When upgrading to a newer radio people often ask us “what is the best basic radio?” Our answer remains unchanged… the Motorola BPR40. It is small, easy to use, no excess bells-toots-or-whistles. It has the capability of 1 to 8 channels, and can do low power or high power, as warranted. Plus, the replacement battery pack is affordable, as is the future price of repair. (Currently $69 flat rate repair.)
And FYI: Our end of year special is a 4-pack of the BPR40 radios for only $699. Includes radio, NiMH battery, antenna, drop-in charger. (Save close to $100 on this offer.)
The guys in the radio repair center remain busy as we end 2011. They are still maintaining a 5-7 workday turn around on most models. If you have a time you are slow or close down during the Winter, it might be a good time to get your radios in for service and/or narrowband reprogramming as needed.
