Motorola BPR40 review

It’s been almost two years since the Motorola BPR40 was released.  At first, this radio was thought of as a cheap knock off.  People were skeptical of its small size and were weary that the “Mag One” label wouldn’t hold up to Motorola’s quality sandards.

After a couple of years, the BPR40 is gaining strength as one of Motorola’s top lower tiered radios. I recently hooked my Uncle up with a set to use at his meat packing plant and for hunting. Granite, this radio is more expensive than the toy radios that most hunters use. But, with 4 watts of power, it is not going to have as difficult as a time transmitting through the thick foliage.

One of the best features of the BPR40 is that it comes with a full magone accessory line of headsets, earpieces and speaker microphones. An even better feature is that the accessories are less expensive than the Motorola CP200. The magone accessories are of cheaper quality, but do the job for most applications. It is common to see bouncers at clubs using the Motorola BPR40 and having a surveillance kit earpiece.
