How To Clone a BPR40 Radio Cloning duplicates the contents of your radio (master radio) into the new radio (slave radio). Tuning and alignment information are not affected by cloning.
Set Up the Master Radio
1. Turn off the radio. 2. Press and hold Programmable Button 1 (the top programmable button) and turn on the radio. Keep pressing the Programmable Button 1 until beep is heard twice. 3. Release Programmable Button 1. Notice the LED changes to RED
Set Up the Slave Radio 1. Turn off the radio. 2. Press and hold Programmable Button 1(the top programmable button) and turn on the radio. Keep pressing Programmable Button 1 until the beep is heard three times. 3. Release Programmable Button 1. Notice that the LED changes to GREEN

Re: Motorola BPR40 how to clone
This requires the cloning cable # PMDN4060, which is available for around $15 (US dollars). The instructions for programming come with the cable. (Sorry, I was unable to find the instructions posted online).

Even with a cloning cable, you cannot always clone. The source radio and receiving radio must (1) be the same exact model, (2) have cloning enabled in the software a dealer used when they were programmed the first time. It sounds like you are doing the correct procedure.
If your BPR40s are VHF (model number beginning AAH84K), the answer is yes. The BPR40s can be reprogrammed to match your new RDM2080D VHF MURS radios. This can be done by an authorized Motorola dealer with a current software subscription. (If you cannot find a dealer, look us up online, we will be happy to assist.)
You might want to consider keeping your BPR40s around. The BPR40 has a more economical battery replacement cost (under $35), and is repairable/recondition. (currently $69 flat rate)
Your BPR40s are also capable of more wattage than the RDM2080, 5 watts vs. 2 watts. However, it should be noted the BPR40s will need to be programmed to the lower wattage when going to the MURS frequencies.
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.
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.)
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.
