handheld Radio & How to increase it

Well what is the range of handheld radio(ht)? The average range of a HT is around 2 -3 miles in an urban area without repeater use but with repeater use is around 50 miles. But this depend on many factors like terrain, power, antenna & evaluation. 

Terrain without trees will do better than with trees same goes for many other things. Evaluation also goes with this because if you are on the 20 floor of a building it will get more range than on ground level. Power mostly effects the quality of signal in analog but in digital it sounds about the same with all amounts of power. Antennas is the the most important factor of the range of a HT. If you have a great radio and a poor antenna it won't do as good as a great antenna with a poor radio.
