Question about Motorola Mag One BPR40 Two Way Radio

2 Answers

Bought a used Motorloa Mag One BPR40 at a tag sale and then bought a new one. The used one looks like it was used by a business so it was probably "programmed." How do i get the two BPR's to now talk to each other? Also, the used one has a loud buzzing tone on some of the channels Thanks

You can return both radios to factory default. This will make them have the same itenerant frequencies.

Your radios will need to be programmed by a Motorola dealer to match one another. (Usually $15-$25.) The software used to program the radios is a Motorola proprietary software and not for sale, but most dealers have a subscription to it.

The loud buzzing indicates the channel you are on is not programmed.

Best regards.

Radio Tuning


That radio is easily programmable for other, or additional frequencies in the same band. I believe (I've been out of the business for a while) you need a special computer interface and software in order to affect a change. I'd contact a Motorola shop. You will also need to be licenced for the new frequency. I hope this helps.

Fuse Location on Mag One BPR40


these usually use a diode for reverse polarity protection and no fuses. You will need a full schematic and probably a service manual.

Mt mag one bpr40 uhf 450/470 will receive but will not transmit. green light is on all the time


It probably has "busy channel inhibit" turned on in the menus, and the squelch is open, thus making it think there is a signal on the channel you're trying to use.

Green light coming on and staying on... Sadly nothing the end-user can do to alleviate this problem themselves. It is usually repairable by a trained/equipped repair facility.

Have two bpr40 need to find out the frequencys


The BPR40 is a dealer programmable radio. The frequencies would need to be read out using Motorola proprietary software. The only thing you can tell from looking at the radio is whether it is VHF or UHF. Model number AAH84K... is VHF and AAH84R... is UHF.

I bought 2 Motorola bpr40 Mag One radios, but one is used and their channels do not match. How do I return them to factory defaults?


The BPR40 is only programmable by Motorola proprietary software. The easiest method for programming them to match one another would be to take them to a dealer. Prices vary, so you might want to call around and price check your area dealers.

Best regards.

Mag One Radio - Static


If your BPR40 radios are all about the same age, it could be a sign of your batteries getting old and needing replaced. A bad or weak battery will cause the radio to exhibit static, and then eventually poor or no transmit. Check your battery date code first, it is a 3 digit number on the battery label, followed by a space and then usually a number 1. On the 3-digit code, the first number is the year, the next two the week of the year. 229 would be 2012 the 29th week. Replacement batteries should be available for around $35.

If you feel the battery is not the issue, you may have ONE radio which is causing the problem. Try using all your radios and testing by shutting off just one radio at a time. You may identify the culprit. Motorola offers a one year warranty on the BPR40, after the warranty is done, flat rate repair is typically available for $69.

Third possible cause is some type of interference in your area. If this is the case, your radios may need a PL code programmed into them, if you don't already have one. This will filter out unwanted noise or transmissions. Sidenote: If you've added any new computers or electronic office equipment recently, it may also interfere. Some foreign produced computers will lack the filters required in the USA to prevent interference with communications. Coiling excess cables can be helpful in stopping RF noise.

The second of static at the end of your transmission is called "white tail" and is common in all modern radios. There is a programming feature to eliminate most of the white tail noise, it is called reverse burst. Your radio dealer can reprogram your radios and add this to your radios, or future radios you buy. The trade-off with reverse burst is that you will loose the last of your spoken words if you do not hold your PTT an extra moment, as reverse burst actually transmits back or cuts off the end of a transmission to eliminate the noise. White tail is worse when mixing old model and new model radios together.

Best regards.

How do I connect Mag One BPR40 two way radio by Motorola to CP100 two way radio by Motorola? I already had about 8 CP100's and we just got 2 new Mag One's. Thanks.


The Mag One BPR40 is dealer programmable. You have two choices:

1) Reprogram your CP100s to match the new BPR40s. For this you would need to know what the dealer programmed the BPR40s to... OR
2) Take your BPR40s back to the place of purchase and request they reprogram them to match your CP100s. This should be a free service since you just purchased the BPR40s. They will need to know some settings from the CP100s to make the match.

Best regards.
