Both buttons have a short and a long press function. The button right below the PTT button is typically programmed to short press Monitor, long press Sticky Monitor. The bottom button comes from the factory on scan/nuisance channel delete. The buttons can be custom programmed when the dealer is programming the radio, so these are just a general guess based on the factory default setting. Other options include repeater talkaround, high/low power, volume set, and maybe tight loose squelch.

Best regards.

Motorola BPR 40 will transmit,but not receive through the microphone. Works fine as a handheld

You may have one of three problems: Your audio accessory jack is bad, you are using the wrong mic for the radio, or your mic is bad. Try the mic on a known good BPR40 and if it test good, if so, your BPR40 with the problem needs a new audio accessory jack. (Repair is available for this model.) We have found the BPR40 will only work properly with the remote speaker mic designed for it, despite some other Motorola mics appearing to fit the jack. Construction grade mic PMMN4013 is a good option, as is the lightweight PMMN4077.

Is motorola cls-1110 compatible with bpr40 radios

yes, with conditions. The CLS comes preprogrammed with frequencies and tone codes. The BPR requires software and cables. It is not a preprogrammed business radio, but a fully programmable business radio. If your BPR radios are first: UHF, then they can be programmed to match the CLS. Do note, a few of the CLS frequencies are approved by the FCC for low power only, meaning a maximum of 2 watt power output. Find a dealer willing to do the programming for you if you do not understand. Our shop does it often.

My bpr 40 all time have a green light on in a scan mode how i can block the scan mode

In order for your radio to scan, it would need one of the side buttons programmed to scan. Usually the top side button is programmed for monitor/sticky monitor, and the bottom button can be programmed to any of a number of features, one of them being scan. These buttons have both a long press selection and a short press selection. All this being said, it is possible the bottom button is programmed for scan. Try pressing it a short press and/or a long press and see if it shuts off your scan. To remove scan completely from your radio it would need ot be reprogrammed by an authorized Motorola dealer.

We purchasedn 3 bpr 40 and we justed ordered another, when we turn the bpr on to the channel of the 3 others that are in use, we just get a low continual tone, i tried a radio check on channel 1 with no...

Your new radio is likely not programmed the same as the others. A continual tone indicates a channel which is not programmed (doesn't have a frequency installed).

The other thing which can cause a tone, is a low or uncharged battery. You might try switching one of the known good batteries to the new radio to see if it will work. If you still have the same continual tone with a known good battery installed, you have a programming issue. If the battery swap solves the problem, then you need to investigate why your battery isn't charged up.

Either way, contact the dealer where you purchased the BPR40, they should provide programming free, or a warranty replacement battery for free. If you ordered online or by mail, and you just received the radio within the week, you should request they provide return shipping for you.

Best regards.
