Back To The Future 3 - Who Needs a Walkie-Talkie
When Doc is out on the train trying to get the train to blow the last log hence letting them hit 88 MPH. They begin talking on their walkie-talkies. Doc slips off the train rail and Marty says into the walkie-talkie, "Doc, Doc I'm going to slip you the hover-board." Doc is holding on the the rail with both hands and there is no way that he can hear what Marty said. But he acknowledges with a head nod.

It is never actually shown what happens to the walkie talkie but I assumed that Doc had put it in his pocket and so could still hear it, but couldn't reply and so nodded instead.

>>walkie talkies need a radio transmitter within the area to work. the year 1885 didnt have that so theoretically, they would'nt work in the first place Uh, no they don't. Cell phones require network service, but walkie-talkies have transceivers which don't rely on any external equipment. This is why they'll work anywhere: on mountains, in the woods miles away from anything, etc.

1-walkie talkies are always tranceivers which mean that they are transmitters and recivers TWO-even in time traveling to the past if there are two walkie talkies at the same frequency they will pick up each others transmissions.

When Marty hangs out of the car and says "I'll slip you the hoverboard" he has the board hanging out of the car as well. Doc would have seen it and figured out what Marty was going to do, hence the nodding of the head.

Well, yes, it's funny how he manages to hear Marty, especially with the locomotive making all that noise, but I guess the doc has super sonic hearing. And those walky talkies look like they were purchased at a 99 cents store.
