Somewhat like the book series Chicken Soup for the Soul, our days at the radio repair facility can consist of true stories about ordinary people’s lives and they way they use and sometime abuse their 2-way radios. Today the subject of soup came up because of an interestingly packaged Motorola BPR40 radio, which came in for repair packaged in an AT&T cellphone box and an open, but clean, soup package.
This BPR40 radio suffers from low receive (Rx) audio, and the user says it can faintly be heard. Currently the radio is in line awaiting the electronics technician’s careful assessment. Barring any unforeseen circumstance this BPR40 radio should be repaired and headed back to the tofu with spinach soup eating customer in just a few days.
Low receive (Rx) audio can be caused by a number of issues including a bad volume control, a mix of wideband and narrowband radios, and more. When sending in your radios for repair be certain to include a brief description of the problem you are experiencing. It helps the technical staff zero in quickly on what needs to be repaired.
