Question about Motorola Mag One BPR40 Two Way Radio
I have three radios. One recieves from the other two, but cannot send to the other two. The other two cannot receive. Any suggestions. I am about to clone them to the other radios we have, but don't want to mess something up.
Check your PL/DPL settings among the radios. You may not have them programmed the same as one another. PL (aka private line) blocks out other users who do not have the same code as one another. Your radio which receives could be set with no PL code and it receives and hears every thing, so it would hear the other two, but not talk to them if they have a PL code setting.
Another way to check this is typically the dealer who programmed them will have the side button directly under the PTT programmed for Monitor. If you press this button a short press you should temporarily go into "open squelch" and you would be able to hear everything on your frequency. Try pressing this button on one of your "two" radios and see if they can hear the "one" radio. If so, you know it is a programming issue. (provided the button is programmed to Monitor). If pressing the Monitor button does not allow temporary communication, you have another issue.
If the green light on the radio seems to come on and stay on continuously, the radio is in need of repair. (Average flat rate repair on tehese BPR40s are around $79 currently at many repair centers.)

A couple of thoughts:
1) Check the mic hole and see if it is covered or clogged with debris.
2) Does your PTT button seem hard or the opposite, mushy? You could have an internal PTT issue. The PTT is a common failure part on 2-way radios. Feel around for the 'sweet' spot and see if you can make a simple or partial transmission, or if it will even momentarily open up the receiver on the other unit. If so, your radio is in need of repair. It would likely need a new internal PTT. (At most repair centers where the BPR40 is repaired the flat rate repair currently are around $69 for the BPR40)
3) Has any reprogramming been recently done on the radio? If so, double check the programming to be sure your PL/DPL code is set the same as your other radio.\
4) Check your battery. Trade batteries with the other unit and see if the problem changes. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive.
